About the Author
Rivka Edery, L.M.S.W. is a resident of Brooklyn, New York since 1994, and a native of Montreal, Canada. She has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Social Science and a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service. She is a licensed social worker and a first time author specializing in trauma recovery and spirituality. She has been active in the treatment and recovery field for over sixteen years. Since 2009, she has been working as a clinical social worker assisting clients who are recovering from trauma-related disorders. She has treated numerous clients and has talked with hundreds of recovering addicts. She is currently employed as a social work supervisor of a large residential drug treatment program. As her career was advancing, Rivka wondered if the ancient spiritual principals of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous can be applied to the healing of trauma. One day, she was suddenly inspired with an idea that had a firm hold on her and has not let go since. It combined the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous that saved her life, with life problems that are a result of surviving traumatic experiences. The result is a unique approach for trauma survivors who are seeking a combined spiritual and clinical approach to their personal effects of surviving trauma.

Edery's text is replete with inspirational messages, wise caveats and cautionary remarks, encouragement, and exercises designed to help the individual work through the twelve steps with rigor and flexibility. It is, as such a program must be in order to be successful, infused with not only a spiritual but a specifically theistic perspective, yet one that transcends rigid boundaries and definitions of the God-image. Her sharing of personal stories, including her own, as well as her clearly expressed personal warmth and sincerity (healing elements in themselves), make her guide to the twelve steps extraordinarily "reader-friendly," and also compelling. She speaks to the reader directly, heart-to-heart.
In my view, "Trauma and Transformation" is destined to become a classic in Twelve-Step literature. It is an inspired guide both for those engaged in trauma therapy as clients as well as for those who are their guides and mentors.

Rivka expressed many of the needs of people in recovery in a unique and comprehensive way. I was intrigued by the idea that co dependents can channel a degree of their loving feelings to themselves and not just to others. She helps readers work through the barriers and resistances of seeing their faults and letting themselves receive love from a higher power and from people in their lives. The book has a natural flow as you work through the exercises and tells you why you need to build from the previous steps to get to the next step.Rivka and the people she has helped are living proof that the twelve steps are not just for recovery from addictions.
