Thema Bryant-Davis has provided practitioners in the field and survivors of trauma with a significant resource. She sheds new light on the previously poorly illuminated road to trauma recovery for survivors who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and she describes clinical interventions that incorporate art, music, movement, and poetry. Thriving in the Wake of Trauma will enrich practice, teaching, and the recovery process.  Laura Palmer, Department of Psychology, Seton Hall University

I feel in awe of this truly amazing and original artist. Don’t expect to listen… and then go about living your life without your full voice begging to be let out. She leaves you aching to live life more fully, and provides you with the energy and hope to get up and do just that. She has wisdom that allows her to clearly see the truth and the bravery to actually SPEAK IT.   A customer on amazon.com
