"You can sense the work invested in this book....the vast experience of the author with dealing with patients that have childhood traumas, and also her own traumatic childhood made her create a beautiful therapeutic outlet.... If you want to challenge your psyche and find more about yourself than this book is for you. Highly recommend it. " ~ Michaelides Andreas / Thirsty4Health
What makes A Clinician’s Journey an enjoyable read is the manner in which the writer touches issues that lie beyond the limits of her domain and yet have a bearing on our mental well-being. Rev. Heller judiciously uses the subjective and the objective by blending the clinician’s point of view with intensely personal experiences that do not appear out-of-place at all. In fact, those personal elements bring a delightfully sincere touch to what could have otherwise been a dry academic discourse on psychotherapy.
A Clinician's Journey from Complex Trauma to Thriving: Reflections on Abuse, C-PTSD and Reclamation is an anthology of articles by Rev. Sheri Heller, LCSW. Written for survivors and clinicians this collection was inspired by Rev. Heller's unrelenting struggle with recovering from complex ptsd rooted in systemic and generational child abuse, and her commitment to devoting her life to helping others similarly afflicted. Spanning the trajectory from abuse, complex trauma, addictions, the relational quest, recovery and treatment, and ultimately thriving creatively and spiritually, this assortment of writings offers a comprehensive assessment of the healing process and the triumph of reclamation.
An important thing to know when entering LCSW, Rev. Sheri Heller’s comprehensive and analytically deep book, A Clinician’s Journey from Complex Trauma to Thriving, is that this is not a self-help book; it does not prescribe a process for healing complex trauma, except to emphasize the necessity for professional, skillful, and compassionate clinical therapy. With that understood, this truly insightful and informative book – a collection of individual articles addressing specific forms of complex trauma and its consequences – does much more than just describe the often-debilitating symptoms presenting from a wide variety of personal and social traumas"
