From Trauma to Healing: A Social Worker's Guide for Working With Survivors is the next significant publication on trauma in the field of social work. Since September 11 and Hurricane Katrina, social workers have come together increasingly to consider how traumatic events impact practice. From Trauma to Healing is designed to provide direction in this process, supporting both the field's movement towards evidence-based practice and social workers' growing need to be equipped to work with trauma. It does so in the practical-guide format already proven to be compelling to social work students, educators, and practitioners, providing case examples, and addressing social workers' unique ecological approach.
This book brings to our attention something we have either forgotten or perhaps never even noticed - that words of blessing spoken over us can be life-changing.
This book is for anyone who has ever been victimized (directly or indirectly) and is in need of spiritual healing but more specifically how victims of heinous crimes such as sexual assault and rape, emotional and physical abuse, murder (homicide and school shootings) and innocent bystander deaths (car accidents); how they can learn to forgive those deemed unforgivable. The bottom line is that you do not ever need to forgive those who hurt you or your loved ones in order to receive God's unconditional love and Jesus Christ's supernatural healing. In this book, the author openly talks about his own spiritual journey from Judaism to Christianity, and how he was able to heal from two adult sexual assaults and forgive those deemed unforgivable, through Christ. Whether you do not know who God or Christ is; whether you have turned away from God or Christ; or whether you wish to know who they are, this book is for you.
