Gifts in Dark Packages
How to Embrace Adversity and Transform Your Life
In a storyteller, self-help style, Catherine Clark, a trauma therapist with more than 20 years of experience, recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she writes about her mental health struggles, overcoming a life-threatening tumor, being pregnant with a broken leg, the grief of losing a father at a young age, and the heartbreak of two failed marriages.
A resiliency expert, Catherine normalizes mental health disorders and provides the reader with an easy-to-use “Gift Yourself” Resiliency Toolkit that has been field-tested while working in suicide intervention in the Canadian Arctic. In this inspiring, empowering book, Catherine draws on personal and client stories that invite the reader to explore the depths of their dark packages and rise above any adversity. Not only will you laugh out loud, but you will walk away with the toolkit needed to move from the edge of breakdown to a breakthrough — to a whole new YOU!
