Description

This workbook offers the most effective tools and strategies - recommended by PTSD experts worldwide - to help readers conquer trauma-related symptoms. PTSD is an extremely debilitating anxiety disorder that can occur after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal in which grave physical harm occurred or was threatened. Often individuals with PTSD repeatedly reexperience the ordeal in the form of flashback episodes, recurring memories, nightmares, or frightening thoughts. PTSD symptoms include emotional numbness and sleep disturbances, poor concentration, depression, anxiety, and irritability or outbursts of anger. In The PTSD Workbook, two psychologists gather together techniques and interventions used by PTSD experts from around the world to offer trauma survivors the most effective tools available to conquer their most distressing trauma-related symptoms. Readers determine the type of trauma they experienced, identify their symptoms, and learn the most effective techniques and interventions they can use to overcome them.

Review quote

"This excellent workbook, based on a rich body of research, will be helpful to anyone who has experienced a sudden, incomprehensible event or suffered lifelong abuse. The authors have provided readers with a clear, comprehensive explanation of trauma, accompanied by practical yet creative exercises to help them manage their trauma symptoms. It's also a valuable resource for clinicians as well as members of the general public striving to understand trauma and return to everyday functioning."
