Overview

Traumatization and Its Aftermath delves deep into the complexities of traumatization and is a practical, comprehensive guide to understanding and overcoming the impacts of adverse circumstances.

In these pages, readers will gain valuable insights into trauma's diverse forms and the importance of understanding traumatization on an individual level. This book answers questions including "Why don't some people heal as easily as others?" "Why do some people experience trauma after 'seemingly insignificant' incidents?" and "Why does overdiagnosis fail so many people?" Readers can also find criteria for evaluating their own trauma, information on how to heal from a trauma disorder, and better ways for treating complex trauma.

Traumatization and Its Aftermath guides readers through each element of the personalized struggle for survival and offers compassionate and patient explanations on how to shorten this struggle--and even prevent it. Packed with detailed resources and accessible storytelling, this book is a must read for clinicians and anyone looking to better understand the mind, body, and natural ability to heal.
