The PTSD behavioral activation workbook, activities to help you rebuild your life from post - traumatic stress disorder, Matthew Jakupcak, Amy W. Wagner, Christopher R. Martell

For many people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), reliving the past through trauma-focused treatments can be too painful a place to start. They may be more likely to drop out of therapy and avoid seeking further treatment altogether. By shifting the focus from the patient's trauma to what gives their life fulfillment, joy and value, The PTSD Behavioral Activation Workbook can help readers envision the kind of future they want to have, so they can move forward in their treatment to pursue that future
