This accessible self-help book for trauma survivors, students, therapists, and clinicians teaches practical techniques for using mindfulness to cope with trauma and its aftermath. The techniques described can be used with all types of trauma, from bullying to combat. The guide begins with overview chapters on mindfulness, trauma, and PTSD. Techniques are grouped in chapters on staying in the present, self-compassion, and relief from symptoms such as flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, and nightmares. Later chapters present advanced techniques for overcoming shame and self-criticism, finding relief for numbing and dissociation, and healing relationships. Each chapter contains background info, summary boxes of scientific research, and examples of personal stories throughout. The book also contains about 45 pages of briefly annotated print and online references. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
