Dedicated 'In loving memory of the 26 beautiful lives lost on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary, and for all those who need love and healing!'

Giustra-Kozek's book provides a methodical approach to understanding the underlying causes of mental disorders that plague so many young people, including Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza.

As a psychotherapist for Sandy Hook families and first responders she states,

"I know firsthand of the devastation and anguish these disorders bring to a person's life. I feel strongly that the wrong medical response to Adam Lanza's (autism) spectrum disorder may have contributed to this devastating tragedy."

In her book's introduction, Giustra-Kozek wrote,

As a psychotherapist for 15 years treating, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and related disorders, I witnessed that most medical practitioner's focus on medication as the primary treatment option and I've also witnessed the many harmful effects."

She wrote that having worked for over a decade in the world of mainstream medicine she possesses a strong understanding of both its strengths and weaknesses.

As a mom who fiercely loves my son, I explored all available options, eventually finding better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered."

"Healing Without Hurting, provides effective natural treatments and solutions that work.

Her son's notable improvements and her work as a therapist inspired her to educate other parents and to help shift current medical practices.

Giustra-Kozek shares non-pharmaceutical 'tried and true' alternatives.

In her introduction, Giustra-Kozek instructs,

"Everyone is different and requires individual care. So, rather than provide just one solution, I'll cover a full menu of natural treatment options that I discovered in my quest to help my son."

Her Facebook page, "Healing ADHD & Asperger's Without Hurting" has a large following from all over the world seeking support and help.

She also joined the Sandy Hook Promise movement and the Holistic Moms Network working to inspire change in the community regarding mental illnesses.

Additionally, her columns have been published in magazines that include Natural Mother Magazine, Wise Mom Magazine, Autism File Magazine, and Fearless Parent.

The book is available from www.amazon.com/Healing-without-Hurting-Effectively-Medications/dp/0989452980
