Trauma and Recovery | Judith Lewis Herman

This is a really informative book about the history and research of trauma. However, being published in the 50s means it‘s extremely outdated in many ways. Particularly in the language that is used, and lacking much intersectionality when it comes to who is most impacted by trauma in systemic ways. I would recommend as a foundational text about trauma though!

Your $5 or $10 can mean a lot to survivors living with the effects/affects of trauma! Corporations are matching donations in the US. Consider survivors when deciding if and where to give today! Thanks! #GivingTuesday #supportsurvivors #everylittlebithelps

In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. Secrecy and silence are the perpetrator's first line of defense. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure that no one listens. To this end, he marshals an impressive array of arguments, from the most blatant denial to the most sophisticated..

"It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing."
