Even when the worst has happened, it "is" possible to feel good again. This compassionate workbook has already helped tens of thousands of trauma survivors start rebuilding their lives, with a focus on the posttrauma present. Full of practical strategies for coping and self-care, the book guides readers step by step toward reclaiming a basic sense of safety, self-worth, trust, and control, as well as the capacity to be close to others. Updated throughout, the second edition has a new section on managing emotions through mindfulness and an appendix on easing the stress of health care visits. The larger trim size makes it easier to work through the dozens of engaging questionnaires and exercises.
