Product description

Review

 "Communicating Trauma is an amazing book about traumatized children and the unique ways they express their suffering. Most importantly, it is a roadmap for healing. Written with sensitivity, care, understanding and clinical wisdom, this gem of a book is clear, accessible, and includes poignant and instructive case examples. Both professionals and parents will find invaluable help here."

―Onno Van der Hart, PhD, professor emeritus of psychopathology of chronic traumatization at Utrecht University in the Netherlands

"Communicating Trauma is essential reading for any clinician who wants to understand the wealth of meta-information and emotion banished to the shallow graves of childhood trauma. With her typical humility and incisive intellect, Yehuda elegantly spells out how the banal viciousness of early traumatic experience leaves children, adults, and psychotherapists with the burden of deciphering what is being said, sometimes without ever opening a shuttered mouth. Communicating Trauma is an able guide to creative approaches in understanding and relieving the aftereffects of both inadvertent developmental and, more sadly, ‘typical’ traumatic experience."

―Richard A. Chefetz, MD, author of Intensive Psychotherapy for Persistent Dissociative Processes: The Fear of Feeling Real

"Communicating Trauma’s most powerful contribution resides in Yehuda’s skill in providing the reader with an encyclopedic panorama of powerful and poignant vignettes that drive her messages home with clarity, and at times with unsettling force. While the book seems to be written for those who provide a wide array of services and interventions for traumatized children, I strongly recommend it as well for clinicians like me, who treat adults who suffered childhood misfortune and mistreatment. For me, reading Communicating Trauma was almost like entering a time machine and seeing my patients decades before I encountered them in my consulting room. It provided me with a profoundly eye-opening and enlightening experience I wish had been available to me when I began my work with traumatized adults."

―Richard P. Kluft, MD, PhD, clinical professor of psychiatry at Temple University School of Medicine and faculty member at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia

"Na’ama Yehuda absolutely gets it―the impact of trauma on children―and she weaves it together with captivating clinical vignettes, clear explanations of the baffling, complex behaviors that these children exhibit, and useful practices. Communicating Trauma will serve as an inspiring guide to a wide range of professionals and caregivers who work with children. Yehuda writes with deep compassion and understanding of children, enabling us to decipher their behavior and sometimes disguised communication with understanding and attunement."

―Bethany Brand, PhD, professor of psychology and Martha E. Mitten Endowed Professor at Towson University in Maryland
