Editorial Reviews

Review

“Relying upon the growing body of evidence-based psychological treatments for PTSD, psychologist Sheela Raja assembles a treasure trove of useful exercises and skills for people committed to recovery. This workbook is an invaluable tool to accompany psychotherapy and will prove to be an outstanding complement to existing self-help manuals. Utilizing an integrated framework for promoting behavioral health, Raja’s clinical skill and expertise resounds throughout the text. This is an important reference for patients and clinicians alike.”

—Terence M. Keane, PhD, director of National Center for PTSD in Boston, professor and assistant dean for research at Boston University School of Medicine



“Sheela Raja has produced an excellent resource for the many individuals suffering from emotional consequences of trauma that do not have access to, cannot afford, or prefer not to utilize traditional mental health services. Her book is long overdue in self-help literature. It is grounded in, and supported by, the best available research related to trauma treatment approaches. Readers can rest comfortably knowing that this is the relatively rare book written for trauma survivors that includes techniques proven to be invaluably helpful for countless others suffering from similar difficulties. They can be assured that exercises recommended in this book are bolstered by cutting-edge scientific research. Overcoming Trauma and PTSD is truly an invaluable resource—one that I will use often and recommend highly.”

—Matt J. Gray, PhD, director of clinical training and professor of psychology at the University of Wyoming



“Sheela Raja has written an accessible, clear, and compassionate book that successfully integrates important evidence-based techniques for the treatment of PTSD. She does an excellent job explaining techniques so that people can use them on their own, while also providing important guidance about when (and how) to seek professional help.”

—Holly K. Orcutt, PhD, professor of psychology at Northern Illinois University

Format: Paperback
Sheela Raja's Overcoming Trauma and PTSD provides a good overview and understanding of the PTSD diagnosis for the layperson. It is clearly not intended to replace traditional psychotherapy and treatment, but for those who are struggling and not ready or able to start treatment there are many useful building block skills and techniques that can be learned and practice. Her writing is easy to understand and accessible. Raja pulls from a variety of approaches that have empirical support for helping diverse problems including PTSD, depression, anxiety, and relational problems. Not all users will find that each problem/coping suggestion applies to them and this is best seen as a menu-based approach to healthy coping. As a provider I have also found it useful to use this workbook as an adjunct to treatment, working with clients to practice some the more applicable coping skills in session and then encouraging between practice between sessions. This is made much easier as the client has the workbook to refer back to instead of just their memory of what we talked about in session. Overall, I recommend this workbook and think it can be helpful for clients and clinicians alike in working to reclaim a fulfilling life after trauma.

This book is very well written and insightful. It seeks to help those who don't have time or resources for traditional counseling or pyschotherapy but need help overcoming trauma. I found it to be intuitive, thoughtful and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book!

This well-written book is a useful tool for learning about traumatic stress disorders, developing a thoughtful self-assessment, and selecting the most appropriate therapeutic modality. I particularly appreciate the way it offers evidence-based choices, so that the user can steer his or her own way towards resolution. It is engagingly written, with plenty of examples and cases to keep the reader engaged, and offers a compassionate and rationale aide to those who are suffering the fall-out from traumatic life events.

Very good for mindfulness and DBT, but you will need Healing Trauma by Peter Levine or some other PTSD workbook for a more thorough product.

Mindfulness from Buddhism helps heal trauma if you can believe in it. I suggest a DBT app also.

This book is very well written and explains trauma and PTSD symptoms and effects. It a great book for clients to help explain their symptoms and reaction in ways they can relate to. I received a lot of information that i could write in a paper i needed for my masters program and it was very informative it gave plenty of examples to use in therapy.
