Item description for The Trauma Zone: Trusting God for Emotional Healing by R. Dandridge Collins...
Overview Survivors of severe trauma are never the same. Often they become trapped, unable to return to normal life. This book reaches out to survivors with practical, biblical insights to help them get unstuck and move toward healing.
Publishers Description In the eerie, classic television show "The Twilight Zone," characters caught in the zone wanted nothing more than to return to normal life. Similarly, survivors of severe trauma fall into the trauma zone--place they want to escape from, but can't. Some cannot move forward, feeling stuck and victimized by their past. Some cannot see the present, living in denial of what has happened. And others cannot learn from the past, repeating the same mistakes over and over. All of them find they can't cope with the overwhelming emotions that accompany trauma. Collins, a licensed psychologist with over 25 years experience in the healthcare field, believes there is a way out of the trauma zone and back to emotional health, a path he outlines in this practical, encouraging book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Trauma Zone?
The Trauma Zone Mar 9, 2007
The Trauma Zone is filled with practical concepts and powerful truths (stuff you can actually use to move on). For example, Dr. Collins compassionately lets us know that "trauma can't tell time" in chapter 11. I could go on and on but I don't want to spoil it for anyone -- extremely helpful and greatly needed.
Easy Read. Feb 15, 2007
I found this book to be an easy read which is good for those who are suffering with traumatic stress. The trauma state can make it difficult to assimilate more difficult information. Also, this could be a decent resource for those who are spiritually-minded Christians. Overall, this book seems to be a good adjunct to psychological counseling.
