Go beyond the pain and fear of sexual abuse to heal the trauma Childhood sexual abuse (CSA) can be a physically and emotionally painful soul-shattering experience that can traumatize a person for a lifetime. The Wall of Fear: Crossing the Wall from Trauma to Recovery from Childhood Sexual Abuse is a unique exploration of the subjective experiences of both client and therapist as they together travel the path to recovery. Therapists get a clear illustration of the therapy process while CSA survivors are offered a gauge with which to judge their own progress toward recovery. New therapeutic concepts are clearly presented and extensively discussed while sensitively charting the experiences of clients on the journey toward healing. As Winston Churchill once said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” The Wall of Fear charts the arduous progress of a survivor from the initial understanding that they need help and guidance, to choosing the correct therapist, to the emotional roadblocks most clients face on their own personal recovery from the hell of CSA. The authors team up to courageously provide readers with a comprehensive and candid portrait of their experiences of CSA therapy while demonstrating the approaches which effectively enhance healing. Features include schematic drawings of the stages of therapy, the client’s own diary from her youth through her therapy in adulthood, client drawings illustrating progress in therapy, and effective art exercises that can be used at the beginning of therapy. The text includes extensive references, useful appendixes, and a helpful glossary of terms for the layperson. Topics in The Wall of Fear include: the nature of sexual trauma (the new concept of the World of Trauma) growing up traumatized—and its effect on friendships, sexual development, dating, and mate selection couples’ relationships and sexuality selecting a therapist the new concept of The Wall of Fear closure coping with the therapy process parenting by CSA survivors and the impact on the next generation the subjective experiences of both therapist and CSA survivor The Wall of Fear stands as a testament that no matter what sexual trauma a person may endure, there is hope for recovery. This is insightful, crucial reading for survivors of CSA and therapists at all levels of expertise.

An inside look at the reasons Catholic priests and nuns commit sexual abuse Sexual Abuse and the Culture of Catholicismdigs beneath the public scandals to explore the underlying causes of sexual abuse by priests and nuns from the unique perspective of an abuse victim/survivor who is an experienced mental health practitioner and social science researcher. This powerful book includes the author's personal account of sexual abuse by a nun and her years of struggle to recover. Passionate but scholarly and objective, the book advocates the need for healing dialogue, empirical research, and informed prevention strategies to bring a meaningful resolution to the crisis of sexual abuse in the church. Popular explanations for the reasons behind the crisis have included issues related to celibacy, homosexuality, the power structure of the church, and poor seminary screening practices. But none of these theories are supported by research nor can they explain why Catholic priests and nuns may be more likely to abuse children that other adults in positions of trust. Sexual Abuse and the Culture of Catholicismuses a complex, systemic approach to draw parallels between the church as a human system and a family that has experienced incest, presenting a model for a sexual trauma cycle in the church based on systemic sexual shame passed down through the beliefs and practices of Catholicism. Sexual Abuse and the Culture of Catholicismexamines: the prevalence and characteristics of sexual abuse by Catholic priests and nuns compared to sex offenders in the general population celibacy, homosexuality, and the power structure of the church as contributing factors in the sexual abuse crisis an analogy of the church as a family in which incest occurs the effects and causes of sexual offending from one generation to the next how current research on sexual offending applies to sexual abuse by priests and nuns healing and empowerment for those affected by religious-based sexual trauma reform and renewal within the Catholic Church and much more Sexual Abuse and the Culture of Catholicismis a unique and important resource for clergy, religious order, and lay leaders in the Catholic Church and other Christian denominations; social science researchers; social workers and mental health professionals; lay and religious members of the Catholic Church; and anyone recovering from religious-based sexual trauma.

Noberreaktive Patienten stellen Therapeuten vor дhnlich groяe Herausforderungen wie die Klienten sie selbst erleben. Carolyn Daitch erlдutert mit diesem Buch, welche Grьnde und Auswirkungen mangelnde Affektkontrolle im Leben der Patienten hat und was hypnotherapeutische Interventionen in diesem Zusammenhang bewirken kцnnen. Die Autorin erklдrt zunдchst den neuropsychologischen Zusammenhang von Emotionen und Noberreaktivitдt und stellt darauf 31 Tools vor, die von Therapeuten unterschiedlicher Schulen ergдnzend zur jeweiligen Therapie eingesetzt werden kцnnen. Der Zugang zur Affektregulation erfolgt zum einen auf der Ebene dieser Tools und zum anderen auf der Stцrungsebene. Daitch demonstriert die Anwendung und Kombination der Tools bei Angst- und Zwangsstцrungen, posttraumatischen Belastungsstцrungen und unterschiedlichen Beziehungsproblemen (u. a. zwischen Paaren, Kollegen, Freunden, Eltern und ihren Kindern). Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Verstдrkung positiver Verhaltensweisen (z. B. Selbstsicherheit, Empathie, positive Erwartungen, positive Affekte). Mit seinem lцsungs- und ьbungsorientierten Aufbau und seiner klaren und prдzisen Sprache ist das Buch sowohl fьr Therapeuten ohne Hypnosekenntnisse geeignet wie auch fьr Hypnotherapeuten in Ausbildung und Praxis. "Das Buch ist eine hervorragende Quelle zur hypnotherapeutischen Affektregulation, in dieser Form eine einmalige Zusammenstellung. Die Tools kцnnen mit Gewinn in verschiedenen Therapieformen eingesetzt werden. Die Autorin hat zu Recht den Arthur Shapiro Award der Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH) fьr dieses Buch erhalten. Sehr empfehlenswert!" Dr. Juliana Matt, Berlin
