This educational video presents recovered survivors and therapists discussing their experiences with the healing process after traumatic events. It sensitively portrays insights into the impact of trauma on the survivors’ lives, however, the main focus on the film is on what helped or did not help them during their healing process.
Survivors of trauma often have difficulty believing that they will ever recover. This film provides a message of hope, as well as first-hand information on what was helpful to others in similar situations. The video is useful to both therapists and survivors in guiding their recovery efforts in a positive direction. Family members and community will also learn how they can assist in the recovery of their friends, loved ones and neighbors.
The videotape is closed captioned, and is available in two versions: a version for survivors, and a professional version. The professional version includes a 10-minute presentation suitable for workshops and trainings.
