Engaging Survivors of Extreme Violence - Martha Bragin, Ph.D., LCSW
Engaging survivors of extreme violence in treatment requires the therapist’s ability to understand and tolerate the awareness of terrible, unacceptable events in the world and themselves. Dr. Martha Bragin has spent her professional career working with survivors of extreme violence. For her, the work of Melanie Klein, a post-Freudian psychoanalyst, provides a springboard for understanding and connecting to these survivors, who feel isolated by their experiences. She discusses her work in this interview.
Connecting with Combat Veteran - Martha Bragin, Ph.D., LCSW
All combat veterans are changed by their experience, and it has become harder and harder for soldier and civilian therapists to connect. Their lives are incomprehensible to each other. Dr. Bragin explains why this is so. Soldiers are not “the other,” but their experiences echo our deepest, most buried emotions of anger and aggression.
“Interviews were clear, concise, to the point – an enjoyable way to learn.”
