Book Description

"The Mandala Book" is a visual symphony, filled with 500 stunning mandalic images from nature and civilization. As an archetypal symbol of wholeness, mandalas are replicated on a grand scale in both human culture and the natural universe. Drawing from history, science, religion and art, Lori Bailey Cunningham conducts a journey that spans from prehistoric petroglyphs to Carl Jung, from tiny particles of matter to entire galaxies. She explains the concepts of mandalas and patterns clearly and simply, showing how they are at the root of life intervention, and social change in the wake of violence. Sources and Expressions of Resiliency in Trauma Survivors provides practicing clinicians with new insights into the need for a full continuum of resources for traumatized groups, including: crisis response, individual psychotherapy and group treatment, victim advocacy, community intervention and social change.The book also helps clinicians and researchers become more familiar with theory-driven tools for use in psychological assessment, case formulation, treatment planning and outcome research, as well as for assessing resiliency in diverse groups of treated and untreated trauma survivors, identifying sources of risk and expression of resiliency; and examining how trauma survivors struggle to draw meaning from their experiences. Topics examined in Sources and Expressions of Resiliency in Trauma Survivors include: an ecological understanding of trauma, recovery, and resilience multidimensional trauma recovery and resiliency assessment tools first-person narratives of trauma survivors societal prejudice and psychological trauma expressions of resilience among incarcerated women, victims of childhood sexual abuse, Central American victims of war and political violence, sexually abused adolescent girls in Canadian child protective services, and other populations group therapy individual and social advocacy the history of the Community Crisis Response Team (CCRT) of the Victims of Violence Program and much more.Sources and Expressions of Resiliency in Trauma Survivors is an important professional and academic resource for clinical practitioners, community psychologists, public health practitioners, grass roots community activists, and trauma researchers.
