PROFESSIONAL ARTICLES TO HELP YOU DEVELOP YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF HEALING
During my recovery I was a voracious, hungry reader.
I read everything I could get my hands on from psychological theory (I'm not kidding -- I read it all, starting with the birth of trauma theory in the late 1800s) to practical application guides to memoirs of how amazing survivors had overcome horrible tragedies.
It wasn't just that I wanted information (which is more than knowledge or power -- it's the key to process). I wanted something bigger than facts: I wanted a picture of what healing looked like.
Back in the early 2000s I didn't know how important language and pictures are to the brain. (Today, we know that everything we do, say, think, or experience is a function of the language we use and the pictures we make.) No, back then I only had this crazy idea that the more I knew the more creative I'd be in finding solutions to my trauma problem. I was right.
After my full recovery I started writing about what I knew so that people like you could do the same thing I did: gather the language and pictures necessary to create your own successful healing odyssey. Go get it!
