Reviews and Endorsements

‘This is a remarkable book. It represents an unparalleled broad and comprehensive description of and reflection on traumatised individuals and the treatment they need. The detailed presentation of clinical and process material brings the reader close to the complex inner and outer reality of severely traumatised patients in a way that gives deep insight into and opens new ways of understanding the horrible after-effects of human-made harm against other human beings. Franziska Henningsen demonstrates how past traumatising experiences are actualised in the transference and are thereby made accessible for psychoanalytic therapy.
Henningsen has given us one of the best guides until now for clinicians working with patients traumatised by adverse life-circumstances in different stages of life.’
- Professor Sverre Varvin, training analyst, Norwegian Psychoanalytical Society, and Oslo and Akershus University for Applied Sciences
