Practical advice for managing the after-effects of trauma

Practical help for managing the after-effects of trauma

Traumatic life experiences can lead to persistent change. Those affected may become numb and shut off from those around them and grief, guilt or shame may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours. Sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. Sudden mood swings, emotional overwhelm, impaired concentration, dissociation or feelings of constant alert make living difficult.

Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD), are caused by our mind and body's attempts to cope with experiences of extreme danger. They can affect and overwhelm anyone and are not a sign of personal weakness.

Written by an expert trauma therapist, this accessible self-help manual takes those affected by specific traumatic events on a journey of recovery and healing, based on the latest psychological research and advances in trauma therapy.

This fully revised and updated edition includes:
Clear explanations of the symptoms of trauma and how to recognize them
Guidance on seeking specialist psychological help
A step-by-step recovery programme, based on a positive growth approach
Practical advice, tested exercises and useful summary check points
Effective, integrative trauma healing techniques for body, mind and soul

Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended under the Reading Well Books on Prescription scheme.

Stay Hungry & Kick Burnout in the Butt

Dr. Steven Berglas
Authors:
Dr. Steven Berglas

Most Americans today are frustrated that no matter how much emotional currency they invest in the work they are trying to do well, each day leaves them disappointed, depleted, and distressed. Dr. Berglas has spent more than 25 years studying this phenomenon while a faculty member at Harvard Medical School's Department of Psychiatry, and as an Adjunct Professor at USC's Marshall School of Business. He has devoted four decades to helping high-earning clients derive psychological rewards from work. Berglas' clients range from CEOs and other C-Level executives, to professional athletes, lawyers, politicians, and artists.In STAY HUNGRY & KICK BURNOUT IN THE BUTT, Berglas explores what causes people to suffer psychological burnout , and how to prevent it. Specifically, Berglas walks you through a program that enables you to identify passions and harness the energy (already within you) to fuel psychologically gratifying professional pursuits. Debunking common myths, Dr. Berglas knows there's no one-size-fits-all solution to any psychological problem, which is why he will help you identify your core passion and then offer clear, actionable advice on how to harness it to live a happier and more fulfilling life guided by purpose.

Too Many Pills

James Le Fanu
Authors:
James Le Fanu

The number of prescriptions issued by family doctors has soared threefold in just fifteen years with millions now committed to taking a cocktail of half a dozen (or more) different pills to lower the blood pressure and sugar levels, statins, bone strengthening and cardio protective drugs. In Too Many Pills, doctor and writer James Le Fanu examines how this progressive medicalisation of people's lives now poses a major threat to their health and wellbeing, responsible for a hidden epidemic of drug induced illness (muscular aches and pains, lethargy, insomnia, impaired memory and general decrepitude), a sharp increase in the number of emergency hospital admissions for serious side effects and implicated in the recently noted decline in life expectancy.The paradoxically harmful, if increasingly well recognised, consequences of too much medicine are illustrated by the remarkable personal testimony of the readers of James Le Fanu's weekly medical column, coerced into taking drugs they do not need, debilitated by their adverse effects - and their almost miraculous recovery on discontinuing them. The only solution, he argues, is for the public to take the initiative. His review of the relevant evidence for the efficacy, or otherwise, of commonly prescribed drugs should allow readers of Too Many Pills to ask much more searching questions about the benefits and risks of the medicines they are taking.

Life is full of opportunity for young women, but it's also far more pressured than ever before. Whether it's the proliferation or the homogeneity of images of beauty and success that wallpaper our world, we know what a beautiful woman looks like - and we know what a perfect life looks like too. We live in a world that floods us with expectations about everything - from what we should weigh to what we should wear to how often we should be having sex and how much money we should be making. As a consequence, we begin to feel that we need to tick all these boxes in order to have 'the Perfect Life'. When we inevitably fall short, we feel anxious - we feel that we are failing and have the sense we are losing control. As a result, increasing numbers of young women are battling with issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying, perfectionism, toxic friendships and relationships, pressure to succeed or conform, and poor body image. At an age when life should be exciting, fun and relatively care-free, more and more young women are adrift and struggling. Dr Linda Papadopoulos understands the issues and has the experience to guide and support young women to help get their lives back on track so they can feel happier, more confident, more in control. Unfollow: Living life on your own terms offers valuable insight and practical self-help to empower women to throw off the burden of expectation and start leading the lives they want to lead.

Overcoming Traumatic Stress

Claudia Herbert
Authors:
Claudia Herbert

Terrible events are very hard to deal with. Those who go through a catastrophic life experience often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They become numb and shut off from those around them, or grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours while sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder are psychological conditions that result from a person's coping mechanisms having been completely overwhelmed by a terrible experience. These 'flashbacks' may be so severe that sufferers may feel that they are losing their sanity and subsequently become ever more isolated in their distress. To overcome the effects of trauma it is necessary to change those reactions and begin to see events in a different light. This book demonstrates, with practical advice and tested exercises, how to find new, effective ways of coping with, and finally overcoming traumatic stress.
