Book Description

March 8 2013 New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook
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.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an extremely debilitating anxiety condition that can occur after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal. Although many know that this mental health issue affects veterans of war, many may not know that it also affects victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, natural disasters, crime, car accidents and accidents in the workplace. No matter the cause of their illness, people with PTSD will often relive their traumatic experience in the form of flashbacks, memories, nightmares, and frightening thoughts. This is especially true when they are exposed to events or objects that remind them of their trauma. Left untreated, PTSD can lead to emotional numbness, insomnia, addiction, anxiety, depression, and even suicide.

In 'The PTSD Workbook, Second Edition', psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula outline techniques and interventions used by PTSD experts from around the world to offer trauma survivors the most effective tools available to conquer their most distressing trauma-related symptoms, whether they are a veteran, a rape survivor, or a crime victim. Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the book is extremely accessible and easy-to-use, offering evidence-based therapy at a low cost. 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 book is designed to arm PTSD survivors with the emotional resilience they need to get their lives back together after a traumatic event.

5.0 out of 5 stars The PTSD Workbook Oct. 25 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a good book that is challenging and rewarding for PTSDers to read and work through. The cautions and reminders to take care of oneself while working through the exercises are helpful. There is lots of information presented about PTSD in a very readable fashion. If a survivor of trauma had to work through those experiences and the resulting symptoms of PTSD alone, this is definitely a good place to start. I like to use some of the exercises with my teenage clients who are dealing with trauma-related symptoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars The PTSD Workbook Sept. 18 2008
Format:Paperback
I am presently in Private Practice and have been faced, recently, with a number of clients who are dealing with PTSD. I have found this workbook to be a wonderful tool for my clients to work through in conjunction with their counselling sessions. They have reported it to be really useful in helping them understand what they are experiencing and to normalize those feelings, both physical and emotional. When used in conjuction with professional counselling, I have found that it has expedited the healing process. I recommend it as long as a professional counsellor or psychotherapist is working through it with the person experiencing PTSD. It is a wonderful tool for a professional to have in their arsenal.
