Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
This is the first book to offer structured skills training for those suffering from dissociative disorders as a result of trauma. It offers a helpful combination of short educational pieces, homework sheets and exercises that promote essential emotional and life skills in individuals who suffer from dissociation and which can be used in either group or individual treatment. Beginning with an overview of dissociation and its symptoms, the authors delineate specific skills for managing it by learning to reflect; understanding and regulating emotions; challenging dysfunctional thoughts; coping with anger, fear, shame and guilt; managing triggers; learning to cope with the desire to self-harm; and taking small steps to improve relationships with others. A Guide for Trainers at the end of the book provides an outline for introductory and leave-taking group sessions.
