Most children are exposed to a traumatic event by age sixteen, and while some may recover from the shock, many others struggle with the lingering flashbacks, hypervigilance, and insomnia that are associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The PTSD Workbook for Teens is the first workbook for teens with PTSD and trauma-related difficulties. It incorporates cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), an approach that it proven to help teens work through their symptoms and make progress in overcoming them. Each worksheet and activity encourages teen readers to re-establish a sense of safety, manage their thoughts and feelings appropriately, remember and mourn their traumatic experience, and reconnect with a positive sense of self. Written by a psychologist specializing in trauma with over twenty years of experience, this workbook will help thousands of teens take back their lives from traumatic memories and PTSD-related symptoms.

Reviews

"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 "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 "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.
