Welcome to episode 74 of the Therapy Chat Podcast with host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C. This week’s guest features E. Anna Goodwin. Anna is a psychotherapist and lecturer turned writer and professional speaker.  Anna applies her extensive knowledge and experience with those suffering from trauma and stress in her highly-acclaimed book, “How to Cope with Stress After a Trauma: Especially for Veterans, their Families, and Friends.”

Anna also co-authored a renowned textbook for counselors and psychologists entitled “Sandplay Therapy: A Step-by-Step Manual for Psychotherapists of Diverse Orientations” and is now writing psychological suspense using her extensive knowledge of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. She lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

At present Anna is writing a fiction trilogy under her penname Ana Parker Goodwin about what she loves most: a mixture of psychology and mystery/suspense. Why is she writing fiction? Simple. She can create her own ending to a story, which she could not do in real life. Forbidden Justice deals with the wildly disparate views of “memory” in the field of psychology today.

What is real? What is not? Her heroine, Dr. Faythe Bradington, Clinical Psychologist, is shocked to discover that a prestigious but unscrupulous law firm has filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against her. One of her ex-clients is accusing her of implanting false memories of childhood abuse. Why? Faythe is sure she is innocent. :

In this episode, you will her discuss her work around sandplay / sandtray therapy, how it can be used by therapists and working with people suffering with PTSD.
