- For survivors rather than professionals--from a therapist who is also a trauma survivor: With the innovativeness of Waking the Tiger and the practical heft of I Can't Get Over It, Cori explores the journey all trauma survivors make, offering practical information and healing stories that provide a way out for those who are suffering. - Unique insights and strategies for healing: As both a licensed therapist and a client, Cori's frank talk about the downside of the psychotherapy field and medications is revelatory. Her empowering suggestions for clients in psychotherapy include how to know when a therapist is talking too much and when it's appropriate to change therapists. Along with devoting a chapter to relevant spiritual issues, Healing from Trauma also provides tools that have not been shared directly with survivors in this practical way. - Speaks to an increasingly large audience: Sources of psychological trauma include sexual abuse, interpersonal violence, war, natural disasters, life-threatening accidents, and tragic losses. One in 10 women, (and one in 20 men) will experience PTSD. Many more will suffer depression, addictions, and other mental disorders and life problems that stem from unhealed trauma. Two of the biggest sources of long-lasting trauma effects are childhood abuse and sexual assault. Cori's book reaches out to this ever-growing number of trauma survivors.
