ABOUT HEAL YOUR PTSD
For twenty-five years, Michele Rosenthal struggled with her own Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following a horrific illness that almost killed her. Now an award-winning blogger and post-trauma coach, Rosenthal has developed a program that not only helped her make a full recovery but has been helping survivors around the world move beyond their PTSD as well. In this book, she shares the very best tools that have helped so many come through to the other side of trauma.
There are several elements that make PTSD recovery enormously challenging; this is a book about making it easier. The more safe and in control you feel–over your own internal experience–the more safe and in control you’ll be as you examine how, when, and in what way to move toward recovery. -from the introduction
The book contains dozens of brief thought pieces on the many facets of healing as well as exercises to help you orient yourself to a life without PTSD. Rosenthal will guide you in breaking free of the maze of feelings and “trauma loops” that are keeping you from the life you deserve. It all starts with making simple choices that are life affirming. Read this book and healing and recovery can be yours.
“In her latest book about the nature and healing of trauma, Michele Rosenthal again provides an interesting and lay-friendly approach to the basic process of healing PTSD. She emphasizes self-help measures that the victim can use to supplement their healing process, thereby emphasizing self-empowerment, a critical but often neglected tool for healing. This is an ideal work-book for the trauma survivor to use in their journey to emotional health.” —Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Trauma Spectrum
“This is a cheerleading, you-can-do-it kind of book, with step-by-step lifestyle modifications.” —Nancy Szokan, The Washington Post
“Recovery from PTSD is finally possible. Heal Your PTSD is not just a book to help you get past your trauma, it will also help you fully heal from it and get over it.” —Mark Goulston, MD, author of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for Dummies and Just Listen
“Excellent. One major truth presented in this book [is that] committing to change and recovery is a major step in re-creating the self.” –from the foreword by Mary Beth Williams, PhD, MCSW, co-author of The PTSD Workbook
