I am in the position of being someone who is writing about issues, rarely discussed or written about elsewhere. I write about the many layers and deep impact caused by complex trauma. I write about issues many survivors and mental health professionals – don’t understand and/or cannot verbalise.
Many authors are re-writing work about e.g. abuse, or PTSD. They change the words, but it is still work other people have already shared. The self publishing world has led to an over saturation of work about abuse and trauma.
And I’m not saying there isn’t any merit in that, but my work is insight I have not seen elsewhere. I am describing deep insight into the way complex trauma survivors are impacted, that is rare.
This is why my work was described by a psychologist as ‘an historic milestone’.
And I know this is what I bring to the table…… new insight, deep insight and an ability to express that, in a way that is meaningful for others. I don’t use fancy medical/psychology jargon, I just write about how it feels.
I am very thankful to be able to do this, because complex trauma is still a new area of psychology, and much more dialogue is needed.
