    What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind---and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, he tells their stories of trauma and transformation.

    In cases of severe trauma, the spiritual dimension of the healing process is often the most mysterious. Transforming Trauma brings internationally renowned teachers Caroline Myss and James Finley together for the first time on audio to explore how a combination of contemplative and clinical practices can dramatically enhance our ability to heal.

    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Radiance says: "Love Brene Brown, didn't like the narrator"

    What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    To dare greatly, step up to the play and swing as best I can.

    Healing Sex is the encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault- heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single - who want to delight in their own sexuality. While most books on the topic broach sexuality to reassure women that it's all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes" - to their own desires and on their own terms.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Healing Sex: A Mind-Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma to be better than the print version?

    In some ways it is better in audio because you can hear the words of others traumatized and it makes it more real and understandable that you are not alone. It is healthy to hear the variety of sexual words said out loud to remove some of the "taboo" from them.In other ways, I'd like the book. I'd like the list of references and I'd like to have the chapter guides to use as a check off sheet to provide structure and steps to move through trauma.I intend to buy the book too. It is an incredible resource.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Reality about norms, normalicy of sex and sexual terms and behaviors.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    NA


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately not. This is a lot of information to take it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have had sexual trauma, believed that sex is dirty or wrong, digest this book!
