Childhood Trauma Recovery: The Email Conversations With My Therapist That Helped Me Overcome Childhood PTSD.
This unusual and uplifting book book is a true and authentic chronicle of the author’s therapy journey to overcome childhood trauma, as told through a series of intimate emails with her therapist. The author credits the rich dialogue in these conversations as an integral part of her recovery.
They chart the ups and downs of therapy and how the therapeutic relationship develops & evolves over time. The reader is drawn into this relationship – a relationship that is usually kept private and confidential.
While the abuse is in the background, specific events are only mentioned occasionally, instead the emails focus on her progress, which is what makes it heartening to read.
This book will be of particular interest to psychotherapists, psychotherapy and psychology students, and anyone having therapy themselves for complex trauma.
