This one-of-a-kind guide serves as a rich and essential resource for mental health professionals working with women whose lives have been shattered by the trauma of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse. The principles set forth are based on Maxine Harris's groundbreaking work with some of the most symptomatic trauma survivors, including women who have been incarcerated or institutionalized, and those with histories of drug addiction, serious mental illness, and/or homelessness.The detailed treatment presented in Trauma Recovery and Empowerment is based on the author's conviction that symptomatic behavior often begins as a survivor's response to overwhelming trauma. Part One of the intervention focuses on empowerment and wellness issues designed to help women overcome feelings of victimization. Women are then better able to tackle the topics in parts Two and Three of the manual on emotional, sexual, and physical abuse and the far-reaching impact such trauma has on their relationships, emotional stability, and careers. Leaders are guided through the intervention with specific discussion questions, a sampling of typical responses, and experimental exercise for each topic. The manual concludes with step-by-step procedures for tailoring the intervention to specific populations. behavioral sciences,gender studies,general,health fitness and dieting,internal medicine,medical books,medicine,mental health,mental illness,politics and social sciences Psychiatry, Free Press

A one-of-a-kind guide that serves as an essential resource for mental health professionals working with women whose lives have been shattered by the trauma of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse.Millions of women seek help every year for troubling depression or anxiety, for puzzling physical symptoms like headaches, muscle aches, and stomach cramps, for addictions to drugs, alcohol, or food, and for problems with relationships. What their therapists or physicians are beginning to discover is that trauma, whether past or ongoing, is the cause of many of these problems. For almost five years, 27 clinicians and more than 500 participants have developed and refined the interventions contained in this manual, combining the best elements of the social skills training, psycho-educational and psychodynamic techniques, and the peer support groups that studies show are highly effective with survivors. Trauma Recovery and Empowerment guides leaders through the entire trauma recovery process. Each section includes specific discussion questions, a sampling of typical responses, and experiential exercises for each topic. A first-person account by a trauma survivor or therapist brings each session to life.
