Project update - August

Happy August!

In exciting news, I'm happy to report that more than 500 people have come to the website since it was launched in June.

In even more exciting news, letters have started coming in from people who are recovering from the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes, the 2009 Victorian fires, the 2011 Margaret River fires and the 2013 Tasman Peninsula fires. These letters discuss what has been helpful and unhelpful in recovery, and are rich in detail and very insightful. Each participant provides unique perspectives on the complexity of recovery, and I'd like to thank everyone who has taken the time to write a letter so far.

I'm not intending on using this update as a place to get into the nitty gritty of the process of analysis, but if you want to know more, get in touch and I'm happy to provide more information.

If you are interested in writing a letter about what has been helpful and unhelpful in your recovery experience, I'd love to hear from you. Visit or email me at for more information.
