This week’s “Weekend Reading” comes to us from Michele Rosenthal, creator of the award-winning Heal My PTSD and host of Seaview Radio’s Your Life After Trauma.

You might remember Michele from the fantastic interview she gave Celebrity Psychings a few years ago regarding PTSD in entertainment media – including Kevin McKidd‘s role as Owen Hunt on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Aaaaand, you might remember Carre Otis from Guess and Calvin Klein ads –

- or Playboy and Sports Illustrated, depending on what you’re into.

After battling a troubled marriage to Mickey Rourke, drug abuse, and an eating disorder, the super model and actress spent some time regaining balance and serenity. She chronicles it all in her tell-all Beauty, Disrupted: A Memoir, which she released back in October 2011.

So, why does Michele think we should give it a shot?

In BEAUTY, DISRUPTED Carre Otis gives us an inside look at many different kinds of traumas. From sexual assault to domestic violence to an eating disorder she unflinchingly allows us to see what happens when a person finds herself into places that are destructive and harmful. She also equally shows us a beautiful path to healing, from a spiritual journey to falling in love to starting a family Carre shares with us a journey that shows courage, creativity, compassion and above all, a life-affirming purpose of being and becoming the change you wish to see in the world.
