Transcending trauma : survival, resilience and clinical implications in survivor families / Bea Hollander-Goldfein, Nancy Isserman, Jennifer Goldenberg.

Publication | Library Call Number: RC451.4.H62 H64 2012

"The Transcending Trauma Project (TTP), begun in 1991, is a large qualitative research endeavor based on 275 comprehensive life interviews of survivors of the Nazi Holocaust, their children, and their grandchildren. Using this research as a base, Transcending Trauma presents an integrated model of coping and adaptation after trauma that incorporates the best of recent work in the field with the expanded insights offered by Holocaust survivors. In the book's vignettes, interview transcripts, and audio excerpts, survivors of a broad range of traumas will recognize their own challenges, and mental health professionals will gain invaluable insight into the dominant themes of Holocaust survivors' experiences and of trauma survivors' experiences more generally. The study of lives conducted by TTP has illuminated universal aspects of the recovery from trauma, and Transcending Trauma makes a vital contribution to our understanding of how survivors find meaning after traumatic events"--Provided by publisher.
