Turning Tragedy Into Triumph

Book - 2016
Rate this:
This is a collection of survivor stories written by people who have not only survived trauma but who have regrouped and gone on to bigger and better things. Each contributor tells their story in a chapter, and then Dr. Sharp analyzes each life story from a psychological perspective and gives readers "take home tips" which they can use in their own lives. The contributors have overcome such tragedies as alcoholism, depression, and cancer; limb amputation following a car accident; a policeman's recovery from post-traumatic stress; the death of a child; losing all the other members of your family in a mass murder; and child sexual abuse.
