Therapeutic Healing

This website is intended for people and professionals wanting to know more about personal healing and growth following a disability. Far too often, disability has been perceived and described as a negative event but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially given the fact that many learn to view their situation in a much more positive light. Positive coping following disability means that people learn to deal with, move past, and rise above their situation so they can strive to create the life they seek.

Dr. Stuntzner is an Assistant Professor at University of Idaho – Coeur d’Alene in the Rehabilitation Counseling and Human Services Program. She is devoted to helping people and professionals understand the experience of disability from a holistic perspective and to assist them in learning more about the positive side of life following disability and in creating the best life possible.
