Description - Splintered Reflections by Jean Goodwin

A multifaceted exploration of the dynamics of posttraumatic body symptoms and a clinically sophisticated presentation of new therapy techniques by an internationally acclaimed roster of trauma experts.. In overwhelming trauma, when words fail, it is the body that begins to speak. How can clinicians listen to the body and understand its messages? This book is both a detailed review of the body symptoms and body image distortions found after trauma and a textbook of psychotherapy techniques to repair broken metaphors about the body so that the body-self and its functioning can be restored. Multiple theoretical perspectivesFreudian psychoanalytic theory, attachment theory, trauma theoryare synthesized to shape an interlocking framework within which the therapist can listen and stay with the messages from the patients body. The reader is guided by detailed clinical examples drawn from an international group of trauma therapists that includes Barry Cohen, Richard Kluft, Bruce Perry, Valerie Sinason and Onno van der Hart.
