What We’re Reading in July

Welcome to the July edition of “What We’re Reading,” where we highlight insightful books that can enhance our understanding of mental health and support our journey toward healing and growth. This month, we’re excited to feature two remarkable works: “Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving: A Guide and Map for Recovering from Childhood Trauma” by Pete Walker and “Are We Old Yet?” by Gary Cole.

Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving by Pete Walker

In “Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving,” Pete Walker offers an invaluable resource for anyone dealing with the aftermath of childhood trauma. Walker, a seasoned therapist, presents a comprehensive guide to understanding and recovering from Complex PTSD (C-PTSD). The book delves into the intricacies of how prolonged exposure to trauma in childhood can lead to enduring emotional and psychological challenges. Walker provides practical advice, therapeutic strategies, and personal insights to help readers navigate their healing journey. This book is not only a guide but also a companion for those striving to move from merely surviving to truly thriving.

Are We Old Yet? by Garry Cole

“Are We Old Yet?” by Garry Cole is a delightful and thought-provoking exploration of aging. Cole, with his engaging storytelling and keen observations, invites readers to reflect on the societal and personal perceptions of growing older. The book is a collection of anecdotes, reflections, and insights that challenge the stereotypes and fears associated with aging. Cole’s warm and witty narrative encourages us to embrace the later stages of life with curiosity, humor, and grace. This book is a wonderful reminder that aging is not about declining but about continuing to live fully and authentically.

Both of these books offer profound wisdom and practical guidance, making them excellent additions to our reading list this month. Whether you’re seeking to understand the complexities of trauma recovery or looking to reframe your perspective on aging, these works will provide you with valuable insights and inspiration.

Happy reading!
