From Unthinkable Loss to Unbreakable Resilience

In Keep Breathing, Dr. Kate Truitt, a renowned psychologist, applied neuroscientist, and trauma expert, shares her story of unimaginable loss, trauma, and, ultimately, healing. Faced with the sudden, gut-wrenching death of her fianc just one week before their wedding day, Kate found her world shattered, catapulting her into a deep void of profound grief, trauma, shock, and guilt.

Part memoir and part scientific exploration, Keep Breathing uses Kate's own personal account as a case study to illuminate the common experiences in our human brain--deep love and devastating loss, exhilaration and pain, life and death--that have the power to both derail our lives and ignite us to rebuild, heal, and grow. Her deeply personal loss sheds light on the human spirit's extraordinary ability to persevere and thrive in the face of suffering--providing readers with a roadmap to navigate their own paths to healing and self-discovery. With its raw yet warm candor, Kate's brave storytelling exemplifies what it means to truly come back to ourselves.
