The Complex PTSD Coping Skills Workbook
An Evidence-Based Approach to Manage Fear and Anger, Build Confidence, and Reclaim Your Identity
New Harbinger 2022
If you've experienced long-term or repeated trauma--such as childhood abuse or neglect, domestic violence, betrayal, or prolonged emotional abuse--you may struggle with intense feelings of sadness, anger, anxiety, shame, and distrust toward others. You should know that you aren't alone, your pain is real, and there are ways to improve your mental health and begin to heal. This compassionate and evidence-based workbook can help you get started.
Tamara McClintock Greenberg's The Complex PTSD Coping Skills Workbook (New Harbinger, 2022) offers an integrative approach for coping with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, mentalization, and relational therapy. You'll learn the most effective strategies to manage symptoms, overcome painful memories, and build self-confidence. Most importantly, you'll find validation that your feelings aren't "crazy" or "outsized," and discover the skills needed to help you reclaim your life.
This empowering workbook will help you:
- Identify and understand the root cause of your C-PTSD
- Overcome fear, hypervigilance, and avoidance
- Balance emotions before they interfere with daily life
- Seek out and maintain relationships based in equality and respect
