The PTSD Workbook: Simple, Effective Techniques for Overcoming Traumatic Stress Symptoms
|Author:||SOILI MARY BETH & POIJULA WILLIAMS|
In The PTSD Workbook, Second Edition, psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula offer the most effective tools available for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this fully revised and updated edition, readers will learn how to determine the type of trauma they have experienced, identify their symptoms, and learn the most effective strategies they can use to overcome these symptoms. This new edition features chapters focusing on veterans with PTSD, the link between cortisol and adrenaline and its role in PTSD and overall mental health, and the mind-body component of PTSD.
"This revised workbook is based on the latest research, but written with the same warmth and wisdom that informs the first edition. It is a classic for those who live with severe trauma on an ongoing basis."
