Traumas and Triumphs: A Psychologist's Personal Recipe for Happiness
What does it take to transcend the impact of trauma and achieve happiness, meaning, and purpose?
At an early age, Dr. Paul Foxman became a victim of childhood sexual abuse, poverty, multiple life-threatening medical crises, a hostile divorce, and exposure to violence. Now an accomplished psychologist, Dr. Foxman shares key lessons from the process of overcoming traumas to create a life filled with love, fulfillment, and security. He validates the possibility of a fulfilling life that goes well beyond survival to true recovery: to regain the ability to trust, to love and be loved, to feel empowered and safe, and to discover one’s purpose.
In Traumas and Triumphs, Dr. Foxman recounts his inspiring personal journey to recovery while supplying insights into resources to aid in managing anxiety and healing from trauma.
