Journal for Survivors of Trauma and Abuse

Greetings from Midwesternville and the land of not posting. I can't believe how quickly time is flying and how rarely I've been posting lately. I have some thoughts on that, but more later.

The main purpose of this particular post is to let you know about an online journal and resource called The Wounded Healer Journal (TWHJ). The opening page of the site describes it as,

TWHJ is the oldest point of presence on the web for psychotherapists and others who have experienced the devastation of trauma including child abuse. Created and maintained from 1995-2002 by Linda Chapman, TWHJ is now managed by Carol McClure of

Topics discussed in the TWHJ Forums include: Treatment after abuse and trauma (counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatric care), psychological effects of child sexual abuse, neglect, physical and verbal abuse, domestic violence, dissociative identity disorder (DID - formerly multiple personality disorder or MPD), PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), dealing with emotional maltreatment, abandonment, ritual abuse, depression, panic and anxiety, incest, sexual assault, self injury, eating disorders, alternative therapies including EMDR and energy therapies like Healing Touch, mental health resources, health issues, male survivors, relationship issues, crisis lines, finding a therapist, bipolar disorder, addiction, grief and loss, and spirituality -- to name a few.

I hope it is helpful.
Until the next post, your sister thriver,
