The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for C-Ptsd: Heal from Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Find Emotional Balance, and Take Back Y

Sheri Van Dijk

Powerful and evidence-based dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills to help you heal from traumas, balance emotions, and feel safe in the present moment.

If you've experienced chronic, multiple, or ongoing instances of trauma, you may be experiencing complex post-traumatic stress disorder, or C-PTSD--and one-size-fits-all treatment methods just aren't enough. In this evidence-based workbook, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) expert Sheri Van Dijk combines cutting-edge research and evidence-based skills to help you feel safer and more stable, and recognize and reconcile traumas, so you can take charge of your life.

Based in DBT, polyvagal theory, and other proven-effective modalities, this powerful and accessible workbook will help you process and manage intense emotions, free yourself from self-destructive behaviors, and feel more stable--and safe--in the present. You'll also find customizable skills to help you:

  • Overcome hypervigilance, psychic numbing, and avoidance
  • Recognize and eliminate dissociation as a survival instinct
  • Minimize the toll your traumas are taking on your physical health
  • Build and maintain healthy relationships
  • Work through distress as it arises--before it reawakens trauma
  • Find meaning and purpose in your life

What happened to you in your past wasn't your fault, and it doesn't have to define your future. Drawing on the best practices of DBT and polyvagal theory, this vital workbook will help you begin healing and reclaim wholeness.
