Growing Beyond Survival: A Self-Help Toolkit for Managing Traumatic Stress
by Elizabeth Vermilyea, 2000
A great book to help you learn and practice the self-regulation skills essential to recovering from the effects of unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood. It’s particularly good on dealing with dissociative symptoms. As Mike Lew says, "This is one of the best - a clear, thoughtful workbook... If some of it is hard going, stick with it - or come back to it. The effort will reward you. Elizabeth Vermilyea is a genuine ally, providing concrete explanations and specific reasons for everything she suggests."
