A Holistic Guide from a Licensed Therapist and Trauma Survivor
Overcoming the shattering impacts of trauma is a hero’s journey. Here is a book written in everyday language that describes the challenges of coping with trauma, provides self-care tools, speaks frankly about therapy and medications (as well as alternatives), addresses important spiritual issues, and offers hope. The author, a psychotherapist, speaks here as someone who has taken the journey from helplessness to mastery.
With innovative insight into trauma-related difficulties, this book helps you:
- Understand trauma and its devastating impacts
- Identify symptoms of trauma(dissociation, numbing, etc.) and common mental health problems that stem from trauma
- Manage traumatic reactions and memories that arise
- Create a more balanced life that supports your recovery
- Select appropriate interventions (therapies, self-help groups, medications and alternatives)
- Recognize how far you’ve come in your healing and what you need to keep growing.
Complete with exercises, healing stories, points to remember, and resources, this is a perfect companion for anyone seeking to reclaim their life from the devastating impacts of trauma.
