Description

It is estimated that over 3 million people per year are injured in motor vehicle accidents and up to 45% of people in a serious auto accident develop posttraumatic stress disorder.

Written by the creators of an empirically supported cognitive-behavioral therapy program, this workbook includes all the information necessary for a client to learn the appropriate skills to overcome their MVA-related PTSD. When used in conjunction with the corresponding therapist guide, this book provides a complete treatment package with a proven success rate.

Through the use of this workbook, clients will become active participants in their supervised treatment. Clients will learn to alleviate their suffering through a variety of skills including relaxation techniques and exposure exercises. In addition, this workbook gives clients the opportunity to deal with other issues that may have resulted from the accident such as anger, numbness, estrangement, and others.

Overcoming the Trauma of Your Motor Vehicle Accident Workbook comes complete with assessments to be completed at various stages throughout treatment, as well as blank forms used to monitor progress that can be photocopied or downloaded from the Treatments That Work website. It is a one-of-a-kind resource that allows clients to work alongside their therapist to personalize their treatment strategy and overcome their PTSD.
