Add to that the extensive list of resources in the appendices, and I can't think of a better place for a survivor to begin, continue or complete a journey through the recovery process.
I'm finding that although the reading can be intense for my clients, the book is making full use of the supervision and support provided in therapy.
I'm very pleased with the book and will continue to use it in my practice.
Assists one in understanding PTSD and has exercises in the book to do if you are able.
Basic theme of the book is to assist the trauma survivor in their own recovery. I highly recommend this book.
