Survival Guilt-A Self-Help Guide
Before survivors of traumatic events can stop feeling guilty, they often need to focus on
the guilt they're experiencing and the problems it has caused. Survival Guilt
counsels readers to respect their feelings, but also to examine them from the wider
context of the stresses inherent in the situation and to make a more realistic assessment
of their role in the event. Suggestions also are made to cope with survival guilt when it
can not be eliminated because it is based in reality or in difficult moral dilemmas.
