In these personal reflections on his thirty years of clinical work with victims of genocide, torture, and abuse in the United States, Cambodia, Bosnia, and other parts of the world, Richard Mollica describes the surprising capacity of traumatized people to heal themselves. Here is how Neil Boothby, Director of the Program on Forced Migration and Health at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, describes the book: "Mollica provides a wealth of ethnographic and clinical evidence that suggests the human capacity to heal is innate--that the 'survival instinct' extends beyond the physical to include the psychological as well. He enables us to see how recovery from 'traumatic life events' needs to be viewed primarily as a 'mystery' to be listened to and explored, rather than solely as a 'problem' to be identified and solved. Healing involves a quest for meaning--with all of its emotional, cultural, religious, spiritual and existential attendants--even when bio-chemical reactions are also operative." Healing Invisible Wounds reveals how trauma survivors, through the telling of their stories, teach all of us how to deal with the tragic events of everyday life. Mollica's important discovery that humiliation--an instrument of violence that also leads to anger and despair--can be transformed through his therapeutic project into solace and redemption is a remarkable new contribution to survivors and clinicians. This book reveals how in every society we have to move away from viewing trauma survivors as "broken people" and "outcasts" to seeing them as courageous people actively contributing to larger social goals. When violence occurs, there is damage not only to individuals but to entire societies, and to the world. Through the journey of self-healing that survivors make, they enable the rest of us not only as individuals but as entire communities to recover from injury in a violent world.

Abstract: The purpose of this project was to create a program, identify funding sources, and write a grant proposal to fund a mental health and family services program for female veterans suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at Veterans Village of San Diego, Oceanside. A comprehensive review of the literature allowed the writer to identify the main causes of PTSD (Military Sexual Trauma, combat exposure, and combat related Traumatic Brain Injury), and dire consequences of this mental disorder among women returning from the military service (substance misuse, suicidal attempts and/or ideation and family problems). This writer also found effective interventions, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy, for the treatment of PTSD among the veteran population. The proposed program is aimed at improving the mental health functioning of women veterans and at helping them to transition from military servicemembers to mothers and/or partners. The program includes individual counseling for veterans, conjoint family therapy, a PTSD psychoeducational group for children and partners, and case management services. Health Net, Inc. Corporate Giving Program was selected as a potential funding source for this program. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not requirements for completion of this project.

Though emotional pain constitutes an inevitable part of life, not only can it be healed, it can be the soil out of which we grow into greater wholeness and wellbeing. This book arose not simply out of the author's work with others but out of lessons learned as he worked his way to healing and forgiveness associated with his own emotional wounds as well. In helpful, practical language that is filled with real-life examples, Healing Emotional Wounds examines the inner course of events that predictably follows experiences of emotional wounding. This includes a discussion of the ways in which we attempt to cope with hurt, focusing on common but counterproductive coping strategies that actually impede healing. It then examines in detail the emotional, intellectual, and volitional tasks that are involved in healing emotional wounds, each presenting concrete steps that we can take to help ourselves and others experience healing and gain freedom from bondage to our wounds. Such freedom does not involve escape from unpleasant experiences or difficult circumstances, but release from their tyrannizing inner consequences. This also provides the possibility of living a more fulfilling and significant life because of these experiences.
