The Awakening Storm
Decades of Psychotherapy in One Book.
The Awakening Storm: In this book, Anne takes the reader through her experiences with Hurricane Katrina and the Levee Disaster of New Orleans. Throughout the story, she teaches the regressive and dehumanizing impacts of trauma on human beings. For example, when trauma has been chronic and too much for a human soul to bear, the person becomes stuck in an inhuman stage of psychological development. We have such people in our families or communities, but we’re not recognizing them as such, so they don’t get the treatment they need to recover. And they contribute to a society that is becoming increasingly insensitive to the human voice and human need, such as our need to psychologically mature. This book gives many practical tips for recognizing and dealing with traumatized people. It makes a great gift for anyone in the field of health and healing or who aspires to psychological maturation themselves.
