    Judith Herman, M.D., one of this country’s leading experts on trauma and abuse, is associate clinical professor of psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School, and director of training at the Victims of Violence Program at Cambridge Hospital. She is also a founding member of the Women’s Mental Health Collective in Massachusetts.
    When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a groundbreaking work. In the intervening years, Herman’s volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. In a new afterword, Herman chronicles the incredible response the book has elicited and explains how the issues surrounding the topic have shifted within the clinical community and the culture at large.Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually. Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism. The book puts individual experience in a broader political frame, arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Meticulously documented and frequently using the victims’ own words as well as those from classic literary works and prison diaries, Trauma and Recovery is a powerful work that will continue to profoundly impact our thinking.

    • A Landmark Book

      As a social work student this was really the one book that completely changed the way I understood "mental illness." This book is essential to anyone in the field, old and new-- it will revolutionize the way you think. The NY Times review likens its importance to that of Freud and I definitely agree, though Herman's theories make a heck of a lot more sense.

    • This book is beyond outstanding. Dr. Herman's book reads like a textbook dealing with Trauma. This book should be required reading in U.S. colleges. I know a few psychiatrists who should read this book as well.
