Gillian Stevens is the author of Explore, Transform, Flourish- Support and Hope for Those Who Help Others: How Professionals Keep It Together. She believes the rising incidence of addiction, mental health concerns, suicide, PTSD and chronic disease strongly suggests we are being called to “do it differently”, to affect a much needed shift in the health of our society.
A former secondary school teacher and guidance counselor, Gillian advocates for education around grief, trauma, addiction and mental health for all of us so that we might work more compassionately and efficiently.
Stop the Insanity of These Challenging Times and Make a Change!
- You are a retired secondary school teacher and guidance counsellor, what led you to write a book about – and for – those who help?
- In the research for your book, you interviewed 30 individuals representing many occupations and discovered that PTSD is becoming more prevalent within many professions. What other similarities did you discover consistent among the individuals you interviewed?
- Why is it so important, yet so challenging, for those in the helping professions to take care of themselves?
- The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. What then is the way to stop the insanity of these challenging times?
How can we live the flourishing life we deserve?
