Associate Professor. Ayten Zara presents us with her new book “Healing the Spirit”, in which she tells about her knowledge and experience in the field of clinical psychology, along with the memories she has collected by traveling all over the world.
Ayten Zara, who gives lectures on “Society and Clinical Psychology” as a lecturer in the Psychology Department of Istanbul Bilgi University, has made a name for herself with many aid projects. He is also the founder and director of the World Human Relief non-governmental organization.
The author, who is a peace and human rights advocate, conducts civil society campaigns, gives speeches and gives trainings to better understand and support traumatized people, whom we call difficult to reach abroad and at home, in order to promote social peace and rights-based approaches.
Ayten Zara, in her book Healing the Spirit, deals with many psychological topics such as anger, aggression, trauma and grief, in particular issues such as violence against women and child abuse that are constantly on the agenda of our country.
