Linda Nauth, a former prison psychologist in the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, has completed her book “Lifetrap: From Child Victim to Adult Victimizer”: a compelling argument for the life-altering effects of childhood trauma and the strong casual links to psychological impairment and violence in adulthood.

For twenty-eight years as a prison psychologist, Linda Nauth evaluated and provided treatment for men incarcerated for crimes of domestic violence. In this book, the offender’s life stories are integrated with research and theories from neuropsychology, child development, and trauma studies. The goal is to enter the mind of the offender and interpret the partner violence in terms of the perpetrators’ needs, fears, beliefs, and intentions.

Based on the ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) study, a strong causal link between childhood trauma and later adult violence is explored, which explains (not justifies or excuses) how these adult victims of childhood trauma learn to use intimate aggression as a major coping strategy. Jeff Young’s life trap model of personality development illustrates the self-defeating and destructive life patterns of the abused child as he becomes an adult abuser and repeats the pain of his childhood. The author offers personal reflection of working with violent offenders, a non-shaming treatment approach, and attempts to remind society of its responsibility for all of its children.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Linda Nauth’s book is an eye-opening thesis demonstrating the real connection between childhood trauma and adult violence.

Readers who wish to experience this compelling work can purchase “Lifetrap: From Child Victim to Adult Victimizer” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
