What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing
By Oprah Winfrey, Bruce D. Perry
Why this book?
What Happened to You? is both profound and easy to understand. Bruce Perry, one of the leading experts on early childhood trauma, has been a frequent guest of Oprah Winfrey, who has spoken many times about the trauma she experienced and the impact it had on her life. In this “conversation”, they explore what constitutes trauma, the effect it has on a person’s life, and how to find healing. Simply put, we need to change the question we ask of anyone who is struggling (especially a child) from “what’s wrong with you” to “what happened to you?” If you’re searching for understanding about your own behavior or that of someone you love, you may well find it here.
