For Survivors

When trauma is thrust upon us, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and perhaps helpless. But there are sources of aid to help survivors conquer their trauma. As Geral Blanchard says in his book, Transcending Trauma, "the trajectory of a trauma victim's life is determined not by the traumatic event itself, but by the victim's response to the event."

If you are a survivor or care for one, we have resources created for helping with the very personal process of healing.

Healing from Sexual Violence

Click the cover to view this book in our webstore.

A visionary and practical book for those working with survivors of sexual violence, as well as for those working with the perpetrators.

As a survivor of sexual violence herself, co-author Alissa Ackerman uses her personal experience and her professional expertise to bridge connections between individuals who have experienced sexual victimization and individuals who have perpetrated it.


Transcending Trauma examines trauma from a new and encouraging perspective—suggesting that post-traumatic growth (PTG) and even thriving are possible after experiencing painful events. While this book is written primarily for health care professionals, all who are providing support to a survivor of any age will find the empirical evidence, practical guidance, anecdotes, and case studies valuable as they gently guide the trauma victim toward the resilient response necessary for post-traumatic growth.
