BlogTalk Radio Interview with Debbie Sprague…writing as therapy & healing…  Click then download the podcast of radio show interview…

It was an honor to participate as a guest of Debbie Sprague for a topic that is close to my heart and passion for many years, especially following the publication of my book.  There are many choices for alternative treatments that are often described as “mindfulness” techniques for healing and release of emotions during a traumatic life experience and in life after trauma.  Writing is my therapy of choice…but might not be for everyone.  For me, writing each day in my blog keeps the pain of a traumatic past at a safe distance.  Being engaged in PTSD awareness and collaborating with others like Family of a Vet has made my years in retirement very special.  This is my second interview with Debbie Sprague, who is the author of A Stranger in My Bed. Debbie tells her story of learning to survive and thrive with her husband, Randy, who served in combat during the Vietnam War… 

Please take a little quality time and listen to all three interviews with Tiffany Cloud Olson, Author, Sleeping with Dog Tags; Andrew R. Jones, Author, Healing the Warrior Heart; and yours truly…  In my book, Reconciliation: A Son’s Story, included in the epilogue on page 144, is “Path to Self Discovery – Author’s Learning Perspective.”  I describe the model used to write my own story as a case study or problem solving process to discover the truth about my family’s post WWII life after war circumstances.  I often point to my childhood in the 1950’s as the “too terrible to remember 50’s.”  Through the therapy and healing of writing, that brings increased awareness of the symptoms and circumstances of life after trauma, we can not only survive but also thrive by making a difference for others…
