Combining years of research, teaching, and experience treating trauma survivors, Dr. Jon G. Allen offers compassionate and practical guidance to understanding trauma and its effects on the self and relationships. "Coping With Trauma" is based on more than a decade of Dr. Allen's experience conducting educational groups for persons struggling with psychiatric disorders stemming from trauma. Written for a general audience, this book does not require a background in psychology. Readers will gain essential knowledge to embark on the process of healing from the complex wounds of trauma, along with a guide to current treatment approaches.
A respected researcher and educator of both trauma survivors and mental health professionals, Dr. Allen provides an insightful and informative resource that offers real hope in coming to terms with trauma. With an author who is both witness and guide, readers will be introduced to and encouraged in a process of healing that will reach the depth of wounds to the soul, mind, and body.
For clinicians, this compelling work includes broad discussions of trauma from both psychological and psychiatric perspectives. New developments in attachment theory have reshaped the whole book. Important updates from the first edition include new chapters on illness and depression, including suicidal states; self-defeating aspects of personality disorders and self-destructiveness; emotion and emotion regulation; and-most crucial-maintaining hope, the foundation of healing.
This exceptionally comprehensive overview of a wide range of traumatic experiences offers a uniquely useful guide for patients, their loved ones, and mental health care professionals alike.
