Adversity is a part of life and many of us have experienced trauma that has left us feeling distressed, scared or alone. This book draws on Bridie and Sue's background in Clinical Psychology to help you identify what trauma is, the effect it can have on your physical and mental health, and how you can cope.
Containing many ideas and strategies to support you with the impact of trauma, including giving yourself a butterfly hug to calm yourself down or sending an email to someone who lives far away to feel more connected, this is a guide that you can dip in and out of, and return to at different stages in your life after trauma.
Co-written with two young people who were brave enough to share their own stories, you will find that you are not alone, that nothing stays the same, and that there's always hope.
