How does one formulate a recovery and treatment plan for the profound consequences of surviving trauma? Why should the survivor begin a process of healing with the admission of what happened to them? Is the role of spirituality in trauma recovery necessary in order to heal? In Trauma and Transformation: A Twelve Step Guide, clinical social worker Rivka Edery demystifies the misunderstood resource of spirituality, as it applies to healing from trauma. She provides a guide to a personal spiritual approach that can lead a survivor in a new and powerful direction, perhaps not previously considered. Combining the details of the survivor’s inner reality with a step-by-step process of applying spiritual tools to each phase of recovery, Edery demonstrates how such a framework can be highly successful for survivors who seek to lessen their pain and confusion. Edery hypothesizes that for a treatment process to be truly effective, a survivor needs to have special skills in order to overcome their challenges. This is accomplished when a survivor embraces this process. Edery shows you how, step by step.

AFTERWARD: What to do with the pain of P.T.S.D.
SOUL-PAINPain is a response, an internal expression of your hurt and wound.  Pain can be hidden and create a silent suffering that no one knows but the survivor.  Pain can also be revealed by the survivor in ways in which they respond to having their pained activated.   All people have a deep desire to be loved and cared for, and survivors are no different.  Often times chronic, debilitating pain means that the survivor has not appropriately processed what originally caused, or causing, their pain.  Some survivors may be aware of their pain-blockages and can experience intense sadness and anger by their inability to do anything about it.  Because of this, the lives of some survivors are lacking in warm, close bonds or a stable social network.  
STEP TWELVE Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
You start your recovery process with identifying, and relating to a Higher Power as you understand this Power.  This understanding, in partnership with applying time-tested principles, puts you in touch with that power greater than yourself.  As you continue to apply the principles, and your understanding deepens, you can explain to yourself what this Power is, and how it manifests in your personal life journey.  At this point, you have experienced a spiritual awakening personal to you.  This has happened slowly and gradually, as you have been patiently working the steps.  If you have been asleep for a long period of time, you may need a long period of time to awaken.  It does not happen overnight.  
STEP ELEVEN Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the Power to carry that out.
Step Eleven is the daily practice and experience of deepening your awareness of your Higher Power through prayer and meditation.  You are capable of prayer and meditation, regardless of your background or history.  If you set aside the time daily, you can reach for whatever you believe is greater than, deeper than, or beyond yourself.  Step Eleven also assumes that by now you have a conscious awareness of your Higher Power, and you are drawn to deepening that connection.
