Healing from Post Traumatic Stress Having experienced the trauma of childhood sexual abuse in my life, I found this book to be extraordinarily helpful for anyone suffering from the emotional & physical discomfort of post traumatic stress. It is filled with insightful self care techniques to help support healing & recovery through hard times & difficult days. Every chapter is filled with gentle, caring & safe suggestions, that encourage the reader to find their path towards inner peace. Throughout the book, the author's warmth & compassion is obvious, as she shows you how to develop your self confidence, while dealing with the feelings of the trauma. No other self care workbook that I have read in the past, has been as informative & comforting. PS: Thank you so much for allowing me the pleasure of reading your book. Finally, I wish I had a read such as this, when I faced my own personal trauma. Your book is wonderful. -- a client - anonymous
Monique Lang provides readers with effective tools to help process and understand traumatic experiences. It is a powerful book for those interested in helping themselves as well as an adjunct to seeking professional support. Its easy to read text and straight-forward exercises provide a very important first step. I highly recommend Healing from Post Traumatic Stress for both the general public and professionals working with Trauma Survivors. -- Lois Guarino, Director of People & Culture Omega Institute for Holistic Studies
Healing from Post Traumatic Stress is that rare combination in the trauma literature of a book that is practical, well written and scientifically accurate. The author begins by helping her readers learn the skills required to manage the powerful emotions associated with trauma. Then, step by step, she takes us through the process of healing and growth. Her use of nonverbal techniques such as collage and drawing adds an unusually strong dimension. This book is an invaluable tool for professionals working with traumatized individuals and I highly recommend it for that purpose. -- Rosemary Masters, Co-Director of the Trauma Studies Program of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in New York City.
Monique Lang has produced a comprehensive workbook which beautifully speaks to the many feelings and challenges commonly experienced by individuals who have been traumatized. Using a holist approach, the book empathically encourages individuals to work through the trauma related feelings and behaviors which may be negatively impacting their lives. Feelings commonly experienced by those who have been traumatized are outlined in a manner which also respects and affirms individual differences. Readers are then assisted to develop healthier lifestyle behaviors and patterns. The book's empowering tone, combined with its practical exercises, effectively assists individuals impacted by trauma to move from a place of being a victim to one of being a survivor. -- Sylvie Jeanloz, ACSW, Assistant Executive Director, Adult and Family Services Kingsbridge Heights Community Center
This is a masterful and resourceful book that clinicians will find enormously helpful in their work with trauma survivors.

This book represents an important integration of trauma theory, the body and spirituality in a way that offers guidance and hope in our work with trauma clients. -- Rita Hayes ,LCSW, former Clinical Director of the World Trade Center Rescue and Volunteer Program at Mount Sinai Hospital; Faculty, Trauma Studies Center, ICP.
