I hope this
finds you well. The PTPN has been busy over the last couple of months.
We have started a new call-in discussion group and I recently had the
pleasure of interviewing TMS author and practitioner, Nicole Sachs,
LCSW. We also hosted our first webinar of the year with guest, Alan
Gordon, LCSW. Education is the key to overcoming PPD, and we
are continuing our mission of providing people with the resources they
need to learn about PPD and develop the tools necessary to get

Pain Cycle: A Special Webinar with Alan Gordon, LCSW
March 18th we hosted our first special webinar event
of 2013 with Alan Gordon. Alan spoke at our first ever
PPD webinar in June of last year, and returned to speak for a
second time at another webinar that summer.
Like the past two webinars, Alan spoke with
callers and provided feedback about their
PPD recovery. For this webinar, Alan
focused specifically on overcoming anxiety and changing the
response to fear. There are two ways to listen to this event:
the full length recording or by mini-session.
For over a year the PTPN has been hosting weekly, text-based, drop-in
chats for people with PPD. They have become such a great success that
we began a weekly
book discussion group, starting an hour before the regular
drop-in chats at 2 PM EST.
This new group meets on our teleconference line and discusses a new
theme or book each week. So far we have discussed When the
Body Says No, by Gabor Mate, The Great Pain
Deception, by Steve Ozanich, and Pathways to Pain
Relief, by Frances Sommer Anderson and Eric Sherman. In our
last meeting we discussed the role anger plays in developing TMS. To

I recently sat
down with PPD author Nicole Sachs, LCSW to discuss her
experience with PPD. Nicole was a past panelist on Dr. Sarno's Alumni
Panels, and has recently written the book, The
Meaning of Truth. She is a graduate of the
University of St. Thomas, and has been practicing in Delaware for 10
years. To view the video click below:

Frances Sommer Anderson, PhD, SEP; and Eric
Sherman, PsyD, recently published a new
PPD book entitled, Pathways
to Pain Relief. This new publication is the first
PPD book written by any of the psychologists closest
to Dr. Sarno, who also wrote the foreword to the book. It
provides an in depth analysis of the psychology behind
PPD through the use of several case studies, and is helpful to
both practitioners and patients alike.
The book also served as the topic of discussion at our most recent Peer
Supervision Teleconference, which featured Dr. Anderson as the guest
speaker. We will be continuing this discussion in July, when Eric
Sherman will be presenting.
Pathways to Pain Relief can be purchased as an e-book on Amazon.com.
