The Day I Died: Brain Trauma and the Journey Back tells the story of a psychologist and registered nurse who had a massive, near-fatal injury while ski racing with her daughter. This is a riveting story about the trauma and healing of a brave and indomitable woman. Dr. Petiet's extensive education and expertise enable her to turn her personal tale into an inspirational account that instructs us all, especially when we face the arduous task of recovery from trauma, or when we support people-personally or professionally-as they heal.
Carole Petiet, PhD, SEP, RN, is a clinical psychologist, registered nurse, and accomplished athlete. She weaves together a detailed account of recovery from trauma using the threads of her own experiences and insights she has gained from four decades spent working as a helping professional.
