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.

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.
