Editorial Reviews

Review

"A thorough and compassionate workbook. The authors combine basic information, exercises, and examples in a highly readable and accessible format. This book will be particularly useful for readers taking their first steps on the journey of recovery from trauma."--Maxine Harris, PhD, coauthor of Healing the Trauma of Abuse
 
"Anyone who chances on this workbook or is referred to it is extremely fortunate. It offers hope and guidance, speaking to the reader in personal ways that open paths for growth. I am especially impressed by the number and diversity of practical, realistic exercises. The authors provide concrete direction as they share their collective wisdom and experience."--Carroll Ann Ellis, MA, Director of Victim Services, Fairfax County (Virginia) Police Department
 
"This practical workbook explains the impact of trauma and provides resources for coping. Survivors will benefit from the empathic tone and the personalized worksheets. Most important, this is a hopeful book that emphasizes that healing is possible, a much-needed message."--Christine A. Courtois, PhD, author of Healing the Incest Wound, and in private practice, Washington, DC
 
"Step by guided step, this workbook offers a careful, caring assist out of the emotional tangle that can result from trauma....Clear, comprehensive, well-grounded, and well-organized--real help for those in a vulnerable place."--Kirkus Reviews (on the prior edition)

 

"Life After Trauma is written by two attuned, experienced trauma professionals who connect with their readers’ pain, resources, and determination. The reader feels seen, held, guided, and respected all along the way."--from the foreword by Laurie Anne Pearlman, PhD


"A way to connect with readers' pain, resources, and determination....Reading this book has been an amazing journey. I highly recommend it."
(Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter 2010-03-12)

"This book is full of helpful, practical strategies for coping and self-care....Would recommend this book as a good self-help workbook that offers a useful place to begin helping oneself following a trauma."
(Transactional Analysis Journal 2010-03-12)

"I especially applaud the authors of this workbook, emphasizing the importance of clients acquiring or developing comforting and coping strategies early on in their healing process, and for their warm and accessible writing style. Packed with tips and dozens of exercises, the workbook is primarily aimed at survivors, but can be used by or with a therapist....I would recommend this practical volume to all counsellors as part of their trauma toolbox."
(The Independent Practitioner 2010-03-12)

"Step by guided step, this workbook offers a careful, caring assist out of the emotional tangle that can result from trauma....Clear, comprehensive, well-grounded, and well-organized—real help for those in a vulnerable place." (on previous edition)

I had just gone through the long road of recovery from severe childhood abuse and being on the other side I felt a little wobbly on things like setting healthy boundaries and building self-esteem. This book helped a lot. By following the advice and doing some of the excercises, I learned how to get on my feet and stand solid. The only downfall for this book in my personal case was a lot of it pertained to achieving that healthy life that you had before the trauma. With childhood abuse, for me, there was no reference point to compare too. Despite those sections, the exercises are solid, easy to follow, and work. You must be self motivated and willing to explore traumatic feelings.

As a health care professional who treats trauma, ptsd,anxiety and mood disorders, I found this book helpful for the patient who can and wants to work through difficulties between sessions and is supported by a well trained therapist (psychologist) to do so. It is recommended among colleagues. I would not recommend it for someone as a self help book as the therapy needs to accompany such recovery and healing. Excellent exercises and explanations as to what a patient with trauma experiences is going through....well written and understandable. Highly recommend it.

I was pleasantly surprized at how practical, user friendly and up-to-date this manual was. I haven't finished it yet, but have already started using it with a teen and an adult.

This book is very well written and I actually look forward to reading my assignments out of it. There are very practical life-lessons to be learned from this book. The step by step processes and the insights are well worth any price. This book is great for teaching you to take care of yourself as those who have been traumatized in life usually have issue taking care of themselves. This book stands alone and is not a workbook in the sense that it goes along with another text. This is a book that you read and work in.

Excellent self-help workbook. It really helped me with my PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). There is a great book to read with same title. I don't write in the book in case a episode occurs with different answers to my emotions. I use with a notebook to write in. Just FYI

I am a therapist that specializes in trauma recovery. This book is a great comprehensive ersourec that addresses many of the issues that underlie traumatic responses. Many books focus on symptoms and skills, which this does, however also helps people address and look at foundation sources of such symptoms. Dr. D
