Stefanie Hofer on Post-Traumatic Writing
A 2015 issue of the journal American Imago featured four essays focused on grief and loss. The issue, titled "Memory and Remembrance: Essays in Psychoanalytic Autobiography", contains "Lockout: Spacing Trauma and Recovery in the Aftermath of the Virginia Tech Shootings," an essay written by Virginia Tech University faculty, Stefanie Hofer. She lost her husband, Jamie Bishop, on April 16, 2007 during the deadliest school rampage in the US history. Hofer joined us to talk about her post-traumatic writing and how it has helped her to persevere and heal.
