Description

Rewrite your story—and this time, you make the rules. Were you the victim of childhood bullying based on your identity? Do you carry those scars into adulthood in the form of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dysfunctional relationships, substance abuse, or suicidal thoughts? If so, you’re not alone. Our cultural and political climate has reopened old wounds for many people who have felt “othered” at different points in their life, starting with childhood bullying. This breakthrough book will guide you as you learn to identify your deeply rooted fears, and help you heal the invisible wounds of identity-based childhood rejection, bullying, and belittling. In The Healing Otherness Handbook, Stacee Reicherzer—a nationally known transgender psychotherapist and expert on trauma, otherness, and self-sabotage—shares her own personal story of childhood bullying, and how it inspired her to help others heal from the same wounds. Drawing from mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Reicherzer will help you gain a better understanding of how past trauma has limited your life, and show you the keys to freeing yourself from self-defeating, destructive beliefs. If you’re ready to heal from the past, find power in your difference, and live an authentic life full of confidence—this handbook will help guide you, step by step.

Advance Praise

“Stacee Reicherzer’s book is a much-needed resource. She approaches the feelings of Otherness from a personal standpoint that welcomes people into the material, but in a professional manner that is well-grounded in research and expertise. By presenting a path to help individuals overcome the fear that has governed their life, she opens up doors for those who have been excluded to walk into their full and authentic experience.”
Tonya R. Hammer, PhD, associate professor of counseling and counseling psychology, and Jennifer Jacques Flanery Community Counseling Professor at Oklahoma State University 

“With wild anecdotes and heartfelt stories, Stacee Reicherzer speaks to every Other person out here. She not only provides actionable steps towards healing from bullying and ostracism, she does so with a wry humor that drew me in. The pages flew by as I laughed or cried at the shared memories all Othered people experience. Throughout this book, she brings some of the relational healing and community we so desperately need.”
Adrian S. Warren, PhD, LPC-S, president-elect of the Texas Counseling Association, and author of Acceptance and Mindfulness for Healing and Recovery
