"Questions of countertransference are nowhere more painful, or more important, than in work with victims of extreme trauma. Wilson and Lindy bring their own vast experience in this area, as well as that of a number of accomplished colleagues, to produce a volume of extraordinary value. The writing throughout combines rigor and compassion. Therapist and students of trauma in general will find in this book models for sensitive clinical practice informed by skillfully woven theory." --Robert Jay Lifton, M.D., Author of The Protean Self, The Nazi Doctors, and The Broken Connection
"Every therapist who treats the survivor of trauma, every clinician who encounters cruelty, every scholar who studies stress syndromes will value this volume from Wilson and Lindy. Here are assembled the personal revelations, the organizing concepts, the dilemmas and insights of experts--the world leaders of the modern age of traumatic stress studies. They ask us to examine ourselves as we engage in the healing process and they make the self-scrutiny interesting." --Frank M. Ochberg, M.D., Adjunct Professor, Psychiatry, Criminal Justice; Journalism, Michigan State University
"Particularly useful for gaining an appreciation of the unique stresses on the professional's empathic relationship with traumatized individuals. The book could easily serve as a text for teaching students and as a stimulus for ongoing case supervision and peer group discussion.... There is not a chapter here that I did not learn something from. I would highly recommend it to those doing psychotherapy or working in any other way with traumatized individuals." --Linda Gay Peterson, M.D.
From the Back Cover
It is now widely recognized that mental health professionals who work with trauma victims are themselves at risk for powerful countertransference reactions (CTRs), vicarious victimization, and stress-related "burnout". This volume is the first book in the field of traumatic stress studies to systematically examine the unique role of countertransference processes in psychotherapy outcome. Emphasizing the need for carefully deliberated action, this volume offers vital new insights into the victim-healer relationship and presents detailed techniques to promote awareness of affective reactions for anyone working with sufferers of PTSD and its comorbid conditions such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. Rich with explicit suggestions for providing compassionate and intelligent care, this insightful volume is ideal for psychotherapists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals working with people suffering from PTSD. Similarly, Countertransference in the Treatment of PTSD is a valuable classroom text for courses dealing with the treatment of trauma victims and its implications for psychotherapists.
