Reviews

"This Harvard-trained psychologist has some shrewd observations, including the reminder that "repeated trauma is about both what did happen and what didn't happen" (in other words, "the normal developmental growth that would have taken place during the years that the trauma was occurring.")"
--The New York Times

"With vast personal and professional experience, Gretchen Schmeltzer provides a thoughtful, compassionate trail guide for trauma survivors in recovery. A keen scholar and talented clinician with broad individual and systems "know-how," she gives us a book unique in helping health workers, survivors and families to understand not only the different types of trauma, but, more importantly, the diversity in experiences and ways of coping. Must reading!"
--Barbara F. Okun, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Northeastern University

"This is a one of the most helpful and hopeful books I have read during my own journey of healing trauma. Gretchen Schmelzer gives us a clear road map and gentle encouragement to stay on path and do the hard, but necessary, work to integrate the past so we can embrace the future."
--Lea Waters, Ph.D., Psychologist and President of the International Positive Psychology Association and author of The Strength Switch
