"While on active duty at the Bamberg US Army Base in Germany, I saw hundreds of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with combat and operational stress reaction (COSR). In my professional opinion, the mind-body bridging technique featured in Mind-Body Workbook for PTSD is the single most effective method for the treatment PTSD and COSR."
—Major Philip Davis, PhD, US Army Reserve
"Without the mind-body bridging tools in Mind-Body Workbook for PTSD, I would be dead. Not only has it saved my life, but made it better than it was before I was deployed."
—Sergeant First Class Kip Day, Utah National Guard and combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom
"Drawing upon recent advances in the field of trauma recovery, the authors have created a unique holistic approach to helping trauma survivors. Their step-by-step method of helping readers better understand and cope with the all-important mind-body connection and its relationship to the low self-esteem, anxiety, anger, sleeping difficulties, and other common emotional, physical, social, and mental aftereffects of trauma, is truly brilliant."
—Aphrodite Matsakis, PhD, author of I Can’t Get Over It, Trust After Trauma, and eight other books on trauma
"This scientifically sound and comprehensive Mind-Body Workbook for PTSD has broken new ground by offering highly effective strategies for mental health treatment. In my twenty years of clinical experience working with complex PTSD and other mental disorders, I have found mind-body bridging, the method taught in this self-help book, to be the most tolerated and effective treatment approach among other evidence-based models, including cognitive processing therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, prolonged exposure, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. Results have been impressive compared to the evidence-based treatments used in my practice. This workbook is compelling and instructive in its ability to help clients develop sufficient resources for sustainable self-healing and empowerment. I have been using mind-body bridging for the past three years in individual and group treatments. I have treated over 100 clients using mind-body bridging and have had no clients terminate treatment."
