Survivors of Trauma and How They HealBook - 2004
Post-traumatic stress creates legions of heroes whose every day is a test of courage. Their suffering is intense and persistent, and because of the odd way traumatic memories are stored in the brain, traditional talk therapies can actually make symptoms worse rather than better. Now, thanks to dramatic discoveries in fields as wide-ranging as biochemistry, neurology, and psychotherapy, there is new help for healing from PTSD. This illuminating and deeply compassionate book offers a road map to recovery based on the potent tool of guided imagery. Belleruth Naparstek clearly outlines the three stages of healing and provides more than twenty complete guided-imagery scripts tailored to each stage. Whether you are a trauma sufferer seeking relief or a clinician looking for treatments that work, Invisible Heroes is an inspiring and practical guide to renewed joy in living. Book jacket.
