| People with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) suffer disturbing mental images and memories that cause stress and tension, affecting the quality of their daily lives, making it impossible to heal. The Mind-Body Workbook for PTSD, based upon the latest findings in brain research, is a ten-week program that helps PTSD sufferers tap into their innate healing powers.
This workbook is a unified mind-body approach, drawing from mind-body medicine, awareness training practices, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. These mind-body techniques, taught through short, simple free association writing exercises, help readers resolve their traumatic thoughts and flashbacks and relieve their unproductive emotions, repetitive thoughts and stress. This program allows readers to gently heal from painful memories and symptoms of PTSD, and live life at its best.
