Growing Beyond Survival: A Self-Help Toolkit for Managing Traumatic Stressby Elizabeth G. Vermilyea
Growing Beyond Survival is a
self-management workbook, which teaches skills that empower survivors to
take control of and de-escalate their most distressing trauma related
symptoms. Developed with input from survivor advocates in Maine, New York,
and Maryland, and with the support of the Departments of Mental Health in
the states of Maine and New York, this self-help toolkit is both
comprehensive and flexible.
This versatile workbook can be used as an independent self-help program, in the context of individual therapy, or in a group setting. It teaches trauma survivors to recognize, contextualize, and understand distressing dissociative and posttraumatic reactions. It also creates a structure in which to learn and practice skills for self-regulation of the troublesome thoughts, feelings, and impulses related to traumatic experiences.
