Trauma and Recovery: From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror

by Judith Lewis Herman - £12.99  Rivers Oram Press (1994)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780863584305 | ISBN 10: 0863584306

This is a book about restoring connections: between the public and private worlds, between the individual and the community, between men and women.
In this landmark study of trauma, now with a new afterword, Judith Lewis Herman, psychiatrist and award-winning author, makes the revolutionary link between the 'heroic' suffering of men in war and political struggle and the degraded suffering of women who are victims of rape, incest and domestic violence. Herman repeatedly challenges established orthodoxies, identifies a new diagnostic category for those suffering from 'hidden' traumas and proposes a ground-breaking recovery programme that favours a process of reintegration to one of catharsis.
A deeply compassionate and readable work, Trauma and Recovery is required reading for all those who seek a deeper understanding of the psychology of men and women.

"Cogently argued and well illustrated... It sets abuse of whatever kind in its wider contecxt. This book will be of benefit to all, either practitioners or supervisors, who grapple with the implications of work with survivors."
(Sue Clements-Jewery, RELATE)
