Item description for Trauma and Evil: Healing the Wounded Soul by J. Jeffrey Means & Mary Ann Nelson...
Overview This book enables caregivers working with victims of abuse and violence to add to their knowledge base an understanding of evil and how it works to destroy. Arguing that Rthe worst forms of trauma are the human intentional type", or trauma perpetrated consciously and intentionally by one human being on another, the authors define radical evil, symbolized by Satan, as trauma-inducing acts that are engaged in consciously, for its own sake, in an unapologetic way.
Publishers Description This book helps those who provide care to victims of abuse and violence add to their knowledge base an understanding of evil. The authors "demythologize" evil and offer an integrated perspective that looks within persons, relationships, and culture to better identify the seeds of potential abuse and violence. The book encourages caregivers to take an actively prophetic role in addressing the seeds of abuse that lie within each one of us and our culture.
