suppressing painful issues by not rocking the boat

Initially I bought this book for a friend who struggles with complex ptsd due to a traumatic family history. Given her positive response I wound up getting a copy for myself. Initially I was drawn to the essays about thriving, especially the one Rev. Heller wrote about creative expression (I’m an artist). That essay caused me to think about what was blocking my creative function. It made me wonder about those parts of me that are sealed off. So I turned to the essay about the Wounded Artist and discovered that my retreat into safety had a lot to do with unresolved rejection and shame from my own family history. I’ve been protecting myself by minimizing risks…..suppressing painful issues by not rocking the boat. Rev. Heller’s emphasis on cultivating healthy narcissism really spoke to me. This pursuit was highlighted in the final essay the Call to Actualization & Authenticity. Actualizing potentials means facing the possibility of condemnation and loss. Avoiding pain may feel comfortable, but it doesn’t foster growth. This I know, but I needed to see this message repeated in print for it to sink in! A Clinician’s Journey from Complex Trauma to Thriving made me think about my personal trials and what’s holding me back. That alone makes this book special and personally meaningful to me. Although there is much in the book I don’t particularly relate to and know little about…psychopathology and Stockholm syndrome, ambient abuse, negative transference…. there is much here that speaks to me and opens me up to discovering more. This is a rich anthology of many layers and nuances. There seems to be something here for everyone. I recommend checking it out!
A Rich & Inspiring Resource for Clinicians and Individuals, Alike
21 August 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Heller's wide breadth of work in her anthology, documenting the process from rising from the ashes to flourishing, is a must read for any mental health practitioner or individual looking for actualization. The flow of the book purposefully walks the reader through practically addressing complex-PTSD and the impact of it all the way to living a life of thriving. Heller's keen insight into the power of the artist as an intrinsic healing force serves as an inspiring lens in which to not only cope with trauma, but to utilize it as a means of personal strength and resilience. Heller's clinical prowess, mixed with her interest in the arts, literature, fable & mythology and spirituality make this book a rich and intriguing way of looking at mental health and wellness. This is a great resource for every clinician to have sitting on their shelves.
Ms Heller is a wonderful writer and profound clinician

Rev Heller has a unique style and depth to her writing. I have read several books on trauma but Rev. Heller takes a unique approach integrating creativity, spirituality, philosophy, mythology, and psychology into understanding resiliency and complex trauma. She names the deep underworld of emotional development and sense-making for a survivor navigating relationships, coping, perception, and creativity. Her intelligence and extensive knowledge draws upon theological, intellectual, literature, and mythological themes along with psychology. Ms Heller is a wonderful writer and profound clinician. One will be draw in and inspired by her journey's insight and wisdom in A Clinicians Journey from Complex Trauma to Thriving. .
Everyone should read this!!

Early on came the leftist slant of the Rich’s not being taxed enough, minimum wage not being “enough.” Employees are traumatized because their workplace is a “dictatorship.” If somebody pays you to do a specific job, how is it traumatizing you to expect you to do it? The lowliest employee is expecting to be consulted on how companies are run? And traumatized if they aren’t?Following that was the call for stronger unions and government’s not allowing “irresponsible” employers to traumatize workers. Leftist propaganda.
