Overview

Terrible events are very hard to deal with. Those who undergo catastrophic life experiences often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They may become numb and isolated from those around them, or grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down.
Traumatic stress responses are psychological conditions that result from a person's coping resources having been completely overwhelmed by a frightening or agonizing experience. In this very readable self help guide, Claudia Herbert and Ann Wetmore apply proven techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which works to change negative patterns of thought, to help sufferers, their families, and those who work with them to overcome the physical, mental, and emotional reactions of traumatic stress.
