Mary Trump: The Reckoning

Mary Trump: The Reckoning

Trump – Whats The Best?

With her first book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, trained clinical psychologist Mary L. Trump shined a spotlight on their family’s complex history to explain how her uncle became a historically disruptive national figure. The book was a international bestseller, appearing in the midst of a heated presidential election and providing deep insight into the nation’s 45th president.

Now in The Reckoning: Our Nation’s Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal, Mary Trump examines America’s national trauma, rooted in our history but dramatically exacerbated by the impact of current events and the Trump administration’s divisive policies. She says that our failure to acknowledge this, let alone root it out, has allowed it to metastasize. Whether the trauma manifests itself in rising levels of rage and hatred, or hopelessness and apathy, the stress of living in a country people feel they no longer recognize has affected millions. It’s a collective PTSD that a new leader alone cannot fix.

Mary Trump how our current trauma is the logical outcome of the stories we tell ourselves, the myths we embrace, and the lies we perpetuate. Trauma shapes us in ways we may not be aware of, and will always do so unless we face what has happened to us, what we’ve done to ourselves, what we’ve done to each other. She says an enormous amount of healing must be done to rebuild our faith in leadership, and our hope for this nation, and it starts with the reckoning.

Mary L. Trump holds a Ph.D. from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies at Adelphi University, and has taught graduate courses in trauma, psychopathology and developmental psychology.
