Item description for Transforming Trauma: A Path Toward Wholeness by Teresa Rhodes McGee...
For survivors of abuse, violence, illness, and loss, and those who know, love, and counsel them--here is a way to understand trauma and experience the peace of God in the midst of pain. Teresa McGee looks at the many wounds that shatter the human heart and asks, "Where is God in all this?" Using water as a metaphor, she makes us aware of channels of grace that flow within us and through us, generously and without cessation. "This water is deep enough to hold the human heart, its experience, its grief, its thirst." Drawing on experience, psychology, and spirituality, McGee sheds new light on individual and communal trauma--from Violence to illness to loss--and helps us to get in touch with the healing power within us and transform our suffering into compassionate witness to the truth.
