Unbroken: The Trauma Response Is Never Wrong
Too often, we think of trauma as that which breaks our spirit. Instead, says Dr. MaryCatherine McDonald, the trauma response proves our spirit cannot be broken. Sharing the latest research and self-care tools, this trauma expert's radical reframing will change how you understand trauma—and open up a profound new approach for healing.
A profound new approach to healing trauma, grounded in a radical reframing of how we understand this nearly universal experience
For centuries, we’ve been taught that being traumatized means we are somehow broken—and that trauma only happens to people who are too fragile or flawed to deal with hardship. But as a researcher, teacher, and survivor, Dr. MaryCatherine McDonald has learned that the only thing broken is our society’s understanding of trauma. “The body’s trauma response is designed to save our lives—and it does,” she says. “It’s not a sign of weakness, but of our function, strength, and amazing resilience.”
With Unbroken: The Trauma Response Is Never Wrong, Dr. McDonald overturns the misconceptions about trauma with the latest evidence from neuroscience and psychology—and shares tested practices and tools to help you work with your body’s coping mechanisms to accelerate healing. Here, you’ll explore:
- What is trauma? The latest science that undoes the stigmas of shame, blame, and humiliation
- Moral injury—having our basic sense of how the world should work overturned
- The truth about triggers—what they really are and how they can guide the healing journey
- Traumatic patterns—new findings to help break free from recurring habits and toxic dynamics
- Why we can always rewrite our inner narratives, no matter how much time has passed
- Finding a “relational home” for trauma—how we can help each other return to wholeness
