Publisher's Summary

Although PTSD affects seven to eight percent of people in the world, it remains a relatively taboo subject. When people do talk about it, it's usually restricted to war veterans and victims of child abuse.

The truth is, PTSD can manifest in response to any kind of trauma.

Recent research has shown that it is possible to recover from nightmarish experiences and live a life that feels happy and secure.

Instead of struggling to find a sense of worth, you can rewrite the script and engage with yourself compassionately.

Recovery from complex trauma is a long journey, but the rewards you'll reap along the way will keep you moving forward.

In Recovery from Complex PTSD, you will discover:

  • What Complex PTSD is, and how it differs from the more commonly known PTSD 
  • How to rewrite the narrative of your life to overcome negative self-concept and regain control over your life 
  • The Loop of Traumatization: how your brain creates a survival-based narrative that dictates your thoughts and behaviors 
  • How understanding the causes of complex trauma can allow you to overcome the fear and pain that accompany distressing experiences 
  • What it means when you consistently experience disturbed interpersonal relationships 
  • The avoidance techniques you are unconsciously employing in your life that protect you but are also keeping you stagnant 
  • How you can build an accurate sense of self that isn't formed by your past
  • And more.

You know what helplessness feels like. The paralysis of panic, the loss of control. What it's time for you to learn, is that these feelings aren't forever.

You are capable of transforming the way you experience life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

It's a good way to figure out how to deal and why you're experiencing attacks. I would recommend it to anyone who is dealing with worry or stress and allowing it to interfere with their daily lives.

Great book

I have never felt so understood and validated, I have always known I need help regarding trauma but at 42 and several traumatic events later I’m learning I’m not insane
