Reviews Elsewhere – Mindfulness Skills for Trauma & PTSD

As always, scouring the net for potentially useful resources, and I found this review over on Psych Central.


Post-traumatic stress disorder affects a wide range of individuals, from combat veterans and law enforcement to the survivors of sexual assault and childhoodabuse. The disorder expresses itself in a variety of ways, including anxiety, depression, avoidance and anger. Just as no two people are completely alike, so it is with those dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Reasonably, then, we should not expect a one-size-fits-all approach to work for dealing with the effects of PTSD. Talk-therapy is a popular approach, but in her book, Mindfulness Skills for Trauma and PTSD, Rachel Goldsmith Turow introduces another.

Have you tried mindfulness as part of your PTSD recovery? Have you read Rachel’s book and have an opinion on it? Let us know in the comments, or if you’ve read another good book on the subject, leave a review.
