About the book

The author emphasizes that traumatic experience not only the event, but the processing of event and the assumption of meaning to it. The sense of traumatization is a subjective point. The narrative about traumatic event usually avoidant, so a volume of traumatic experiences related to volume of silence about it. The dynamic of  its comprehension has three options:

- completed narradigma cycle,

- stopped narradigma cycle,

- disrupted narradigma cycle,

where narradigma - pointed by prof. V.A. Shkuratov theory about evolution of meanings. Psychoanalytic approach called the first option Ego Strength, the second option - Ego Weakness and the third one, PTSD, left without psychodynamic explanation.

Clinical vignettes and examples from Russian classic literature illustrate theoretical material.
