Trauma, Culture, and Metaphor by John P. Wilson
Book DescriptionIn Trauma, Culture, and Metaphor, John Wilson and Jacob Lindy explore the language of both individual and collective trauma in an era dominated by globalization and interconnectedness. Through lucid, careful discussion, this important book builds a bridge between the etymology of trauma-related terms commonly used in Western cultures and those of other cultures, such as the Burundi-Rwandan ihahamuka. It also provides the clinician with a framework for working with trauma survivors using a cross-cultural vocabulary-one often based in metaphor-to fully address the experienced trauma and to begin work on reconnection and self-reinvention.
