Bell is a sociologist and economist who specializes in disaster recovery projects. He is also the CEO of Landmark Research Group, LLC. He's been a consultant for hundreds of catastrophes, include the biggest tragedies of our time: the World Trade Center attack, Sandy Hook, Hurricane Katrina, the Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test sites, the BP Oil spill, the OJ Simpson trial, the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, and "Heaven's Gate," to name a few. Through the years he has met with countless survivors and noted how some have healed better than others. This led him to study the cycle of human trauma and develop strategies to cope and heal.

In this conversation with Watching America host Dr. Alan Campbell, he discusses his book Post-Traumatic Thriving: The Art, Science, & Stories of Resilience, which focuses on dealing with trauma and using it as a fuel for prosperity.
