Summary

Argues that we carry within us multiple layers of trauma—personal, familial, and cultural—that infuse the way we relate to one another.

Many of us encounter trauma at some point in our lives, whether through our own experiences or through relationships with trauma victims. Hale describes these encounters as journeys to “the Red Place”––an emotionally intense state of being that contains both the heroic and the monstrous aspects of past violations, a place where we can both experience the pain of trauma and find the strength to cope with it. This book courageously delves into the psychological complexities of the Red Place by analyzing stories of trauma––from myths to films and novels, to real-life case studies from her work as a psychotherapist.

With clarity and compassion, Hale reveals how we can harness the generative forces of the Red Place rather than being led by its destructive ones. The Red Place is an invaluable source of insight, support, and inspiration for all those working to resolve and transform past traumas.

“Empathically takes the reader into the world of trauma in a remarkably reflective, even-handed way.” — Joseph Cambray, PhD, Jungian analyst; past president, IAAP

“An original, heartfelt, and illuminating work about the healing potential of empathic connection.” — Renée Shafransky, MA, LMHC, New York

“Clinicians in the helping profession, students and teachers of psychology, and anyone who is interested in the multilayered dynamics inherent in moving through, and beyond, the most difficult and painful experiences in life, will find this book a guide towards understanding and transforming trauma.” — Kathryn Brown, MA, LMFT, Emeritus Professor, Counseling Psychology, Pacifica Graduate Institute

Cynthia Anne Hale, PhD, LCSW, practices depth psychology as an educator, writer, and psychotherapist, exploring the connections between inner and outer experiences. www.imaginalways.com
