Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. I, No.1)

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (7/09)

I believe that the first edition of “Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing,” will be truly transformational for its readers.  The journal consists of a variety of articles that address issues involving recovering from trauma, grief, forgiveness, health issues, and substance abuse.  In addition to the essays, there are also a poetry, fiction, and reviews sections. 

I truly enjoyed reading all of the articles.  I found information that would benefit me both as a counselor and as a human being.  Several of the articles were written by inspirational authors whose books have already had an impact on my life.  I really enjoyed being able to read more of their thoughts.  Something that I found that stood out in this journal is the human element that is incorporated into each essay.  In addition to imparting their knowledge to us, the writers also share their personal experiences with the topic at hand.  This made what I read so much more meaningful to me.

I highly recommend a subscription to this journal, “Recovering the Self,” for professionals who are in the counseling profession or who deal with crisis situations. Readers involved with the healing process will also really enjoy this journal and feel inspired to continue on.  The topics covered in the first journal alone, will motivate you to continue reading books on the subject matter presented.  Guaranteed.

Recovering The Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. II, No.1) (Paperback)

Recovering the Self, a Journal of Hope and Healing, Vol. 11, No. 1 is an awesome quarterly literary journal from Ernest Dempsey for people who are struggling w/some life problem and looking for like-minded individuals and others who understand. Contributors come from around the world and from all kinds of specialities like psychologists and life coaches as well as nurses, poets, essayists and and people like you and me who have lived and learned. Each article is short but full of valuable insight. The art and the poetry add more than I can say. More people should know about this journal. It can help them be more comfortable in the knowledge that they aren't alone, and others share tough, scary challenges. I don't know if this approach exists anywhere else than in this quarterly journal. That's invaluable knowledge, and it can help change peoples' lives.
