book review: deep impact

title: Deep Impact: keys to integrating theology and psychology in the treatment of complex traumatic stress
author: A. E. Gilles
publisher: World Alive Press
year: 2016

A.E. Gilles writes about complex trauma from the perspective of personal experience, as a psychologist and as a pastor.

She provides a great overview of some of the dynamics of complex trauma. While the book is short, and is not intended to be a textbook on the issue, it is an excellent introduction to something the church does not often recognize. She also provides some helpful approaches and resources to assisting people with complex trauma.
