PRLog - Aug. 13, 2012 - We all know how impressionable children can be, but what happens when they witness the very worst?
Trauma and Survivor Syndrome
Following World War II and the liberation of Holocaust victims, physicians working with them in New York discovered that they shared common symptoms new to the medical field. This condition became broadly referred to as “Survivor Syndrome.”
Years later, Survivor Syndrome was compared with symptoms of children who witnessed domestic violence, particularly one parent inflicting brutality onto the other parent.
The eye-opening new book Trauma & Survivor Syndrome: Effects on Children Who Witness Domestic Violence explains these symptoms and differentiates them from post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD.
The book offers the case study of a child witness to domestic violence, who later under unique circumstances presented the symptoms of Survivor Syndrome. The evil that children witness manifests itself in many ways and has long-reaching effects, never to be underestimated.

About the Author: Sherry Lewis Henry, PhD, MSW, is a retired clinical social worker. She was motivated to write Trauma & Survivor Syndrome by the desire to investigate her mother’s murder. Seeking the truth became a healing journey, which led her to Israel. There, among Holocaust survivors and their progeny, she found peers, validation and existential restoration. The author’s previous books include Alcoholocaust (1999), and IS IT STILL MURDER If Someone Is Killed and Officials Refuse to Investigate?
