Abstract

The Importance of Affective Kinetic Realities in the Experience of Trauma and inTrauma Therapy

Maxine Sheets-Johnstone

In keeping with its epistemic derivation from Greek, theOxford English Dictionarydefines trauma as “A wound, orexternal bodily injury in general.” That definition hasexpanded and even shifted toward a more mentalunderstanding of trauma, and correlatively toward“managing” those who are trauma-afflicted or teachingthem to “cope” with what has happened, whether a matterof shock, for example, on hearing of the death of a lovedone or being in a car accident, or a matter of stress in termsof an overwhelming work load.
