Everywhere and constantly human beings are subject to terrible violence--be it natural or manmade. It has happened in New Orleans, New York, India, Iraq, Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, Ivory Coast. But long after the levees have been reconstructed, after the war criminals have been brought to justice, the question remains--can people heal, and if so, how?   Richard Mollica has spent more than thirty years helping victims of trauma. Now he draws from hundreds of inter­views, years of research, and his counseling experience to show us a new way of helping people overcome their pain. The key to this? People have an inherent ability to heal them­selves. And the lessons we can learn from the survivors of such trials and extreme situations can even teach us how to cope better with everyday life.

 Here is a passionate, humanitarian voice of hope in a cruel and violent world, telling us all we can do more than survive--we can find strength and healing no matter what we have experienced.
