Help teens manage their trauma and move forward

We are greater than the trauma and pain we may experience in our life. This workbook illuminates how healing is possible, explores what trauma is, and shows teens how they can embrace their emotions while developing resiliency.

What sets this trauma workbook apart:
Overview of trauma—Gain greater insight into the different types of trauma (from political upheaval to sexual abuse), its physical and mental effects, and the symptoms to look out for.
Relatable scenarios—Find comfort and reassurance through anecdotes and questions inspired by other teens who have experienced trauma.
Strategies for healing—Discover engaging activities designed to help teens address their trauma and better understand their feelings, from identifying their triggers to practicing meditation and breathwork.


“This is exactly what the world needs right now: a compassionate, frank, succinct, and beautifully empowering workbook for our traumatized teens. It’s chock-full of critical information, helpful assessments, and organized checklists, alongside healing strategies and resiliency practices. This is the book I wish I'd had as a brand new therapist, and I'm incredibly grateful that it's available now. I'll be recommending this in every space I can.” —Kay Bruner, MA, LPC, author of As Soon As I Fell, Debunking the Myths of Forgive and Forget, and Comfort Ye My People

“An essential book for every teen who is beginning the personal journey to heal from trauma. This book provides a practical framework for exploring the nature and effects of trauma and the steps for moving forward in the healing journey. A valuable resource.” —Laura Steele, PsyD, dean of College of Psychology and Counseling at Hope International University

“This book comes to us in a time of high stress and emotions as we navigate a world of uncertainty. Such a needed gem for teens! Dr. Vinall hits the nail on the head with a workbook that is easy to read and follow both for teens and the adults who support them through their healing journey. This book breaks down trauma in a way that is easy to understand and helps the reader feel seen and validated. It is an amazing resource to help teens navigate through feelings and emotions and provides them with resources to identify and work through trauma.” —Marissa G. Soria, MSW, LCSW, founder of Metztli Counseling Services and author of Parenting Teen Boys: A Positive Approach to Raising Healthy, Independent Sons

“This book is not only an informative and evidence-based resource but also has exercises, tools, and strategies to help teens who have had complex and deep trauma. It is an all-in-one for the teens that helps to accelerate and ground clinical treatment of trauma with teens. I 100% recommend for any clinician working with teens who have experienced trauma.” —Tonya Nowakowski, LCSW, director of Victor Community Support Services, Los Angeles County

“Dr. Vinall combines her extensive expertise in our community's most sound trauma recovery therapies in this masterful, effective workbook that speaks to today's savvy adolescent. Trauma Recovery Workbook for Teens identifies and demystifies the essentials of smart, evidenced-based, effective trauma recovery and resiliency building in a developmentally informed, comprehensive workbook, at a time when youth are wanting to hear from credible and empowering mental health professionals.” —Suzanne Mata, PsyD, SUMA Trauma Center, clinical psychologist and trauma specialist

“Deborah Vinall explains in a smooth, safe way what trauma can do to adolescents. Unafraid to face the truth, her book opens ways of integration for teens. As we say in Brainspotting, ‘Where you look affects how you feel,’ and she encourages focus on the past in a way that facilitates release from it and guides toward constructing a resilient future! Her book is worth reading for any teenager to understand trauma reactions and to find out about possible ways of changing post-traumatic states. It is also highly valuable for all adults who are interested in this topic!” —Dr. Monika Baumann, PhD, author of Brainspotting with Children and Adolescents
