Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic: How Trauma Works and How We Can Heal From It

Can I let you in on a secret? All of us have experienced trauma in one form or another. Everyone may not speak about it and you may have no idea, but I guarantee that those you love will deal with it at one point in their lives. Many of you reading this have your own story and battle the events that changed your world in an instant. It could be childhood abuse, the sudden death of a loved one, a crippling health diagnosis, a bad car accident, the loss of a job, the effects of addiction, racism, and those are just to name a few. So why is there not more conversation about what is happening to us? Why aren't there more answers, more support, or better solutions being given?

Paul Conti writes so clearly on this issue in his book Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic. Paul has a message to share with the world and it is one that many desperately need to hear. Thankfully the stigma around mental health is beginning to change but there still is a long way to go. So many of us are living our lives being led by the traumatic events that happened and have no idea. We don’t understand why we can’t overcome our struggles but we do know that we don’t want to continue in these toxic cycles. If you want to know how to be better for yourself and those you love, this book will bless you with the gift of understanding. 

I would recommend this book to everyone in your life because we all have things that we need to heal from. Paul will help you pull back the layers of trauma, identify it, and start your journey to becoming a better you. I am grateful for authors like Paul because they are sharing their knowledge with the world to help create a better future for those to come. I really hope that you take a chance and pick up this book, because I think there is something within these pages for all of us. Happy reading friends!
