Trauma can have a lifelong effect on people, stunting their mental, physical, emotional, or even social development to a large extent. Sparrow Spaulding is a trauma specialist who suffered from childhood trauma at an early age and continued to be roped into its vicious cycle until her adult years due to an amalgamation of events. After seeking counseling and delving into a variety of trauma-recovery tools, she discovered that when something traumatic happens to us, facets of our inner self get frozen in time. Through Uncaged, Spaulding seeks to help readers on their healing journey through her own trauma recovery model, the Facet Integration Technique. This book provides readers with an in-depth analysis of the various types of trauma, the long-term effects of violence, healing from abuse, recovering self-worth, and much more.
Author Sparrow Spaulding uses anecdotes from her own life and that of her clients to paint a vivid picture of every aspect of trauma and the subsequent journey to recovery. There is much in the narrative that feels revolutionary and, at times, may even seem radical. But Spaulding backs up her beliefs with well-researched and reasoned arguments, which makes the content all the more relatable and engaging to read. Uncaged is informative and illuminating in a way that is accessible to the general public. There are questionnaires and helpful insights at the end of each chapter to help readers fully grasp the contents of each chapter. I found the book thoroughly riveting, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking recovery from any kind of trauma.
