Shrink Rap Radio #416 – Trauma and The Soul with Donald Kalsched PhD


Dr. Donald Kalsched's Trauma and the Soul: A psycho-spiritual approach to human development and its interruption (2013) was one of my Best Books for 2013, and it was the long-awaited follow-up to his now classic first book, The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defences of the Personal Spirit (1996). The unique depth and insight of his trauma model, which is partly Jungian, partly relational/intersubjective (psychoanalytic), partly somatic, and probably some other parts, as well, is innovative and powerful.

My friend Monica also posted recently about Dr. Kalsched - check it out at her excellent blog, Beyond Meds.
