“WellWriting” is a form of expressive writing or journaling that has been shown to improve health.

WellWriting for Health will show you five simple WellWriting Ways you can follow to transform your life from being stuck as a survivor to thriving as a victor.

"This is a very compelling book. I like the voice and the examples from Dr. Taliaferro's life in emergency medicine."

--Jennie Walsh
Parkland Hospital Foundation, Dallas

"This delightful book was a surprise: pithy and full of nuggets. The writing is crystal clear and the wisdom in the book is very gently communicated. This self-help book is needed and welcome. The book tells about other resources that the reader can use to learn even more about health after trauma and abuse."

--Perri O'Shaughnessy
New York Times best-selling author
