Life After Trauma: A Workbook for Healing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This workbook for survivors of trauma emphasizes strategies for coping in the present and does not ask readers to dwell on the traumatic experience itself. Brief vignettes are noted with a symbol so that readers can skip them if they are too distressing. Readers will find strategies for self-care focusing on five basic psychological needs: safety, trust, control, self esteem, and intimacy. Worksheet pages provide space for responding to questionnaires and exercises. Scripts for relaxation and visualization exercises are also included. This second edition contains a new section on managing emotions through mindfulness, and a new appendix on taking care of yourself in healthcare settings. Other appendices list recommended books and articles as well as web sites of US, UK, and Australian organizations. Also provided are tips on how mental health professionals can use the workbook. Rosenbloom is a clinical psychologist in private practice. Williams is an instructor for the Office for Victims of Crime at the US Department of Justice.
