"Struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can take a considerable toll on one's quality of life. And finding ways to move forward can be challenging. Fortunately, TheCognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Workbook for PTSD synthesizes an array of well-researched strategies, and offers readers a clear path toward expanding their coping repertoire and making meaningful life changes."
--Susan M. Orsillo, PhD, professor of psychology at Suffolk University, and coauthor of Worry Less, Live More and Mindfulness- and Acceptance-Based Behavioral Therapies in Practice
"For those struggling after a traumatic life experience, this book offers practical steps to identify symptoms of PTSD, along with cutting-edge cognitive behavioral strategies. Readers can then choose which symptoms are most bothersome, and systematically address each one. Importantly, the authors also include strategies that can help readers to increase positive emotions and well-being. This is a practical, reader-friendly book written by leaders in the field of trauma, emotion regulation, and management of impulsive, risky behavior. I highly recommend this book for those trying to manage their PTSD symptoms, as well as for clinicians who may be seeking a companion text in therapy."
--Sandra B. Morissette, PhD, professor of clinical psychology at The University of Texas at San Antonio
"In this outstanding manual, Tull, Gratz, and Chapman--leading experts in the field of emotion regulation--apply their considerable knowledge and skills to helping people with PTSD. If you are struggling with the emotional aftermath of a traumatic experience, this manual will walk you through the steps of managing out-of-control emotions, facing fears, correcting distorted thinking patterns, and increasing positive feelings. I anticipate that this book will help a great many people, and will recommend it to my own patients."
--David Tolin, PhD, author of Face Your Fears
"The Cognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Workbook for PTSD provides an extremely helpful, evidence-based, accessible guide to addressing the range of challenges that people with PTSD face. Tull, Gratz, and Chapman draw from their research knowledge and clinical expertise to provide a range of strategies that can help people recovering from trauma to engage more fully in their lives. By grouping strategies according to different clusters of symptoms, they've created a book that can easily be used by people who are facing different challenges. The evidence-based strategies are helpful for those in great distress, as well as for those who are struggling less, but still want some help with lingering effects of trauma."
--Lizabeth Roemer, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and coauthor of Worry Less, Live More
"This workbook represents a major step forward for improving the acquisition and retention of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills. The authors are in an exceptionally good position, as clinicians and researchers, to identify needed skills and focus upon them in the therapeutic context. This book is strongly recommended for clinicians and for the clinics in which they work. It's an important advance in the care of patients with trauma exposure and PTSD symptoms."
--Terence M. Keane, PhD, associate chief of staff, research and development, VA Boston Healthcare System; director of the behavioral science division at the National Center for PTSD; and professor of psychiatry and psychology and assistant dean for research at Boston University School of Medicine
"I have been waiting for this book (or one like it) for many years! There are lots of self-help books out there on overcoming trauma, but none is as firmly grounded in proven therapeutic strategies as this one. The book is easy to read, and filled with examples and exercises that bring the therapy to life. The experience, expertise, and compassion of the authors shine through. Everyone who struggles with post-traumatic stress should read this book, and so should their therapists!"
--Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, professor of psychology at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada, and coauthor of TheShyness and Social Anxiety Workbook and The Anti-Anxiety Workbook
Written by a team of experts in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this workbook offers powerful tools to help individuals with PTSD better understand and effectively manage their symptoms. The skills are drawn from a variety of empirically supported cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) treatments-including cognitive processing therapy (CPT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)-useful to a wide range of people, from individuals with severe PTSD to those struggling with just a few symptoms.See all Product description

That being said, the few pages I did read were very informative, and I am confident that when I do have a counselor to guide me through it, it will be of great value.
