Shifting Our Relationship with Trauma is about cutting ties with trauma. As the ﬁrst installment in the Choosing New Ways Forward series, Elizabeth Jo refers to trauma as elationship we have built on fear as a means of survival. These relationships ﬁll us with anxiety, cripple us with fear, and steal our joy and attention. This guide aims to help us to break down the walls that encircle us with threats. First, Jo relates the dark relationship she shared with her parents and her childhood experiences that led to trauma. She then contrasts these relationships with those she had with her grandmother, supportive friends, and doctors, who helped her eliminate the threat of trauma in her adult life.
Shifting Our Relationship with Trauma is an engaging guide to help you reﬂect on your view of trauma. Does it have a hold on you? Is it hindering your progress? Elizabeth Jo helps us understand how trauma operates and how to suppress its effects. She uses simple examples to represent her concepts, like the process of painting and an anecdote about a stalk of celery absorbing a red dye. She narrates dark moments from her life that might be triggering to sensitive readers. At the same time, she gives references to quotes and poems that enlightened her through her healing journey. It is also well organized, with a glossary of concepts and beautiful designs that make it visually appealing. I loved it and cannot wait to read more in the series.”
