In the third edition of The PTSD Workbook, psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula offer readers the most effective tools available for overcoming post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
PTSD is an extremely debilitating condition that can occur after exposure to a terrifying event. But whether you’re a veteran of war, a victim of domestic violence or sexual violence, or have been involved in a natural disaster, crime, car accident, or accident in the workplace, your symptoms may be getting in the way of you living your life.
PTSD can often cause you to relive your traumatic experience in the form of flashbacks, memories, nightmares, and frightening thoughts. This is especially true when you are exposed to events or objects that remind you of your trauma. Left untreated, PTSD can lead to emotional numbness, insomnia, addiction, anxiety, depression, and even suicide. So, how can you start to heal and get your life back?
In The PTSD Workbook, Third Edition, psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula outline techniques and interventions used by PTSD experts from around the world to conquer distressing trauma-related symptoms. In this fully revised and updated workbook, you’ll learn how to move past the trauma you’ve experienced and manage symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, and flashbacks.
Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this book is extremely accessible and easy to use, offering evidence-based therapy at a low cost. This new edition features chapters focusing on veterans with PTSD, the link between cortisol and adrenaline and its role in PTSD and overall mental health, and the mind-body component of PTSD. Clinicians will also find important updates reflecting the new DSM-V definition of PTSD.
This book is designed to give you the emotional resilience you need to get your life back together after a traumatic event.

Ultimate guide to free your mind and find the calm you seek today!
One of the things on the rise in our society today is the demand for productivity. We are expected to do more and more in less time than ever before. To compensate for the increased demand in our productivity we tend to stretch ourselves between multiple tasks at any given time. This increases the amount of thoughts our mind has to deal with from one minute to the next. Not surprisingly, another thing on the rise in our society today is stress. Needless to say, these two things are completely related. While we cannot necessarily control the demands placed on us, we can control how we approach those demands. Reducing the workload placed on our minds is a critical factor when it comes to reducing the stress in our lives. The only way to do this effectively is to reduce and organize the amount of information that our minds have to cope with on a regular basis. Essentially, we need to declutter our minds. By decluttering our minds we can free our minds of stress and anxiety, while achieving a level of peace and calm that we all deserve.
