Moving into a New Reality! Victim trauma has a powerful effect on people who experience it. According to our personality and learned coping mechanisms, we respond in a multitude of ways to the pain and suffering trauma produces. * Some people run away, and even when the danger is past, they don't stop running. * Others fight back, and never stop fighting. They live their life in a constant state of vigilance, looking for the proverbial shoe to drop. * Others freeze. Their emotions are numbed to the reality of their experiences, locking them into an awkward existence that denies the full measure of their pain but never really frees them from it. If this sounds like you or someone you know, you need this book! It is time to rise above the pain of a hurtful past and gain power over it. It's time to move into a new reality!
