ISSTD Fellow Pens Book Chapter on Gratitude

ISSTD Fellow Ericha Scott has recently published a book chapter on gratitude entitled Gratitude in Times of Despair: Paradoxes for Wholeness, in the upcoming Kate Butler edited book: Moments That Matter: Defining Moments That Shifted Everything.

Ericha’s book chapter was developed from an article she wrote in the magazine, The Sober World. However, Ericha reports that in this chapter she is further developing the concept: “This time I take the practice of writing affirmations, gratitude lists, and the ubiquitous concept of the power of positive thinking a step further to embrace paradoxes for authenticity, wholeness, fulfillment, and empowerment.”

Moments That Matter is a collection of short stories that illuminate the extraordinary impact of seemingly ordinary moments, with twenty authors contributing a chapter each. This is Ericha’s fourth book chapter in the past year, with the others being published in bestselling collections!

Moments that Matter is available from Amazon.
