Publisher's Summary

Hope and light are on the horizon to help clients overcome the challenges of healing and releasing the pain of relational trauma.

The highly acclaimed Transcending Trauma explores a unique, compassionate, and evidence-based approach to resolving complex and dissociative trauma. In this transformative audiobook, Frank Anderson, MD, masterfully details an IFS path to therapy that allows clients to access their inherent capacity for healing - called self-energy - while also helping them welcome, as opposed to manage, the extreme emotions frequently associated with trauma.

Included are clinical case examples, summaries, current neuroscience research, and personal stories that will enable your clients to reclaim self-connection, experience self-love, and regain the ability to connect with and love others. 

Designed with clinicians in mind, this audiobook offers a comprehensive map to complex trauma treatment that will enable listeners to:

  • Learn how to stay calm and steady in the presence of extreme symptoms
  • Discover a different approach to resolving attachment trauma
  • Gain confidence when addressing shame, neglect, and dissociation
  • Understand the neurobiology of PTSD and dissociation
  • Integrate neuroscience-informed therapeutic interventions
  • Effectively address medications and common comorbidities
  • Incorporate IFS with other models of treatment

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Insightful and Masterful

I truly enjoyed the insights provided by Dr Anderson as it helps me deepen the IFS work I do with my coaching clients, as well as my own self healing work. I especially enjoyed the final chapter where Dr Anderson provides his philosophy on trauma as a teacher and the way he experiences connection to source. There are many books by IFS practitioners (all very good), and I totally enjoyed being able to experience Dr Anderson’s perspective in the model and it’s many uses. This will definitely be a go-to book for reference again and again. Thanks Dr Anderson!

Good information

But the book could not capture my full attention. Might have been that he spoke in-monotonous tone!

Frank Anderson poured his heart and soul into this book. He had a passion for IFS that shows up in each chapter! He added things he learned on his own journey and this makes it a must read book!

A beautifully narrated and incredibly insightful and useful book. Clear, concise, and exploding with helpful information. I am sure I will be returning to this time and time again in my work with my clients, and my own internal journey. Bravo!

Must for IFS Therapists

Much needed book. I think Frank has managed to fill in some gaps from IFS training, and also clarify some nuances. It seems to also strengthen the IFS model. Will re-listen a few times because IFS is main model I use.
