Stay Present: A Child, A Diagnosis, A Family’s Way Forward
IFS therapist Libby Gell takes the reader on a journey through her infant granddaughter’s brain tumor treatment, told from the perspectives of IFS therapist, mother, grandmother, and spiritual traveler. Stay Present chronicles the humbling experience of a therapist coming to acknowledge and honor her own Parts as well as those of family members while navigating the pain and trauma of a family medical crisis.
Though a daunting topic at times, this is an uplifting and hopeful read, displaying family solidarity, love, humor, and (hopefully) some wisdom which should console and help guide others going through crisis. Endorsed by Stephen Porges, Chris Burris, and Paul Ginter.
