"Getting Even" by Hildegard Messenbaugh, MD

Product Information

Dr. Hildegard Messenbaugh's life is one of extraordinary professional achievement. A Concentration Camp survivor, Messenbaugh was driven by her desire to achieve personal justice for the trauma she and her family endured during World War II.

After the war, she moved to the United States from Austria and founded Third Way Center, a nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. There she developed a unique trauma-treatment method called Six Boxes, which she and her staff have used for more than four decades to treat thousands of the most traumatized and challenging adolescents in the Rocky Mountain West.

The highly successful work has empowered young people to build better lives, to become productive members of their communities, and to break intergenerational cycles of abuse.

In Getting Even, Messenbaugh shares, for the first time in print, her unique treatment methods so that traumatized adolescents and adults everywhere may benefit from her life and work, and find their own paths to Getting Even.
