how Heroes Heal: a New book by Marilyn Wooley, PHD

Many thanks to Marilyn Wooley, Ph.D., for discussing her new book, How Heroes Heal. Dr. Wooley has extensive expertise in treating first responders like emergency medical technicians, firefighters, police officers, and others first to arrive at natural or man-made disasters. The human catastrophes they witness regularly may upset the psyche of even the most experienced professionals. Many first-responders develop PTSD, which may be severe enough to destroy their home lives and careers. Dr. Wooley shares her treatment approach, which has evolved after decades of experience.
