Both individuals with diagnosable PTSD and those with subclinical post traumatic stress can benefit from this book. Page 51 of 83 TIP SHEET TIP SHEET ? This is the first PTSD/trauma workbook to integrate the most effective treatments from all major evidence based therapies, including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). ? Sheela Raja is a clinical psychologist who has published numerous articles on the subject of trauma. She is an often quoted source in the media on this topic and conducts nationwide trainings to help health care providers understand the effects of trauma and PTSD. Description: Post traumatic stress disorder affects every sufferer in a different way. A veteran who committed atrocities during war may not benefit from cognitive treatments in the same way a victim of sexual assault might. For each type of trauma, there is an appropriate type of treatment and the best treatment may not lie entirely within one therapeutic modality. Written by a psychologist who specializes in trauma, Overcoming Trauma and PTSD combines the best of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). By offering the best skills for specific symptoms, readers get the quickest relief from flashbacks, insomnia, and other symptoms, and the best chance of recovery. This workbook includes worksheets, checklists, and exercises that focus on common elements underlying ACT, DBT, and CBT. Readers practice emotional and situational exposure, behavioral change, increasing interpersonal functioning, and mindfulness, and eventually use this integrative approach to calm their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Author Bio: Sheela Raja, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She completed internship and post doctoral training at the National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Boston, MA, and has published numerous articles exploring the relationship between physical health and traumatic events.
