Act it Outby Stefanie Auerbach Stolinsky, Trudy Moss (Foreword by), Renee Emunah (Foreword by)
In Act It Out, psychologist and former actress, Stefanie Stolinsky, Ph.D., sees a striking similarity between the dynamics of actors who suffer from stage fright and paralyzing fear, and those of abuse survivors who want to be in touch with their feelings. Using the same methods that actors use to unblock their emotions in order to play dramatic roles, she helps survivors uncover buried feelings, remember painful experiences, begin to deal more directly with the symptoms of earlier traumas, and step into their real role in life. In this unique guide, Stolinsky presents these methods in a series of safe, simple, and creative exercises, which allow you to open up slowly, at your own pace, and retain control over exactly how much you want to remember, without becoming overwhelmed or frightened. Because you are in charge, these exercises can safely be done alone or in a group setting, with or without a therapist's assistance.
