“Katherine Thompson knows a lot about suffering. As a mental health social worker and psychotherapist, she deals with pain and problems, particularly among teenagers and young adults, on a daily basis.

In addition to hands-on practice, she has also spent the past 15 years researching youth mental health.

But it is Katherine’s own personal experience of suffering that makes her new book, The Discipline of Suffering: Redeeming Our Stories of Pain, one of the most powerful and practical resources on this topic to date.”
