In her ground-breaking new book, The Therapeutic "Aha"!, clinician Courtney Armstrong details a comprehensive new approach of healing trauma through techniques that include a sense of freedom, personality and play. She shares her ideas (that benefit both clinicians and survivors) in this extensive interview. Michele Rosenthal is a an award-winning PTSD blogger, best-selling and award-nominated author and the founder of HealMyPTSD.com. Her shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.
