Publisher's Summary

Can you ever really recover from posttraumatic stress (PTSD)? Psychotherapist, guided imagery pioneer, and trauma expert Belleruth Naparstek says yes, and has the research to prove it. Her powerfully transformative guided meditations were found in four different clinical studies to significantly lower all three clusters of PTS symptoms by six weeks of regular listening, reducing flashbacks, nightmares, isolation, numbing, fear, shame, cynicism, and anger, while restoring a sense of inner goodness, hope, self-esteem, and meaning - all just over the course of eight weeks of regular listening.

Naparstek, the author of the award-winning book, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal, combines this physiologically balancing, psychologically sophisticated, and spiritually inspiring guided narrative with the exquisite scoring of Steven Mark Kohn's music, to deliver a depth charge of healing to survivors of combat and military sexual trauma, childhood abuse, motor vehicle accidents, criminal assault, domestic violence, natural disasters, ICU stays, and traumatic hospital experiences.

A separate track of affirmations bolsters the healing process with quick, positive reminders in a briefer format, which can be heard and enjoyed while engaged in other activities, including driving. Another track of the music alone helps to integrate and solidify the deep inner gains achieved through the other two tracks, and ensure they last.

Designed for use as a supportive supplement to other treatment approaches for PTSD, or as a stand-alone intervention, this ground breaking program is recommended and distributed by the US Veterans Administration, Kaiser Permanente, The Red Cross, the US Army, and hundreds of hospitals and treatment centers nationwide.

Great healing tool!

I have used different meditations but this has been the best in helping me sleep & reduce hyper arousal symptoms. As a rape survivor that's a contant challenge. Thank you Ruth, you have empowered me to live my best life!

This Is Perfect ~ Perfect Voice and Music

Where does Healing Trauma: Guided Imagery for Posttraumatic Stress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This really is one of the best meditations I have ever come across, if not the best. Belleruth's voice and the script are incredibly soothing and the music is sublime. I am looking forward to listening to this one again and again.

AMAZING must have!

If you struggle this is a must have audio book. I've been doing this everyday the last week and it's helping me so much to release the pain I've carried in my heart. The voice is soothing and the guided meditation,affirmations and music are perfect! You can't go wrong for the price. My girlfriend has been doing it as well and having great releases as well and healing. Hang in there and know help is everywhere if your open to it.

A great narrator

What did you love best about Healing Trauma: Guided Imagery for Posttraumatic Stress?

Naparstek's outstanding calm voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author and myself as the two are intended to connect in this meditation book.

Have you listened to any of Belleruth Naparstek’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. This one is just as good as all her other meditation books and exercises.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

That affirmations do help you to change your attitudes over time.

Any additional comments?

One of the better self help books because it is about healing solely and meditation. She doesn't advise you to do anything or be anyone--but to simply let yourself listen.

yes

Would you ever listen to anything by Belleruth Naparstek again?

yes!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Belleruth Naparstek?

no one else

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Couldn't hear it. I didn't know I had to pay $14.95 a month to hear these. I only paid $4.95 for the audible item.

It is listed as downloaded on Audible. I can't afford to pay both charges.
