Traumatised teens have already been through so much. They see the world through the blistered frame of their past life experiences and challenges. Sharing their stories, their feelings and their inner-most fears is such an important part of the healing process. In (Ad)verse author, trauma specialist and accomplished poet Matt Gardner gives a voice to the countless severely traumatised teens that he has helped guide and support over many years. IT WAS THEIR LIVES, THEIR REALITY, THEIR EVERYDAY... But it was my words and together we share the stories in this book.show more

About MR Matt Gardner

Matt Gardner's poetry is a little untamed, sometimes a little unorthodox and absolutely always packed to overflowing with meaning and story. Then again, coming away from those intense and often dangerous years on the front line of trauma work, rehabilitation and Aboriginal empowerment, it's impossible not to look at things at least a little differently. Inspired by his experiences, Matt's work is a mixture of uplifting moments, deep appreciation for those small things in our everyday, and crystal clear reflection. His work is highly emotive, much like the man himself, and his ability to capture a complex feeling in words is second to none.show more
