Summary

Traumatic experiences leave a “living legacy” of effects that often persist for years and decades after the events are over. Historically, it has always been assumed that retelling the story of what happened would resolve these effects.

However, survivors report a different experience: Telling and re-telling the story of what happened to them often reactivates their trauma responses, overwhelming them rather than resolving the trauma. To transform traumatic experiences, survivors need to understand their symptoms and reactions as normal responses to abnormal events. They need ways to work with the symptoms that intrude on their daily activities, preventing a life beyond trauma.

Dr. Janina Fisher, international expert on trauma, has spent over 40 years working with survivors, helping them to navigate the healing journey. In Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma, she shows how the legacy of symptoms helped them survive and offers:

  • Step-by-step strategies that can be used on their own or in collaboration with a therapist
  • Simple diagrams that make sense of the confusing feelings and physical reactions survivors experience
  • Worksheets to practice the skills that bring relief and ultimately healing

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Insightful and pragmatic

Read this while going to therapy for ptsd. This was very useful to help structure the healing process. Narrator voice was clear and had a warmth to it.

A Must-Read!!!

I have been an Audible customer for many years and this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a review. If you have cPTSD, the audio and accompanying worksheets are excellent, straightforward resources. I wish you all well on your healing journeys!

Wow! Janina Knocks it out of the park once again!!

Absolutely love Janina's work in trauma and the accompanying therapeutic modalities she employs and mentions in this book. I highly recommend giving this a listen to all mental health professionals, victims/survivors of trauma (abused and otherwise) and family members/caretakers of those who e experience a traumatic past. Camille's voice is soothing, easy to understand and inflects at the perfect moments.
