Publisher's Summary

You have suffered through a traumatic experience. You have survived it. You are here to tell your tale. Where do you go from here? You feel so much different than you did before your traumatic experience. You feel like a different person. You might not even be aware of who you are anymore. You might have lost your own sense of identity since you have suffered from trauma.

There are many people who have suffered from PTSD and complex PTSD who feel just like you. Approximately seven million people in America are currently suffering from PTSD or complex PTSD. Many others are suffering from other mental illnesses, some of them arising from trauma, like bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, OCD, OCPD, suicidal ideations, and borderline personality disorder.

You might feel as though you have changed in many fundamental ways. In reality, you probably have. PTSD and complex PTSD increases hormones in your brain and body that cause fight/flight/freeze reactions any time that you are exposed to traumatic or scary events.

PTSD and Complex PTSD increases the likelihood that you also experience these heightened states of arousal and awareness even with reminders, dreams or flashbacks from the events.

In this audiobook, we discuss where you are at with your current PTSD and complex PTSD symptoms, what you have gone through to get to this point, and how you can find your purpose after you have suffered from trauma in your life. The most important thing in your PTSD or complex PTSD is to find a purpose, so that you have something to move forward towards during your PTSD and complex PTSD recovery.

Great guide for those grieving too

Many people don't realize this, but grief, and grieving, can be treated in the same way that pTSD is, that is why I, as a funeral director opted to get this book. It really helps me to understand what a family is going through, and provides me with ways to help them begin to heal. The finding purpose part is really applicable, as most of the time the bereaved are lost and in a haze as to what they should do next. I call it grief work, finding something to occupy their mind as they begin to fight their way through the mess they find themselves in. Having a degree in Psychology I found this to be a very relevant book with a lot of helpful hints for those who actually suffer PTSD.

Trevor Clinger manages to guide us through this text with aplomb. A real professional, he is easy to follow and understand. You will never wonder what he said. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Great audiobook for learning about PTSD!

I found this audiobook to be very beneficial to my understanding of PTSD. My best friend has PTSD, and this audiobook gave me the ability to help understand her better. I now am able to have more empathy and compassion for her. Thanks for the great explanation!

Robotic narrator and overly long lists

I could not get past 10 minutes. The narrator sounds very robotic, so much so that at first, I wondered if this was read by a text-to speech programm. The intonation and even pronunciation is off, even though he sounds like a native American English speaker. He also does not take punctuation into account and reads everything, including titles and questions, as one continuing sentence.
I tried to get past it, but then the author starts listing things - possible causes for PTSD at first. "Maybe you grew up with a neglective or abusive parent. Maybe you lost your house. Maybe your parents weren't faithful to each other. Maybe you were a victim of molestation in your childhood years. Or maybe..." and it just goes on and on and on, with no rhyme or reason. Maybe this approach works in book form, but combined with the narrator, it just didn't. I skipped through the first list (had to press the forward button quite a few times. It is really *long*), but a few minutes after that he starts with a new list, about symptoms of PTSD. Again, the same jumbled approach. I had enough.
So, I can't say anything about the book past the 10 or 12 minute mark, but if you're interested, I'd advise to get the book version (if there is one).

This book made it very easy to understand PTSD!

I found this book really helpful in guiding me through my own PTSD. PTSD can be very traumatic, but this audio book has helped lessen the trauma I experience on a daily basis.
