Why, Mommy, Why? is a compelling read for both the general public and professionals in the psychology field. Jody Thomas' autobiography is the story of a joyful recovery from severe childhood abuse. Jody explores the extreme defenses we are capable of developing to survive severe trauma and how, later, these same defenses begin to work against us. Jody explores complex issues regarding the damage that can be done to a child's self-perception and how the adult that child develops into navigates the outside world. Competent psychotherapy has helped many people heal from trauma. Jody's account offers unique insight into that therapeutic process from the patient's perspective. Her ability to articulate the methods used is rare. Rarer still is her unique understanding of what lay at the heart of the healing process and the restoration of the "Self." This is a heart-felt story of survival and success with many tears leading, finally, to joy. With illustrations by the author.
