Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This excellent workbook, based on a rich body of research, will be helpful to anyone who has experienced a sudden, incomprehensible event or suffered lifelong abuse. The authors have provided readers with a clear, comprehensive explanation of trauma, accompanied by practical yet creative exercises to help them manage their trauma symptoms. It’s also a valuable resource for clinicians as well as members of the general public striving to understand trauma and return to everyday functioning.”
Betty Stevens-Guille, PhD, CPsych, trauma specialist, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

“For those who believe that they will never feel ‘normal’ after a traumatic event, this workbook provides many techniques that survivors can use to jump-start their recovery…an extremely important tool for growth and strength.”
James D. Baxendale, PhD, CTS

The PTSD Workbook, Second Edition, is an excellent resource for those directly affected by a critical or traumatic event, as well as for professionals working in the trauma field. Filled to the brink with concrete, helpful tools and useful information, it will guide the reader in reducing the untoward effects of trauma. Clinical wisdom is combined with evidence-based information in a very readable book. Having worked with trauma and loss for over thirty years I know that this book will be an indispensable guide for the field.”
Atle Dyregrov, PhD, director at the Center for Crisis Psychology, Bergen, Norway

"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."
M.E. Stevens-Guille, PhD
