Have you or someone you love suffered a traumatic event? If so, you know the devastating impact it can have on your life and spirit. Life-threatening accidents, illnesses, abusive relationships and tragedies can all leave deep emotional wounds that persist long after physical scars have healed. Survivors become 'invisible heroes,' courageously struggling with symptoms so baffling that they sometimes doubt their own sanity. Now there is new hope for the millions affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Drawing on more than thirty years' experience as a therapist, as well as on the most recent research, Belleruth Naparstek presents a clinically proven program for recovery using guided imagery. Filled with the voices of real trauma patients and therapists whose lives and work have been changed by this approach, Invisible Heroes is a must-read book for everyone who is suffering from PTSD.
