By: Dennis J. Stouffer (author)Paperback
More than 4 weeks availability
Based on detailed interviews with twenty adult burn survivors, Journeys Through Hell examines self, identity and social reality. Stouffer integrates theoretical perspectives with the survivors' own words to show how trauma affects the survivor's worldview, how support and acceptance are achieved, and how such an achievement is embedded within a social process involving not only the survivor but also doctors, nurses, therapists, friends and family members.
Dennis J. Stouffer is a member of the Board of Directors of the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation and an Emergency Planning and Management Specialist for Hughes Aircraft Company. He has a Ph.D. in Sociology (University of California, Union Institute) and has done extensive research on the long term consequences of burn injury.
