The biographical Wound


  • Trauma work in the (social) pedagogical context
  • Building bridges between psychological approaches and pedagogical acting
  • With hands-on case studies, instructions and materials

For a long time, the topic of “traumatisation” has been a taboo in the field of social and pedagogical work and had been declared psychological-therapeutic work only.
Insights from trauma, brain and attachment research point out the necessity of a new understanding of trauma-specific cases. Social pedagogues and other pedagogical experts can work with traumatised people, who have gone through extremely distressing and threatening situations, such as exposure to violence, injuries, loss, flight, in a stabilising and resource-orientated manner.
Apart from basics of symptoms, risk and protective factors, work guidelines, methods and tips on how to deal with specific situations, the book also provides ideas on self protection for helpers.
New: Information on dissociative Phenomena, exercises for feeling enjoyment, recent finds on trauma experience from experts.
