Very engaging from the first page!
Kirby Reutter does a great job of taking twenty years of trauma psycho- education and breaking it down into terms that are understandable.
US Army, Vietnam Veteran
As a US Army corpsman serving as a combat medic and a medical lab tech at the 93rd Medevac Hospital in Long Binh, Vietnam, I was exposed to far too much human carnage, body bags, drug abuse and waste of young lives. Then after my tour of duty, I returned home to continue what I thought was a normal life. But after experiencing these traumatic events, they just didn’t go away. For over 40 years, I realized that no matter what I tried, I could not just ‘get over it.’ At the urging of my family, and having a VA disability rating, which provided mental health treatment, I sought professional help and was diagnosed with PTSD. After a few counseling visits my journey to recovery began. Kirby Reutter’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for PTSD was prescribed early on in my treatment, and I could see myself over and over again. Each chapter covers a different segment of the reoccurring theme of ‘restoring balance’ in all aspects of life, followed by ‘The Last Word’ which made it not only understandable, but also applicable. This is a very well-written workbook, and I highly recommend this workbook for any PTSD recovering combat soldier.
A one-of-a-kind self-help workbook that conquers various essential aspects regarding taking control of your symptoms and getting back in the driver’s seat of your life. A very thorough, straightforward, and hands-on approach to overcoming trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.
