NEW: What was the inspiration for the Survivor Psalm?

Frank Ochberg reads the "Survivor Psalm." The Psalm in the form of a bookmark has been distributed to thousands of trauma survivors. Frank wrote the psalm after working with victims of crime, and wanting a statement that would reflect a state of mind after therapy was completed.

length: 1:53

Dr. Frank Ochberg, GFW's Founder testified in Cleveland for the prosecution in the Castro case. Here is a video clip and a short article.

I am very proud of the work he has done in this case. I am hoping that this case will bring forth a nationwide conversation about the women and men in this country who have been abused behind closed doors.

Respectfully, Joyce Boaz, Director.

NEW DVD: Making Peace with Chronic PTSD -- Marla's Story

Marla Handy has nothing to hide -- anymore. She is a college teacher, a professional consultant and a happily married, resilient woman. But she was terribly mistreated as a child, sexually assaulted as a young adult, and burdened by chronic PTSD for decades. In an intimate conversation with trauma expert Frank Ochberg, MD, she explains how she manages her complex trauma and chronic PTSD symptoms. Marla Handy is the author of "No Comfort Zone: Notes on Living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder," published by Mocassa Press and available on Amazon.
