Coping With Trauma: A Guide to Self-Understanding

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Enter Jon Allen, Ph.D., psychologist, whose Guide to Self-Understanding extends the professional literature more toward the general population, albeit for those more psychologically minded than not, as exemplified by a liberal use of technical terms such as internalized and phrases such as repetition compulsion, neither defined. Identification of contributors is a hodgepodge; some are listed by name only (without credentials), others with role definition only (psychologists, psychiatrists), and one misidentified (psychologist Otnow, without her medical degree).
