For twenty-five years, Michele Rosenthal struggled with her own Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following a horrific illness that almost killed her. Now an award-winning blogger and post-trauma coach, Rosenthal has developed a program that not only helped her make a full recovery but has been helping survivors around the world move beyond their PTSD as well. In this book, she shares the very best tools that have helped so many come through to the other side of trauma.
There are several elements that make PTSD recovery enormously challenging; this is a book about making it easier. The more safe and in control you feel—over your own internal experience—the more safe and in control you’ll be as you examine how, when, and in what way to move toward recovery. —from the introduction
