You don't have to use someone else's definition of you as a compass point anymore
Rewrite your story and this time,
you make the rules.
Were you bullied as a child for being different? Do you carry those scars today in the form of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dysfunctional relationships, substance abuse, or suicidal thoughts? If so, you’re not alone. Many people who were made to feel “othered” as a child struggle with fear, shame, and continued discrimination as adults. Now there is a compassionate guide to help you heal the invisible wounds of identity-based childhood rejection, bullying, and belittling—so you can finally move forward in your life.
In The Healing Otherness Handbook, Stacee Reicherzer, PhD — a transgender psychotherapist and expert on trauma, otherness, and self-sabotage — shares her personal story of childhood bullying, and how it inspired her to help others. You’ll discover mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills to help you gain a better understanding of how your past trauma has limited you, so you can finally free yourself from fear and self-destructive beliefs.
If you’re ready to mend the pain of your past, find power in your difference, and live an authentic life full of confidence — this handbook will guide you, step by step.
