I’m still assembling resources for the appendix of my new book on imagery and trauma, (Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal), due out September of 2004, BantamDell. If you know of a book, tape, video, center, method or website that you feel is a great help to people with PTSD, and you have the time, please send me an email with the reference to me at [email protected] and I’ll follow up with it.
