Transform pain and powerlessness into peace, purpose, and possibility with this powerful guided journal.

Have you experienced or witnessed an event that violated your core values and beliefs? Do you find yourself struggling with deep, lasting psychological and spiritual pain as you try to navigate the aftermath? Are you crippled by guilt or shame, or unable to trust others as a result? If so, you may be suffering from moralinjury. The wounds caused by experiencing such serious transgressions can leave you with a debilitating sense of powerlessness, hopelessness, and despair--and it can feel as if you're wounded in your very "soul." In order to heal these invisible wounds, it's necessary to discover, process, and repair the moral aspects of your trauma--so you can get back to living a meaningful life, in step with your values and beliefs.

This gentle guided journal introduces a breakthrough, evidence-based writing program for healing moral injury to help you transform pain and powerlessness into peace, purpose, and possibility. Grounded in embodied disclosure therapy (EDT)--a treatment created specifically for moral injury--Writing the Wrongs offers a safe, structured space to process trauma on your own terms, at your own pace. Using a variety of journaling prompts, you'll carefully explore your trauma with an eye toward discovering meaning in your experience--so you can minimize triggers, maintain calm, and begin to heal.

There are times when our life experiences don't align with our deepest values, and this can cause immense distress and emotional pain. This journal will help you work through these experiences and feelings, and guide you safely and gently toward a place of genuine healing.

Written by renowned mental health and wellness experts, New Harbinger's Journals for Change combine evidence-based psychology with proven-effective guided journaling techniques to help you make lasting personal change--one page at a time.
