Beyond the Violation of the Self: Getting Your Soul Right is an extraordinary labor of love that is the result of 20 years of case studies by William M. Jump, a clinical psychotherapist/hypnotherapist who specializes in working with individuals suffering from long-standing symptoms and manifestations as a result of childhood traumas. While treating his patients with hypnosis, the author uncovered a world of non-physical helpers who have emerged from his clients to teach and guide him through their individual healing processes. Beyond the Violation provides numerous examples as well as an in depth case study of one such patient, in addition to a ground breaking interview between the author and one of his patient's primary helpers. Through these unique experiences, the author makes a strong case for a much needed paradigm shift in the mental health field in order to combine the deepest understanding of psychological healing with the belief that healing is also done on the soul level. As we have seen medical doctors embrace alternative healing modalities to better treat their patients, so must mental health practitioners to achieve psychological healing and spiritual growth.
