The Effects of Childhood Trauma on Adult Perception and Worldview was an informative work on the minds of those who have been been traumatized. It examined many aspects of trauma and the relationship on the individual, their mindsets, perceptions, and overall responses to the traumatic event.

It is an essential read if you had a troubled childhood and are looking for a structured way to make sense of...more

This is an extremely helpful academic research text, largely directed at psychological and other clinicians who will be diagnosing and treating traumas incurred in childhood. The book has clarified a lot for me as a person.

The book provides insights into the complexities of the causations of childhood traumatic disorders. The research examines several participants who have been flooded by various types of traumatic experiences. It also examines the varying forces that inflict psychological injur...more

I've yet to read Dr. Brown's book on trauma, but having previously consumed his book "Waiting to Live" I have no doubt that this will prove a masterpiece. I have worked for years with individuals who have had remarkable traumatic experiences.
