I’ve written a number of books for professionals, including three that are my best sellers: Cultural competence in trauma therapy, Feminist therapy, and the award-winning Subversive dialogues: Theory in feminist therapy. A new book, Supervision essentials for the feminist psychotherapy model of supervision will be published in February 2016 by APA, with its companion DVD in which I demonstrate feminist supervision.
In 2013 I began to publish books for the general public with a focus on the unique concerns of adults who had survived childhood trauma or neglect. Your turn for care: Surviving the aging and death of the adults who harmed you, was the first of these books. Not the price of admission: Healthy relationships after childhood trauma was published at the end of December, 2015. I’m excited by the feedback I’ve received since it’s come out!
