I am currently reading through an amazing body of work, about emotional trauma and healing…by Daniela Sieff Ph.D.
I highly recommend this book http://www.danielasieff.com/
Daniela, has been so supportive of my work, and shared some very kind words, which I am truly thankful for..
“Hi Lilly, …REALLY appreciate the line you tread between deep compassion and empathy and acceptance, and yet not reifying the ‘victim identity’. Your posts have such ability to heal shame.”
“Lilly – thank you so much. Your page and your work is so nourishing and healing – it is moving to be recommended by you! “
And Daniela has so kindly shared my website too, stating “The website has thousands of visitors and its author writes with humanity, sensitivity and a deeply embodied understanding.”
I am still always so shocked when very educated, and insightful people, who’s careers are about trauma, speak highly of me and my work.
And so deeply thankful for this and their support.
This is some more info about the book…..and the conversations with several highly educated and insightful contributors…plus some endorsements…
The contributors have their roots in three interrelated perspectives, creating a uniquely layered and multi-faceted book. (1) Psychotherapeutic perspectives take us inside the world of the unconscious mind and body to illuminate how emotional trauma distorts our relationships with ourselves and with other people (Donald Kalsched, Bruce Lloyd, Tina Stromsted, Marion Woodman). (2) Neurobiological perspective explore how trauma impacts the systems that mediate our emotional lives and well-being (Ellert Nijenhuis, Allan Schore, Daniel Siegel). (3) Evolutionary perspectives contextualise emotional trauma in terms of the legacy we have inherited from our distant ancestors (James Chisholm, Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, Randolph Nesse).
