The adverse childhood experiences recovery workbook, heal the hidden wounds from childhood affecting your adult mental and physical health, Glenn R. Schiraldi

Childhood trauma can harm children's developing brains, change how they respond to stress, and damage their immune systems so profoundly that the effects show up decades later. From trauma specialist Glenn Schiraldi, this innovative workbook provides adult readers with practical, evidence-based skills to help them heal from adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Using the trauma-informed and resilience-building practices in this book, readers will learn to rewire their brain and replace shame, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem with self-compassion, security, and contentment.
