Beyond Trauma: A Healing Journey for Women

"This beautiful and sensitive work will go a long way to help women struggling with trauma and addiction. There's a strong need to integrate treatment for these issues, which co-occur tragically for so many. Dr. Covington's approach attends to key themes, including power, violence, self-soothing, response to trauma, the mind-body connection, and feelings. Women who receive this treatment, and the clinicians who work with them, will likely find it a life-changing experience that can open a new path. Dr. Covington's extraordinary compassion and support are a gift."
