Healing the Invisible Wounds of Trauma: A Columbine Survivor’s Story(April 2, 2019)

How does someone recover from the worst school shooting in U.S. history?

On April 20, 1999, Kristen (Long) Krueger survived the Columbine High School shooting, which took the lives of thirteen people plus the two teenaged shooters. For the next five years, Kristen lived in a fog. Then she decided she was ready to grow, heal, and rebuild her life.

In Healing the Invisible Wounds of Trauma, Kristen recounts her story of the tragic events of that day and the brave steps she made to find healing and freedom. She explains

  • Time does not heal all wounds
  • The symptoms and struggles of PTSD are normal, not pathological
  • People react to their trauma in different ways

Krueger demystifies the misunderstandings and distortions about trauma, bridging the gap between what professionals and talking heads want you to believe and the truth from a survivor.

Your true identity―including your past―lies on the other side of your healing. Kristen Krueger shows you how to find it.
