If you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), you know how debilitating the symptoms can be. Many times, people with PTSD will suffer flashbacks, have intense nightmares and difficulty sleeping, and may feel angry, anxious, and constantly “on alert.”  Living with PTSD is extremely difficult, but there are ways that you can manage your symptoms and, in time, recover.
 
In The iRest Program for Healing PTSD, clinical psychologist and yogic scholar Richard C. Miller—named one of the top twenty-five yoga teachers by Yoga Journal—offers an innovative and proven-effective ten-step yoga program for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The deep relaxation meditations in this book will help you overcome the common symptoms of PTSD, such as anxiety, insomnia, and depression, and maintain emotional stability so that you can return to living a full, meaningful life.
 
The authors iRest protocol is an integrative approach that heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind. It recognizes the underlying sense of calm that is always present, even amidst all changing circumstances of life. Extensive research has shown that iRest effectively supports the healing process across a broad range of populations. Currently, there are iRest programs in military hospitals across the US, as well as in correctional facilities, hospices, clinics, schools, and organizations supporting personal growth and well-being. iRest has been endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General and Defense Centers of Excellence as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
 
If you are ready to start healing from your trauma and get back to living the life you once knew—a life free from fear, anxiety, and sleepless nights—this book will help you find your way. To find out more about Richard C. Miller and the iRest program, visit www.irest.us.

This is THE best workbook I've found to do with trauma/PTSD! (And I have a fair library of them.) It's the main one I recommend, particularly in that it deals very well not only with various symptoms of PTSD, but also with teaching techniques such as specific ways of dealing with flashbacks/memories- not one way, but a number of them, so that the reader has options to chose from.

I'm also really impressed that it deals extensively with Complex-PTSD, and the further chapters of the book are focused on that and the deeper problems arising from that (they're also quite useful to the reader who doesn't have C-PTSD, as they're on topics like anger, dealing with intense emotions, self-harm, etc.). There's extremely little out there for the lay-person dealing with C-PTSD, and this is actually *useful*!

I am grateful for the thoughtful, helpful, supportive structure of this post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd) workbook. Working through it is imparting skills I've heard mentioned or described, never understanding what was meant. This book goes a long way toward helping one navigate past (unfinished) trauma. I'm recommending it to friends, not least for the compassionate way it approaches ingrained fear of facing old trauma.
