Summary

Summary

Child abuse, whether emotional, physical, or sexual, can be the source of enduring difficulties in adulthood. Overcoming Childhood Trauma is a self-help manual for those who are struggling with the aftereffects of having suffered from abuse in childhood.

Based on clinically proven techniques of cognitive therapy, this book will help readers to understand the links between past trauma and present difficulties, offering methods of gaining control over these problems in order to deal with intrusive memories, manage mood swings, and build better relationships in adulthood. The volume includes an introduction to the origin and nature of childhood trauma and contains a complete self-help program, as well as work sheets to help readers to track their progress.
