Written Work

Laura writing


I’ve written a number of books for professionals, including three that are my best sellers: Cultural competence in trauma therapyFeminist therapy, and the award-winning Subversive dialogues: Theory in feminist therapy.

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!

Written CE courses

These CE courses are available online in a written format that allows you to read for free, paying only when you take the exam and get the credits. A nice way to learn from your own computer and enhance your abilities to work with trauma survivors. A complete list of all my live, written and recorded CE courses is available on the CE Workshops and Courses page.

These are some handouts that I frequently share with others, including my note-taking form for therapists, and a handout that I’ve included in several of my books in which I describe the many ways in which people are powerful.
