Trauma and Recovery

Front Cover
This publication looks at restoring connections: between the public and private worlds; between individuals and communities; and between men and women.

She identifies a fresh diagnostic category for those suffering from hidden traumas, and proposes a recovery programme which favours a process of reintegration.
