Growing Beyond Survival: A Self-Help Toolkit for Managing Traumatic Stress
by Elizabeth Vermilyea, 2000
A great book for helping clients learn and practice the self-regulation skills essential to recovering from child abuse. It’s particularly good on dealing with dissociative symptoms. As Mike Lew says, "This is one of the best - a clear, thoughtful workbook... Vermilyea is a genuine ally, providing concrete explanations and specific reasons for everything she suggests. [It] should be on the bookshelf of every professional who works with survivors [of child abuse]."
