"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

Motor vehicle accidents account for over 3 million injuries annually and are one of the most common traumas individuals experience. But the physical injuries are often less impactful in the long run than the severe emotional distress, flashbacks, and substantial impairment in work or family life. Studies of the general population have found that approximately 9% of people who survivor an accident develop Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. And yet, few people seek treatment immediately, mostly because they are not aware of the nature of their condition or that successful brief treatments are available.Written by the creators of an empirically supported cognitive-behavioral therapy program developed at The Center for Stress and Anxiety Disorders in Albany, this therapist guide includes all the information and materials necessary to implement a successful program for treating accident-related PTSD.

Written for those working to heal developmental trauma and seeking new tools for self-awareness and growth, this book focuses on conflicts surrounding the capacity for connection. Explaining that an impaired capacity for connection to self and to others and the ensuing diminished aliveness are the hidden dimensions that underlie most psychological and many physiological problems, clinicians Laurence Heller and Aline LaPierre introduce the NeuroAffective Relational Model� (NARM), a unified approach to developmental, attachment, and shock trauma that, while not ignoring a person's past, emphasizes working in the present moment. NARM is a somatically based psychotherapy that helps bring into awareness the parts of self that are disorganized and dysfunctional without making the regressed, dysfunctional elements the primary theme of the therapy. It emphasizes a person's strengths, capacities, resources, and resiliency and is a powerful tool for working with both nervous system regulation and distortions of identity such as low self-esteem, shame, and chronic self-judgment.

The crisp, bright morning in December 1977 started out like any other for author Connie Bachman. The junior at Big Walnut High School was making the twelve-mile drive to school when her car spun out of control on black ice. As Bachman's car skidded across the centerline, it struck another car and killed its twenty-nine-year-old driver, Patricia Marie Sloan. In the moving memoir Sliding: A Journey through Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder After a Fatal Car Crash, Bachman shares her twenty-five-year struggle with and recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Involvement in motor vehicle accidents (MVA) is a widespread experience for Americans. Moreover, a large-scale survey has shown that MVAs are the most frequent trauma for American males and second most frequent trauma for American females. Another large-scale survey found that MVAs were the single leading cause of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the general population. Yet very little is known about the assessment and treatment of road crash survivors, and few studies have looked at the psychological and psychosocial effects of surviving an accident. This book describes the details of a 5-yr study of MVA survivors in the Albany, New York area and discusses MVA related PTSD. This volume will appeal to a broad audience of practitioners, researchers, and physicians; attorneys who handle MVA survivor cases; and those interested in public safety issues.

In this timely second edition, written in a clear and lucid style and illustrated by a wealth of charts, guides, case studies, and clinical advice, the authors report on new, international research and provide updates on their own longstanding research protocols within the groundbreaking Albany MVA Project.

The screech of rubber against asphalt. And then the crash: a violent two-car collision resulting in a twisted mass of metal, plastic, and glass-and worse, the deaths of both drivers. Accident reconstruction is but one phase of road traffic fatality (RTF) cases. Even as police officers draw their last diagram, interview their last witness, and reconstruct their final scenario, a different team of investigators works diligently on solving another puzzle: determining how the victims actually died. Investigation of Road Traffic Fatalities: An Atlas covers the issues that face medical examiners and coroners in determining the nature and extent of RTF injuries as well as the cause, manner, and circumstances of death. Also ideal for medicolegal death investigators and law enforcement personnel who work with medical examiners and coroners during RTF investigations, this Atlas covers everything from "Typical road traffic fatality injuries" to "Injuries caused by safety/restraint devices" and "Autopsy and toxicology testing." For anyone involved in RTF probes, Investigation of Road Traffic Fatalities: An Atlas is essential reading.

As a therapist, Gretchen Schmelzer has watched far too many people quit during treatment for trauma recovery. They find it too difficult or frightening, or they decide that it's just too late for them. Schmelzer wrote Journey Through Trauma specifically for survivors to help them understand the terrain of the healing process and stay on the path.

She begins by laying out three important assumptions that support a survivor's healing: that it is possible, that it requires courage and that it cannot be done alone. Traumas that happen more than once - child abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, gang violence, war - are all relational traumas. They are traumas that happen inside a relationship and therefore must be healed inside a relationship, whether that relationship is with a therapist or within a group.

She then guides readers through the five phases that every survivor must negotiate: Preparation, Unintegration, Identification, Integration and Consolidation. She creates a mental map of the healing process that helps survivors recognize where they are in their journey to health, see where the hard parts occur and persevere in the process of getting well. Since the cycle of healing repeated trauma is not linear, the survivor comes to understand that circling back around to a previous stage actually means progress as well as facing new challenges.

Ultimately, the healing journey is one of trust, as survivors come to trust their capacity to rely on help from others and to trust themselves and the work they have done.
