Invaluable Resource for Trauma Survivors  Apr 27, 2008
This is an extremely well-written, accessible book--it will be a welcomed friend to trauma survivors and those who love them. Cori's work offers many useful insights and tools for managing the sometimes overwhelming symptoms of trauma. The author masterfully blends her expertise with compassion, encouragement, hope, and honesty. It is a truly empowering resource to be visited again and again.

Incredibly connective!  Apr 20, 2008
I could relate to the book front to back! I still am going through it after reading it twice!
The journey to "even more than healed."  Apr 15, 2008
Since my trauma-related dreams surfaced three years ago, I've been to three counselors who welcomed trauma patients. After reading this book, I realize they knew little of the territory. And of the several books on trauma I've read, none came close to this thorough one in its scope and supportiveness. I hadn't realized my easily triggered nervous system, allergies, extreme sensitivity, and difficulty in planning, organizing and moving ahead with my life were trauma-related. In fact, I was about to embark on expensive allergy desensitization work, but after reading this, decided to get at the deeper causes instead. I'm already noticing an improvement in symptoms, just having worked through the book. And I wouldn't have made it through the book - it's been such an emotionally charged mirror for me - if Cori were not so encouraging. A golden strength seemed to be transmitted through her words, almost like a healing voice in my head as I read.

Cori writes as a fellow traveler. She presents up-to-date information on physiology, psychology, and spirituality. Then skillfully and gently guides you through the landscape, asking you questions about you, including exercises to help you identity your symptoms and your needs. Like a good friend, she shares what has worked well for her. Many books make you feel like a statistic or one of a herd of patients. Not this one.

This book has been pivotal, transforming the way I sense my inertia, vulnerability, and frustration. It's given me a glimpse that it's possible to fully heal, and what that might look like.

Start here. The focus is on you, not on a theory or technique, although you'll get an insightful, comprehensive overview of the best therapies for trauma, both professional and self-help.
A Wonderful Resource for Those Affected by Trauma  Apr 4, 2008
If you are a trauma survivor -- especially if you are just beginning to deal with your trauma and symptoms -- please read this book.

This is, finally, the book I've been looking for and really needed a year or two ago when I first started dealing directly with my trauma history and its affects on my life! I recommend this whole heartedly as a great resource for survivors and their loved ones. It is the best general guide to the subject that I have read.

I have read most of the other books folks typically recommend, and usually found them interesting and helpful. At the same time, I felt like they were either to detailed and technical (Levine, Herman, Rothschild, etc.) to really be practical. Or, they had too many exercises, reflections, and inspirational quotes for me (The Courage to Heal and its kindred) and I found them a bit too sappy and off-putting for where I was in my process.

In this book, Cori strikes just the right balance of information, suggestions, and tone. She also does a wonderful job of summarizing what trauma is, how it affects the body and mind, what therapeutic methods can be helpful, and how to generally care for oneself through the healing process. She also provides tools for self-reflection, and intersperses stories from other survivors that make the data relevant and come to life.

If this book had been available when I started dealing with my trauma, I think I would have understood the situation better and would have been more equipped to make good choices and deal with things in a caring and effective way.

While this is clearly a sort of overview or handbook, Cori provides plenty of additional references and resources so you can do further investigating on your own.

My one small quibble (and it's is very small), is that she only mentions meditation and mindfulness practices in passing. I have found these practices to be essential to my healing. But I recognize that they are a bit outside the mainstream, and certainly aren't for everyone.

Overall, a wonderful resource!
