A fascinating compendium of articles that look at trauma through a myriad of lenses--existential neuroscience, history, psychoanalysis, sociology, traumatic stress research, literature--these beautifly crafted essays engage the reader throughout. Dori Laub's research into the importance of witnessing and gathering testimony from victims of severe trauma--whether related to the Holocaust, sexual abuse, or war--to help them create narratives out of what was inchoate pain, is central to so many of the contributors. Research is used as witness in Robert Jay Lipton's work and so too is literature as in Schreiber's discussion of Toni Morrison's fiction. The chapters on brain research help us to better understand the individual and social impact of trauma and how much has been learned in recent years that influences the way clinicians interact with patients. Bringing together a neurobiological and psychological understanding of trauma, Schreiber's edited volume is an essential book for psychoanalysts who want to have a more thorough understanding of trauma as well as for all those in other disciplines who are interested in the subject.

With a finite blend of history, neuroscience, psychoanalysis, and studies of creativity with a finite blend of history, neuroscience, psychoanalysis, and studies of creativity, Schreiber's book offers deep and far-reaching insights into the nature of psychic trauma and its long-lasting effects. Healing Trauma addresses the anguish of survivors of the Holocaust, veterans of war, targets of racism, victims of rape, and sufferers of natural disasters. The book's emphasis upon listening and its fundamentally interdisciplinary approach undergirds ameliorative strategies in this realm. A moving and clinically useful contribution, indeed!

Listening is the heart of all trauma therapy. In Healing Trauma, edited by Evelyn Schreiber, experts in the field examine the core listening processes in trauma treatment. Clinical and experiential examples intimately absorb the reader in the processes of witnessing, symbolic representation, making metaphor, holding the unspeakable, and finding ways to actively and creatively engage traumatic process. Healing Trauma is an eye-opening, must read for all students of trauma.

--Janet Bachant, PhD, Professor of Psychology, State College, Metropolitan Center
