Books to reflect, heal, and be inspired
in the midst of transformative trauma
Three women explore the secrecy, silence, and shame of having an alcoholic parent, bringing pain to light for acceptance, mutual recognition, and comfort. For Transforming Memories, lead author Liz Crocker collects their writing and invites others to use spontaneous writing to integrate difficult memories with clarity.
Privileged Presence, co-authored by Liz Crocker and Bev Johnson, showcases stories from patients, families and health care providers on respect, compassion, collaboration, communication, family, and responsiveness—and explores the difference those essentials make to our well-being and confidence in recovery.
The Healing Circle, by Dr. Rob Rutledge, MD and Timothy Walker, PhD and edited by Liz Crocker, helps people face a cancer diagnosis with science, wisdom, and a compassionate and practical approach to caring for body, mind and spirit—with reflection for loved ones, medical professionals, and the community.
