Many young people have been exposed to traumatic events. As a result, they experience lingering flashbacks, have trouble sleeping, or a constant feeling that they are in danger. These are the 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 them work through their experience and make sense of their thoughts and feelings.
The book includes worksheets and activities to help re-establish a sense of safety, gain control over emotions, make peace with their traumatic experience, and reconnect with a positive sense of self.
“To date, resources specifically for traumatized teens have not been readily available, despite the fact that many experience traumatic events during childhood and into their teen years. This book, The PTSD Workbook for Teens, offers much-needed information aimed at the special needs of this population. Author Libbi Palmer addresses the main after-effects of trauma and offers practical information and worksheets to help teen readers work through their symptoms and reestablish safety, personal control, and positive self-esteem. I highly recommend it.” —Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP, psychologist and author of Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorder, and The Treatment of Complex Trauma
“Palmer has a powerful grasp on the needs of teenagers and a user-friendly approach to trauma recovery. This workbook provides hands-on tools, easily accessible by a teen working through trauma alone, or for treatment providers looking for a framework to help adolescent clients overcome trauma. Work through this book and find a road to peace.” —Ambra Born, PsyD, Director of child psychological services at Reaching HOPE in Lakewood, CO
“Palmer has provided teens with a terrific resource to understand, process, and heal from trauma. The book is quite comprehensive but easy to use, and gives teens the power to choose at what level they want to work through their issues. These are techniques that really work to help teens move on from bad experiences and feel better.” —Carrie Merscham, PsyD, psychologist and author of the blog selfhelponthego.com
