    1. This book will change you. You will have new hope. It is the number one book on my list that I would want someone interested in human rights to read. You will see that people in wars and genocides are resilient - they can and do heal themselves from the incredibly tragic circumstances they endure. And these survivors have so much to teach the rest of us. Mollica, who heads a center for refugee trauma, describes four elements of the trauma story: 1. Facts2. Culture3. Spirituality4. Listener-Story [...]

    2. I have been an admirer of Richard Mollica ever since I heard him speak in Boston in 1987. His work with refugees and survivors of trauma is monumental and profoundly humanistic and his research contributions have improved our understanding of recovery immeasurably. So I had high expectations when I sat down to read Healing Invisible Wounds as a preparation for a course on trauma and recovery. Mollica is a skilled writer and the depth of his compassion for survivors resounds throughout this book. [...]

    3. "e boy chose not to let these events rob him of the joy of life." ~ The boy was Richard Mollica's father, who witnessed his own father's murder when he was nine years old. Richard honours the memory and the example of his father, Carmelo -- a man who "fashioned a hopeful reality out of tragedy" and was known to say with a wink, "Don't worry, it's going to get worse" -- in this masterful book about trauma -- what Mollica calls the "existential injury."His essential thesis is that we all have expe [...]

    4. An optimistic and accessible account of psychological trauma and the human capacity to heal. Well grounded in science, but overlaid with a huge dose of humanism and religiosity. I think Mollica correctly blasts the over-emphasis (by media, humanitarians, therapists, etc.) on the trauma event itself, and makes a passionate plea to focus attention on the everyday leftover burdens that victims bear after the horror. But, I think he places too much responsibility and hope upon the patient's capacity [...]

    5. Great book on tough violent stories ranging from the PolPot killer squads in APAC to the ethnic cleansing in Eastern Europe. The power of the book comes from the decades of research by Dr. and the personal stories gathered from many victims of all these horrible killing fields and how they overcame their experience. A story about how human spirit prevails from PTSD. Great for any one recovering from the 80-90 Crack epidemic in Queens and all other boroughs.

    6. This book is more of a memoir of an interesting and diverse career in sometimes ground-breaking areas. I was looking for a book that explains PTSD and its healing/treatment (as this book was marketed to be), thus the 3-star rating. However, as a memoir, it's very interesting. There are many moments of hope even after extreme violence; however, I was also struck with a lot of sadness about the obstacles and discrimination that minorities continue to face.

    7. An interesting read about how people deal with the traumas of genocide, torture and natural disasters. He makes a strong case for self healing through the telling of the trauma story and the support of the community with work as an important element in self validation helping to overcome the loss of self esteem that comes with torture, displacement and loss.

    8. I enjoyed the book quite a bit. It reminds me about the importance of deep listening and the opportunity to tell life stories in a meaningful way to heal trauma. I am curious about how his learnings can be taken beyond the psychiatrist's office - I would have liked to hear more about this.

    9. This book is very inspiring and optimistic, but still candid about what trauma survivors go through. There are some interesting concepts here that will definitely help me with my job!

    10. This is a must-read to learn more about storytelling involving traumatic experiences, whether you are interested in storytelling for artistic or therapeutic purposes.
