Post-traumatic stress disorder affects every sufferer in a different way. A veteran who committed atrocities during war may not benefit from cognitive treatments in the same way a victim of sexual assault might. For each type of trauma, there is an appropriate type of treatment - and the best treatment may not lie entirely within one therapeutic modality. Written by a psychologist who specializes in trauma,Overcoming Trauma and PTSD combines the best of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). By offering the best skills for specific symptoms, readers get the quickest relief from flashbacks, insomnia, and other symptoms, and the best chance of recovery. This workbook includes worksheets, checklists, and exercises that focus on common elements underlying ACT, DBT, and CBT. Readers practice emotional and situational exposure, behavioral change, increasing interpersonal functioning, and mindfulness, and eventually use this integrative approach to calm their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
