  • "Wounded by Reality, as its provocative title suggests, inspires the reader to follow the author Ghislaine Boulanger into the pain, horror and grief that is the emotional like of surviving 'the extremes of experience.' Written with sensitivity, grace and honesty, the ideas, insights and suggestions clear enough to be accessible to non-analytically oriented readers, clinicians from varying backgrounds and experience with trauma will find this book heartwarming and instructive."

    The culmination of three decades of studying and treating survivors of adult onset trauma, Wounded by Reality is the first systematic attempt to differentiate adult onset trauma from childhood trauma, with which it is frequently confused. When catastrophic events overtake adult lives, they often scar the psyche in ways that psychodynamically oriented clinicians struggle to understand. For Ghislaine Boulanger, the enormous challenge of working with these patients is unsurprising. Survivors of major catastrophe, whether a natural disaster, a life-threatening assault, a serious accident, or an act of terrorism, experience a near-fatal disruption of fundamental aspects of self experience. The sense of agency, of affectivity, of bodily integrity, the capacity for self-reflection, the sense of time, and the ability to relate to others - all are called into question.

"Reality": Defined by a Wounded Warrior

"[Wounded by Reality is] timely and insightful, particularly in its analysis of the subjective experience of adults who have survived devastating trauma, and it will be of interest not only to therapists who treat adult trauma survivors but also, more generally, to scholars hoping to understand the psychological consequences of traumatic events."
