LAHORE: Pakistani-American author Iram Gilani on Monday released her book in digital book Silent No More: An Intimate Portrait of How Trauma Affects Us All.
The self-published book explores the suffering of trauma, survival through it and how it affects us all and what can be done to deal with it.
Ms Gilani touches upon the tumultuous landscape of trauma as a whole and the way social forces shape human behaviour across time and culture.
The book provides an insight into the influences inflicted by traumas, on yourself and the others and the author does so by drawing upon her own experiences, making it a realistic and relatable read.
Talking about her work, Ms Gilani said she had written the book to empower others and expressed hope that the book would inspire others to unburden themselves from the weight of carrying it all alone.
“I want those who are suffering to know they are not alone and I understand their pain because I have been in their shoes.”
Iram Gilani said she had shared some very personal techniques and anyone could implement them in their lives to make a positive change, which would help them regain their strength and overcome their unfortunate circumstances.
The book is available with two free downloadable options in the form of an e-book and audio book on the author’s website: IramGilani.com. The hardcover copy of the book will also become available in the near future.
