In a month or so, I’ll be teaching students in my English 1A courses about medical humanities and sharing my blog with them. Then in my colleague Dylan Eret’s Humanities class, I’ll lead a writing exercise about scars and discuss my experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. At classes and presentations, I give out a list of resources that I’ve compiled. In thinking about all this, I realize that I’ve never shared this list on my blog. I’ve mentioned many of these sources in my previous posts but thought it might be a good idea to present them all to you in one place. So here goes:
