Resilience and Survival: Understanding and Healing Intergenerational Trauma - Clara Mucci
Resilience stands at the limits of what it means to be human. The opposite of vulnerability, it encompasses qualities that are both relational and innate.
In this unique book, Clara Mucci explores contemporary therapeutic approaches to intergenerational trauma, focusing on the key factors that can foster resilience and healing. She looks through the prism of attachment theory and developmental neuroscience but also explores the power of art, memoir and other frameworks, to discover what constitutes a predisposition to resilience – in individuals, and in society.
