Most children are exposed to a traumatic event by age sixteen, and while some may recover from the shock, many others struggle with the lingering flashbacks, hypervigilance, and insomnia that are associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The PTSD Workbook for Teens is the first workbook for teens with PTSD and trauma-related difficulties.
Incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), this approach helps teens work through their symptoms and make progress in overcoming them. Each worksheet and activity encourages teen readers to reestablish a sense of safety, manage their thoughts and feelings appropriately, remember and mourn their traumatic experience, and reconnect with a positive sense of self. Written by a psychologist specializing in trauma with over twenty years of experience, this workbook will help thousands of teens take back their lives from traumatic memories and PTSD-related symptoms.
