Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If youve experienced a traumatic event, you may feel a wide range of emotions, such as anxiety, anger, fear, and depression. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to react to trauma; but there are ways that you can heal from your experience, and uncover your own capacity for resilience, growth, and recovery.

Overcoming Trauma and PTSD offers proven-effective treatments based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you overcome both the physical and emotional symptoms of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This book will help you find relief from painful flashbacks, insomnia, or other symptoms you might be experiencing. Also included are worksheets, checklists, and exercises to help you start feeling better and begin your journey on the road to recovery.

This book will help you manage your anxiety and stop avoiding certain situations, cope with painful memories and nightmares, and determine if you need to see a therapist. Perhaps most importantly, it will help you to develop a support system so that you can you heal and move forward.

Synopsis:

In Overcoming Trauma and PTSD, the most effective skills from evidence-based therapies including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are integrated into one approach for overcoming the effects of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Synopsis:

Post-traumatic stress disorder affects every sufferer in a different way. A veteran who committed atrocities during war may not benefit from cognitive treatments in the same way a victim of sexual assault might. For each type of trauma, there is an appropriate type of treatment—and the best treatment may not lie entirely within one therapeutic modality. Written by a psychologist who specializes in trauma, Overcoming Trauma and PTSD combines the best of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). By offering the best skills for specific symptoms, readers get the quickest relief from flashbacks, insomnia, and other symptoms, and the best chance of recovery. This workbook includes worksheets, checklists, and exercises that focus on common elements underlying ACT, DBT, and CBT. Readers practice emotional and situational exposure, behavioral change, increasing interpersonal functioning, and mindfulness, and eventually use this integrative approach to calm their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
