A 21st century look at addiction and recovery, Beyond Belief is the first daily reflection written for everyone, regardless of ones worldview. Over 500,000 daily reflection books are bought every year. There are specialty books for women, men, youth, newcomers, people who love addicts/alcoholics and substance or process specific addictions. Beyond Belief is the first in the genre that includes humanists, agnostics and atheist into the Twelve Step/Twelve Tradition dialogue. Drawing on philosophy, psychology, art, science, the wisdom of the rooms and existing Twelve Step and recovery literature ,Beyond Belief offers 365 one day musings with a 21st century slant at life in recovery. An index of over one hundred subjects, end notes and a bibliography offer readers extensive resources if they have a more in-depth appetite for a certain subject than offered by a one-page thought for the day. John McAndrew, MDiv of Sensible Spirituality Associates, Palm Springs CA says, "Thank you Joe for this wonderful place to start each day. No arguments about God, no belief systems to defend or attack--just a wealth of rich, thoughtful reflections." Ernest Kurtz, author of Experiencing Spirituality and Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous, says, "The book is aimed at a general 12-Step readership, but it is mindful that there heretofore exists no such aids for unbelievers, freethinkers, and the unconventionally spiritual. Given that the latest Pew survey found that twenty percent of American people list their religion as 'None,' it is certainly time that the Recovery world took into consideration this population's needs. Beyond Belief addressees that need in a confident, non-aggressive way. I doubt that any believer will find anything objectionable in its pages. This believer, for one, finds much that is spiritually helpful.".

Victor Volkman has created a tool that takes the mystery out of one of the more remarkably effective clinical procedures in a way that can help millions of people revitalize and improve their lives. To those desperate people who have experienced trauma or tragedy, this process is a pathway to dealing with their feelings and getting on with their lives. In the new book Beyond Trauma, Conversations on Traumatic Incident Reduction Volkman presents a series of conversations with a wide range of people from many different backgrounds and experiences. Each provides his or her perspective on Traumatic Incident Reduction, or TIR for short. The book explains the techniques used by professionals and patients to help people sort out, resolve and overcome the negative effects of painful suffering. Untold countless people have to deal with trauma in a wide variety of situations: Soldiers who experience war or injury, families dealing with death, chemical or substance abuse, parental neglect, child or sexual abuse, terrorism, crime and punishment. Beyond Trauma: Conversations on Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), is unique in that it addresses both people suffering from the effects of traumatic stress and the practitioners who help them. This method has been effective in dealing with many areas of trauma, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in such diverse groups as veterans, children, 9/11 survivors, motor vehicle accident and sexual abuse survivors. TIR is a brief, one-on-one, non-hypnotic, person-centered, simple, and highly structured method for permanently eliminating the negative effects of past traumas. Contributors include world-renowned experts in traumatology including Windy Dryden, Ph.D., Joyce Carbonell, Ph.D., and TIR's developer Frank A. Gerbode, M.D. Beyond Trauma highlights stories of TIR helping survivors to regain control of their lives.
