SPIRITUALITY AND TRAUMA: THE LINK THAT MAY BE OVERLOOKED
There are many ways to help survivors, from medication to visualization to just being there. But for those who have experienced trauma, many of these approaches may be missing the boat when it comes to helping survivors make sense of their pain.
A new book, “Trauma, Meaning, and Spirituality: Translating Research into Clinical Practice,” may offer a different perspective.
Authors Crystal Park, PhD, and Joseph Currier, PhD, say that there is a relationship between trauma and spirituality that can help not only with assessment of survivors, but also with treatment. Park, with the University of Connecticut Department of Psychology, has done extensive research on the multiple aspects of coping with stressful events, and what brings meaning to those events for survivors. Currier is Assistant Professor and Director of Clinical Training in the Combined Clinical & Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of South Alabama. His research focuses on psychological, spiritual/existential, and physical health consequences of military trauma and other stressful life events.
