In this interview, which took place before the books were sent, Dr. Gary Huffaker and Reggie discuss the role of narrative in healing--how honestly owning our story(ies), and learning how to tell a truthful story that helps us heal, rather than one that keeps us stuck, are essential steps for anyone interested in personal and/or cultural healing.
