This self-management workbook teaches skills that empower survivors to take control of and de-escalate their most distressing trauma-related symptoms.
Beginning with a clear explanation of trauma and its effects, Growing Beyond Survival then supplies a toolkit of growth techniques for survivors. It includes many worksheets, mindfulness practices, visual arts exercises, and journal prompts. Vermilyea also provides sleep strategies, tools to develop self-awareness, and emotion management techniques, then suggests action plans for various types of situations by combining these tools.
