Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World:
A Guide for Activists and Their Allies
by Pattrice Jones: Lantern, 2007
100% recycled in paperback.
Aftershock offers self-care strategies for social change activists while also putting forward the idea that the same eco-feminist strategies for trauma recovery can
help us to heal our violent and violated communities and ecosystems.
An activist in a variety of
social change movements since the 1970s, Pattrice Jones
speaks and writes about the links between racism, sexism, speciesism, class
exploitation, and environmental despoilation from an eco-feminist perspective.
This book is for survivors of all kinds of trauma, for therapists who treat trauma,
and for anyone who hopes to reduce the
amount of terror in the world.
