Hello and welcome to The Wounded Healer Journal. TWHJ is the oldest point of presence on the web for psychotherapists and others who have experienced the devastation of trauma including child abuse.
Created and maintained from 1995-2002 by Linda Chapman, TWHJ is now managed by Carol McClure.
TWHJ has both forums and chat rooms for Adult Survivors of Trauma and Abuse. We also have a Resources site that can assist you in finding more information about many of the topics found in the forums.
Topics discussed in the TWHJ Forums include: Treatment after abuse and trauma (counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatric care), psychological effects of child sexual abuse, neglect, physical and verbal abuse, domestic violence, dissociative identity disorder (DID – formerly multiple personality disorder or MPD), PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), dealing with emotional maltreatment, abandonment, ritual abuse, depression, panic and anxiety, incest, sexual assault, self injury, eating disorders, alternative therapies including EMDR and energy therapies like Healing Touch, mental health resources, health issues, male survivors, relationship issues, crisis lines, finding a therapist, bipolar disorder, addiction, grief and loss, and spirituality — to name a few.
