The power of this book lies in its passionate appeal to news and entertainment media for their help in turning the horrors of history into healing and peace. Beyond the Trauma Vortex clarifies how reactions to trauma can influence reporting in ways that distort news coverage for readers and viewers, adding to their confusion and helplessness rather than informing and moving them to constructive action.

Delving first into the destructive nature of the "trauma vortex" through a variety of individual and historical examples, Ross then offers her insight into an alternate, restorative "healing vortex

In Beyond the Trauma Vortex, Gina Ross proposes a collaboration between the media, trauma researchers, and helping officials in order to break the vicious cycle of trauma and violence. The media, Ross suggests, can use their tremendous influence to promote peace rather than violence and to heal wounded psyches, communities, and nations. Delving first into the destructive nature of the "trauma vortex" through a variety of individual and historical examples, Ross then offers her insight into an alternate, restorative "healing vortex." By focusing on the interrelatedness of personal and collective healing, the author makes a compelling case for why—and how—media professionals can play an influential role in effecting widespread healing for their viewers and for themselves.

I am so glad I found this author and this book. It is so interesting and helpful. Our media does play an important role in the way that they influence society--for better or worse. Media has the power to either plant seeds of peace or of dissent. Too often, I see the media planting seeds of dissent, rather than peace and fostering of healing. I thought news was supposed to be objective and "just the facts" (which would be traumatizing enough) but it seems to fall more in the "editorial" realm these days--and they seem to want to add to the trauma. Must sell better. But, what are the long term consequences? But, this book helps one realize--not only do we all have responsibility as we report the news or talk about events, we also have the ability to process the trauma that events, learning of the news and even hearing editorials create. I love it that we can learn to process stressful events--and even trauma--so that we don't have to suffer long term consequences and we can go on to live our best lives. I definitely recommend this book! Great author! Much wisdom.

Gina Ross tackles an important subject and she does it from her own experience as a Jewish woman who has lived through difficult times in the Middle East. This book certainly expresses her passionate feelings about the effects of trauma on a community or a country. However, once she gets to the meat of the subject of the book she fails. What replaces the traumatic material, when that's a large part of the national news? How do communities heal from trauma or secondary trauma? How do individual stations help their communities heal when the stations control only about 5% of their content?
Gina's prose also fails her. It's often confusing and occasionally states the opposite of what she apparently intends. Another failure is that she hasn't really thought through how the media might help a community once it is traumatized. Mostly she talks about techniques for healing individuals and even there her information is quite limited.
Again, this is an important subject. It's clear to me that it has not yet been addressed.

Gina Ross's book is a learned and engaging study of the causes and effects of trauma in society.
The book introduces a fascinating premise: if we understand the root causes of trauma, how it is generated and repeated, both wittingly and unwittingly, then we can find ways of effectively controlling or mitigating its effects.
The central portion of the book deals with the primary source of trauma's proliferation, the modern media. Especially in a post-9/11 world, what the media chooses to discuss and how its thousands of journalists, reporters, and anchors represent various instances of trauma--terror, murder, rape, violence--is key to how the rest of us see, internalize, and ultimately repeat trauma.
Beyond the Trauma Vortex makes its case passionately, articulately, and intelligently. Its approach to applying insights from psycho-therapy to the culture at large presents a powerful model for us all and the media at large to follow. Its timing couldn't be better.

This book is the best tool I've ever met to deal with trauma's result. It enables you to totally discharge the negative energy restored by your body as a result of traumatic expirience. I used it on my wife after a car accident and it worked excellently. I highly reccomand it to anyone. It can surely help the peoples in the middle-east to find peace.
