In this volume, Deirdre Barrett brings together the study of dreams and the psychology of trauma. A distinguished group of psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers--among them Rosalind Cartwright, Robert Lifton, and Oliver Sacks--consider here how trauma shapes dreaming and what the dreaming mind might reveal about trauma.
“A novel exploration of societal roles, gender, and equality.” —School Library Journal (starred review) The Outsiders meets Mad Max: Fury Road in this “daring and dramatic” (Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling) dystopian novel about sisterhood and the cruel choices people are forced to make in order to survive. At night, Las Mal Criadas own these streets. Sixteen-year-old Nalah leads the fiercest all-girl crew in Mega City. That role brings with it violent throwdowns and access to the hottest boydega clubs, but Nala quickly grows weary of her questionable lifestyle. Her dream is to get off the streets and make a home in the exclusive Mega Towers, in which only a chosen few get to live. To make it to the Mega Towers, Nalah must prove her loyalty to the city’s benevolent founder and cross the border in a search of the mysterious gang the Ashé Riders. Led by a reluctant guide, Nalah battles crews and her own doubts but the closer she gets to her goal the more she loses sight of everything—and everyone—she cares about. Nalah must choose whether or not she’s willing to do the unspeakable to get what she wants. Can she discover that home is not where you live but whom you chose to protect before she loses the family she’s created for good?

Practically all the popular dream books on the market are written from Hindu, New Age and/or parapsychology viewpoints. In contrast, "Understanding Dreams from God" was written to present a worldview that affirms the historicity and authority of the Torah, Psalms and Gospels. These holy writings acknowledge that God has used dreams and visions to communicate with humanity for thousands of years. They have much to say about supernatural revelation, dream interpretations, purposes and limits of dreams, false dreams and the reality of the spirit world. It is written: For God does speak-now one way, now another-though man may not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride, to preserve his would from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword. (Job 33: 14-18)
