The PTSD Survival Guide for Teens

Strategies to Overcome Trauma, Build Resilience, and Take Back Your Life

If you've experienced trauma or suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the world can seem like a very frightening place. It's important for you to know that you aren't alone, and there isn't anything wrong with you. Many teens have suffered traumatic events, and there are solid skills you can learn that will help you recover. So, how can you begin healing and start building the life you were always meant to lead?

In this compassionate guide by trauma specialist Sheela Raja and her teen daughter Jaya Ashrafi, you'll find skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you tackle anxiety and harmful avoidance behaviors; manage negative emotions; cope with flashbacks and nightmares; and develop trusting, healthy relationships. You'll also learn more about the diagnosis and symptoms of PTSD and understand what kind of help is available to you. Your trauma doesn't need to define you; this book will help you to find strength within so you can move forward.
