More books

So I have picked up a couple of new books to continue in my reading. I can only work through the Courage to Heal workbook at a certain pace. I picked up -

Secret Survivors
Secret Scars
Healing Trauma by Peter Levine
Walking the Tiger by Peter Levine (actually only downloaded a sample of this one)

Looked at "Drama of the Gifted Child" at the bookstore over the weekend, although I didn't buy it.

Any comments on these? Any others to add to the list? Reading is one of my comforts - although it usually isn't as intense as these.

For pleasure, I just started Elegance of the Hedgehog.


  1. Is the secret scars the Turner or Robson book? I've heard good things about 'waking the tiger'.

  2. I think Secret Scars is Tower? I'll check - the book is on home. I think you are right - it is Waking (not Walking) the Tiger. Although I'm not sure I want to do either :)

  3. I've tried reading "Courage to Heal" and just couldn't do it. I ended up giving the book away. I guess I wasn't 'there' yet.

    I have read "Waking the Tiger" and enjoyed it. A number of things made sense to me but I'm not sure if I could wake the tiger so to speak either.

  4. inamaze - I am working my way slowly through Courage to Heal. I put it down sometimes for months at a time. I'm finding that healing doesn't adhere to a schedule. You do what you can when you can.

    Take care.
