You Are Not Your Trauma

Uproot Unhealthy Patterns, Heal the Family Tree

Caroline Beidler, MSW, with Diana Dalles, LPN, MSSW

Identify unhealthy patterns that keep you stuck and learn how to live more freely in your life without your trauma—or your family’s trauma—holding you back.

Do you wonder how trauma has impacted your own family, life, or recovery? How it has climbed its way up the branches of your family tree?

Are you looking for practical ways to heal? Are you ready to let go of your own trauma or inter-generational and family trauma?

You Are Not Your Trauma: Uproot Unhealthy Patterns, Heal the Family Tree will guide you along five rhythms that promote trauma healing and recovery. Throughout the book, you’ll learn how to identify those areas that may be keeping you stuck and how to live more freely in your life without your trauma—or your family’s trauma—holding you back. You will learn the science behind inter-generational trauma, get practical guidance, and learn healthy coping strategies to heal.
