Trauma can turn a person's world upside down-- afterward, nothing may look safe or familiar. This supportive workbook helps trauma survivors find and use crucial skills for coping, self-understanding, and self-care. Even when the worst has happened, this book shows how it is possible to feel good again. Filled with comforting activities, relaxation techniques, self-evaluation questionnaires, and exercises, the workbook explains how and why trauma can throw you for a loop and what survivors can do now to cope. Chapters guide readers step-by-step toward reclaiming a basic sense of safety, self-worth, and control over their lives, as well as the capacity to trust and be close to others. Readers learn how to protect themselves from overwhelming memories and to heal from trauma-related reactions that may be disturbing their day-to-day lives. Written by experts in treating trauma and based on extensive research, the workbook can be used on its own or in conjunction with psychotherapy.

This book possibly saved my sanity. I discovered it seeking an explanation for memory problems and a disturbing startle response.
I realized how relevant it was as I read through, worked through, and re-read. It gave me a name for my problems. It gave me a name, it gave me hope, and it gave a possible path through to the other side of darkness.
I STRONGLY recommend this book for anyone dealing with the realization for trauma, trying to figure out how to go from surviving to living, and those just realizing that there really was a problem.
