Stories Are What Save Us - Harris Public Policy Panel
In his new book, Stories Are What Save Us: A Survivor’s Guide to Writing about Trauma, David Chrisinger shows the most efficient ways to uncover and effectively communicate what you’ve learned while fighting life’s battles. Drawing courageously from stories in his own life, he explores both the difficulties inherent in writing about personal trauma and the techniques for doing so in a responsible and compelling way.
Join David Chrisinger, trauma surgeon Dr. Brian Williams of UChicago Medicine, and Dr. Gina Fedock of the Crown School for a reflection on the importance of finding your voice, telling your story, and making a difference – both in your communities and within yourself.
This conversation was moderated by Angela Ricketts, author of No Man’s War: Irreverent Confessions of an Army Wife.
