Description

Trauma can feel like a labyrinth, twisting on itself like a maze of despair, without end or exit. This seems particularly true in today’s chaotic world of pandemics, climate change, social conflict, and systemic violence.

Drawing from her experiences as researcher, trauma survivor, and psychotherapist, she examines various causes of trauma, details how to understand and treat trauma’s effects, and explores the role society plays in activating traumatic defenses.
