Trauma and Recovery

Audiobook

The groundbreaking work on trauma that remains a "classic for our generation" (Bessel van der Kolk, MD, author of The Body Keeps the Score)
Trauma and Recovery is the foundational text on understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a political frame, psychiatrist Judith L. Herman argues that psychological trauma is inseparable from its social and political context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, she shows surprising parallels between private horrors like child abuse and public horrors like war.
This edition includes a new epilogue by the author assessing what has—and hasn't—changed in understanding and treating trauma over the last three decades.
Hailed by the New York Times as "one of the most important psychiatry works to be published since Freud," Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how we heal.
