Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 On April 12, 2013, I was working at a radio station when I heard about a possible shooter on the campus of a university in North Carolina. I was terrified, but I thought about how my wedding was only a few weeks away, and I couldn’t wait. #2 I was working at a community college in Virginia when I heard a gunshot. I ducked underneath my desk, and saw blood dripping onto the floor. I didn’t know whose blood it was. #3 I was shot in the left hand, and as I slipped my engagement ring off and put it in my pocket, I knew I was hurt. I was trapped in a room with a door that I couldn’t lock, and a man with a gun stood on the other side. I prayed to die quickly. #4 I was in a closet with my back against the door, terrified. I was wounded and bleeding, and I didn’t know if anyone was hurt or not. I heard voices, and thought it was a good sign.

From a young age, Ali Rothrock fell head over heels in love with firefighting. But when she entered the fire service, she was ostracized by those who weren't willing to accept a girl into their ranks. Constant microaggressions, overt sexism, and instances of sexual violence wore her down until she no longer believed she could safely exist in the world. The trauma of her experiences eventually resulted in a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder, and that diagnosis was a first step toward healing. In the years since, Ali has worked as a domestic violence and sexual assault counselor, an advocate for abused children, an inspirational speaker, and a crisis counselor for first responders. On her journey of recovery, she has collected other people's stories of resilience. After Trauma explores the fallout from trauma, the ripples those experiences have on our lives, and finally, a path toward healing. After Trauma is a story of adversity, grit, defiance, choice, and hope. Each chapter offers a lesson to help readers overcome their own trauma, including concrete and actionable advice on how to re-story a life after adversity. We all have the ability to re-define ourselves, to feel hope about what lies ahead, and to choose our own way forward.
