Healing Crisis and Trauma with Body, Mind, and Spirit

By Barbara Rubin Wainrib | Go to book overview

Preface

We live in a changed world, a world where the enemy is no longer in uniform on the other side of a trench. There is no longer an identified “war zone” and the “enemy” may be the innocent-looking person standing next to us. Clear boundaries and an assumption of safety no longer exist.

The enemy is in offices, in peaceful-looking aircraft that suddenly destroy whole buildings and thousands of innocent lives; the enemy is on buses and subways at rush hour. We can no longer differentiate between counselors and therapists, or crisis and trauma victims because all of us are potential victims of the latter and need the skills of the former. In addition, emerging changes in our weather system have turned our beloved “Mother Nature” into a terrifying villain. We simply can no longer know when, where, or how trauma will present itself, or when we may be called upon to help a myriad of innocent victims.

This book is written for those persons in the “helping professions.” It is also written for those who have a sufficient understanding of psychology and a sufficient awareness of our current world and who want to gain some knowledge about being helpful. We now know that learning new skills to address the injuries incurred by sudden trauma and unpredictable lives is essential. For many years, I have been doing research about trauma. In addition to applying this research in my own practice, I have been teaching and supervising other therapists, as well as teaching graduate students at McGill University and post-graduates around the continent. These experiences have not only reinforced the importance of knowing theory, but of teaching it in hands-on fashion.

This book offers the educator and the practitioner training methods, exercises, and intervention techniques applicable to the gamut of experiences that we currently encounter. It also will introduce readers to newer concepts and their applications, such as role play, spirituality, the role of animals in healing, and the concept of forgiveness. Throughout the book,
