Healing Invisible Wounds

Healing Invisible Wounds

This book reveals how in every society we have to move away from viewing trauma survivors as "broken people" and "outcasts" to seeing them as courageous people actively contributing to larger social goals.

In these personal reflections on his thirty years of clinical work with victims of genocide, torture, and abuse in the United States, Cambodia, Bosnia, and other parts of the world, Richard Mollica describes the surprising capacity of traumatized people to heal themselves. Here is how Neil Boothby, Director of the Program on Forced Migration and Health at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, describes the book: "Mollica provides a wealth of ethnographic and clinical evidence that suggests the human capacity to heal is innate--that the 'survival instinct' extends beyond the physical to include the psychological as well. He enables us to see how recovery from 'traumatic life events' needs to be viewed primarily as a 'mystery' to be listened to and explored, rather than solely as a 'problem' to be identified and solved. Healing involves a quest for meaning--with all of its emotional, cultural, religious, spiritual and existential attendants--even when bio-chemical reactions are also operative." Healing Invisible Wounds reveals how trauma survivors, through the telling of their stories, teach all of us how to deal with the tragic events of everyday life. Mollica's important discovery that humiliation--an instrument of violence that also leads to anger and despair--can be transformed through his therapeutic project into solace and redemption is a remarkable new contribution to survivors and clinicians. This book reveals how in every society we have to move away from viewing trauma survivors as "broken people" and "outcasts" to seeing them as courageous people actively contributing to larger social goals. When violence occurs, there is damage not only to individuals but to entire societies, and to the world. Through the journey of self-healing that survivors make, they enable the rest of us not only as individuals but as entire communities to recover from injury in a violent world.

Prisoner of Hope

Prisoner of Hope

Hearing another's story often prompts us to think about our own stories and learn from them. You may find that by reading Prisoner of Hope, you may learn more about yourself than about Ed Cook.

Some forks in the road simply provide a side trip or detour. Others alter the shape and meaning of a person's life. As Ed Cook writes, "My new life began the day I didn't kill myself." Choosing life on April 28, 1976 resulted in Ed's life moving in an entirely new direction. That day began a fifteen-month journey from addiction to recovery and from atheism to faith. What could have been an overly sober story is kept enjoyably readable with infusions of wit and wisdom. Hearing another's story often prompts us to think about our own stories and learn from them. You may find that by reading Prisoner of Hope, you may learn more about yourself than about Ed Cook.

The journey of a lifetime continues as Charles K. Poole’s richly individual and universally resonant views take a very personal turn in his newly published book I Am My Own Cause, Too: Hope and Recovery. In this follow-up to his well-received first book, I Am My Own Cause: An Unfiltered Blog-View of Life As I See It, Poole picks up where the last book ended. Here, he writes from the heart about living, learning, and loving in the refreshingly honest way fans of his popular blog and book have come to expect. This time, he centers his words and thoughts on being hopeful in the midst of personal recovery from . . . almost everything. Each selection in Hope and Recovery is an inspiring, thoughtful reflection on living, and Poole doesn ́t skimp on authenticity, preferring instead to fully reveal himself as focused on the journey and not just the destination. A journey through which, Poole believes, everyone can teach others and learn from others. “Every day is rich with possibilities,” Poole reminds us. “And every one of us is able to create moments that define and affirm our lives and the lives of others. It’s only by asking ourselves tough questions and examining the meaning of the answers we find that we come to appreciate the gift of life we’ve been given. Our purpose is simple: Live. Learn. Love. That’s why we’re here.”
