Extensive contemporary research on emotion which prompted the author to recast the chapters on emotion and emotion regulation. The neurobiological effects of trauma on illness. How depression is a pervasive trauma-related problem that poses a number of catch-22s for recovery. Coping With Trauma is not "self-help" book but rather a "self-education" book.
