DescriptionHow do survivors of child abuse, bullying, chronic oppression and discrimination, and other developmental traumas adapt to such unimaginable situations? It is taken for granted that experiences such as hearing voices, altered states of consciousness, dissociative states, lack of trust, and intense emotions are inherently problematic. But what does the evidence actually show? And how much do we still need to learn?

About the Author
Noël Hunter is a clinical psychologist working in private practice in New York City, USA. Her work focuses on the link between trauma and altered states, human rights, and alternative approaches to healing.
"Trauma and Madness in Mental Health Services offers a great deal of practical help for both practitioners and for those in emotional turmoil. In very concrete terms, Hunter offers chapters on what is helpful and what is not." (Bruce E. Levine, counterpunch.org, July 18, 2018) "Noel Hunter's remarkable book sheds light on a new discourse around human suffering, while tying into a long history of approaches that have vacillated between attempts at categorization and an overarching view of distress on a continuum. ... 'Madness and Trauma' is an auspicious paragon for such an ambitious project, and thus a must-read for anyone looking for a way forward in this complex field." (Peter Stastny, Psychosis, Vol. 10 (04), 2018)
