My chapter in this very inspirational book of several therapists work with their clients gives a clear and insightful picture of the journey that a person who has suffered severe childhood trauma could be on. While not all my clients have experienced exactly what I describe in this chapter, you will be able to understand some of the many challenges a person may have and how to help overcome them.
