The Language of Letting Go
For women, the experience of trauma often leads to disorders such as addictions, eating disorders, and self-harm. With sensitivity and understanding, author Stephanie Covington explores the interrelationship between substance abuse, trauma, and mental health. Beyond Trauma curriculum components include a client workbook, client DVD, facilitator guide, and a two-volume facilitator DVD.
Beyond Trauma is extensively annotated and includes research by the Center for Gender and Justice and the National Institute of Corrections. The curriculum consists of three modules with a total of 11 sessions. Topics include abuse in the family, power and abuse, why women abuse substances after trauma, and more. By combining didactic information, role-playing, guided imagery, and workbook exercises, the Beyond Trauma curriculum is user-friendly for women of all learning styles.

This integrated, accessible treatment guide will be invaluable to therapists and the women they treat."

"Once again, Covington demonstrates her unique ability to blend insight and practicality. This curriculum offers meaningful advice to the practitioner, as well as a way toward healing for the client. Experience, thought, and compassion are joined together in an approachable and useable fashion. Covington's work here makes a serious contribution toward the healing process for women who have experienced trauma."

"This beautiful and sensitive work will go a long way to help women struggling with trauma and addiction. There's a strong need to integrate treatment for these issues, which co-occur tragically for so many. Dr. Covington's approach attends to key themes, including power, violence, self-soothing, response to trauma, the mind-body connection, and feelings. Women who receive this treatment, and the clinicians who work with them, will likely find it a life-changing experience that can open a new path. Dr. Covington's extraordinary compassion and support are a gift."
