Synopsis

Synopsis

In Victims of Cruelty, Maryanna Eckberg incorporates work with Vietnam veterans (the first to be diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder) and the Chowchilla kidnapping victims. This personal testimony of how people can heal after trauma is also a professional book describing the effects of personal and political repression and how we can liberate our bodies and minds from terror.

Praise

"Dr. Eckberg stresses bodywork and verbal therapy. Her work points to the need to choose from a growing repertoire of possibilities addressing traumatic shock today."
—Michael Eigen, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology

"Maryanna Eckberg reached with simplicity and effectiveness to the core of every wound. In her work in Spain beginning in 1981, many of us received her healing energy. Some of us have followed her in the psychotherapeutic method linking body and psyche. Psychotherapy showed up living in Maryanna—she was a great master."
—Jesus Landa, psychologist and psychotherapist, Madrid
