Here are some great resources:
- Trauma and Recovery by Judith Herman
- Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine
- Getting Past Your Past by Francine Shapiro
These books have given me insight into the complex experiences of trauma as well as how to move forward after trauma. As a parent of teenagers, I find I learn the most through real-life applications. I also highly recommend Dr. Lisa Damour’s Untangled, which looks into the stages of adolescence and how we can best support our children during these developmental milestones.
If you are someone who enjoys an educational podcast, I highly recommend Laurie Santos’, The Happiness Lab Podcast
