    Judith Lewis Herman's volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually. Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism.

    Story
    Where does Trauma and Recovery rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in a different category from recreational reading. It's not meant to be "light reading" but more of a textbook of some density.


    What did you like best about this story?

    this is less of a story and more of an instruction manual to set the historical context of our understanding of trauma and how we apply this learning


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I had no problems with the narration. Frankly, too much animation and inflection would have seemed contrived. This isn't a topic that warrants "theatre". Those of us working in the field of trauma care get enough DRAMA; we don't need it manufactured for us.


    Any additional comments?

    I serve survivors of domestic human trafficking in a long-term residential setting. For this population, mostly dealing with complex trauma, this is a vital sourcebook.
