What a gift! Survivors will cherish this book, which is the best I’ve seen on the subject in years. It is reassuring, practical, thorough, accurate, and beautifully written. But most importantly, it is filled with hope. Healing from Trauma is going to the top of Sidran’s recommended reading list.
—Esther Giller, M.A., President, Sidran Traumatic Stress Institute
It takes a special kind of talent to make complex information clear and useable without talking down to a reader, and Jasmin Cori has pulled this off in spades. Her discussion of how to interpret symptoms, find a good therapist, and explore various therapies without inviting reactivation and flooding is a tour de force of sensitivity, insider knowledge, brevity and clarity. This goes on my ‘Highly Recommended’ list immediately!
—Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, author of Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series
At last, someone wrote the book that trauma survivors want and need! A marvel of intelligence, insight and compassion….Cori seamlessly melds the strength of a survivor/thriver, the skill of a clinician, and the clarity of a gifted writer.

I enthusiastically recommend Jasmin Cori’s clear and accessible book to all trauma survivors on the road to recovery. She is a highly qualified tour guide who can gracefully lead you through the challenges and rewards of this critically important journey. You will benefit from her own in depth experiences as well as from her extensive research integrating practical healing modalities.

Healing from Trauma is a concise, easy-to-read, broad encompassing guide through the brutal journey of recovery. If only this superb guide had been available to me years ago, I would have realized my nightmare was a normal part of the healing process.

Demystifying and empowering, Healing from Trauma contains a multitude of diverse resources for those in need. In a time when many seem to complicate the healing process, Jasmin Cori makes it accessible to all. I recommend this book, particularly for those in the process of recovery.

Written by a psychotherapist who is also a trauma survivor, Jasmin Cori’s book is the best hands-on manual I know of for people wanting to examine their trauma carefully from all angles and heal from it. Healing from Trauma is courageous and user-friendly. It makes the face of trauma less frightening to the sufferers themselves and to those who love them. I plan to recommend this book to patients.
—Demaris S. Wehr, PhD, psychotherapist, author of Jung and Feminism
Healing from Trauma makes a welcome contribution to victims of trauma from a woman who knows plenty about it from both chairs, as client and as therapist. The well-edited, digestible theory sections will help readers understand their most confounding symptoms and make sense of the psychological and biological impacts of traumatic incidents. Guidance for finding professional help as well as numerous, practical ideas for self-help, is full of common sense. The variety of therapy options effectively (and refreshingly) dispels the popular belief that there is only one way to deal with trauma. If you or a loved one suffers from past or recent trauma, Healing from Trauma should be a part of your over-all treatment plan.
—Babette Rothschild, MSW, LCSW, author of The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment
This well-written reader-friendly book provides a clear and compassionate overview of the emotional, physical, spiritual, and societal aspects of trauma, as well as helpful suggestions regarding the recovery process.
—Aphrodite Matsakis, PhD, author of I Can’t Get Over It: A Handbook for Trauma Survivors and Trust after Trauma
A valuable book for anyone recovering from trauma, or helping others to recover. Cori’s warmth, humor and wisdom skillfully guide the reader to discover how personal growth and even spiritual awakening can emerge from the most shattering events of our lives.
—Judith Blackstone, PhD, transpersonal psychotherapist and author of The Empathic Ground, Living Intimately, and The Enlightenment Process
Compassionate and comforting, Healing from Trauma offers insights into the subtleties of trauma’s effects that are overshadowed by the more technical definitions in other resources. Cori humanizes the traditional “trauma speak” and helps the reader to recognize symptoms through examples and her own experience. She describes, for the first time, recognizable milestones in the healing of trauma, giving realistic hope that a better tomorrow really does exist.
