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

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.
Zahra Jaferi
It a great book for clients to help explain their symptoms and reaction in ways they can relate to.

Format: Paperback
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.

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 book is inviting and quite usable. I hope it finds it's way into every library's self-help section. I highly recommend this book both to those who have experienced trauma and to those who love them.

Format: Paperback
There are much better books out there on trauma and PTSD. A colleague showed me this book (which is why I am not a "verified amazon purchaser"). This book has some major problems: neither DBT nor ACT are evidence-based treatments for PTSD-- so why is this book focused on these models? There are also major PTSD evidence-based models that are not included at all, such as EMDR. Also, there is far too little attention to helping people avoid being retraumatized. There are many people with major PTSD who are not ready to delve into their trauma. Overall, sorry but I am not impressed. This books lacks an important, broader understanding of the PTSD field and may be harmful to some people who pick it up. People should be encouraged to use evidence-based approaches for PTSD.

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