Book Description

If you have traumatic memories from an extremely upsetting, stressful, or painful experience in your life, you are not alone. In fact, many young people have been exposed to traumatic events. As a result, you might have lingering flashbacks, trouble sleeping, or a constant feeling that you are in danger. These are common symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Based in cognitive behavioral therapy, this user-friendly workbook for teens with PTSD and other trauma-related difficulties will help you work through your experience and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. The book includes worksheets and activities to help you reestablish a sense of safety, gain control over your emotions, make peace with your traumatic experience, and reconnect with a positive sense of self. If you are ready to start recovering from traumatic memories and take back your life, the PTSD Workbook for Teens will show you the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - I find it very useful 4 Jan. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book to anyone working with children who have been abused and are suffering PTS as a result. Relaxation and reflection exercises are copiable to use on a one-to-one basis. I bought this and took it to work and a colleague had taken it from my desk to copy a worksheet before I had made my first cup of tea (she did bring the book back!)

3.0 out of 5 stars It's geared towards girls 24 Jan. 2013
By htm - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase

I would recommend this book be used primarily with girls or younger boys. The examples are geared towards sexual abuse. It is very specific to children who have experienced one trauma. It is informative -psychoeducational and functional.


This workbook has many resources. One of my favorite chapters is Finding Meaning. If we are able to identify some meaning from the trauma that we experienced, it will help us heal more completely and protect us from negative results of future bad events in our lives. The topics in the book work well together and would be useful if the client is invested in the therapy process.

Topics included: What is Trauma, Healing from Trauma, Reacting to Trauma, Remembering Trauma, Avoiding Reminders, Being Jumpy and on Edge, PTSD, Building Support Systems, Asking for Help, Healthy Coping Skills, Crisis Plans, Breathing Skills, Calming Skills, Relaxation Skills, Soothing Skills, Taking Good Care of Your Body, Activating Helpful Parts of Your Brain, Finding a Safe Place, Making Good Decisions, Building a Container for Trauma, When Feelings Become Overwhelming, Spotting Unhelpful Thoughts, How Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions are Connected, Thought Records, Accomplishing things, Having Fun, Stop Avoiding, Telling Your Story, Adding to Your Story, Thinking Errors, Staying Safe, Finding Meaning, & Your Real Self.


The trauma you experienced is only a small part of who you are. There is much more to your life. -p146

This book doesn't talk down to teens. Works them through the steps in the book with clear facts, examples and things to think about and work through. My son and his counselor is impressed with the text and thought provoking work sections
