Re-Write employs practical strategies using evidence-based methodologies with psychological theory within a human-centered design framework.
Not long ago, cognitive behavioral therapy and medication management were the mainstays for trauma-informed care. Now more than ever, patients and clinicians alike are seeking deeper, more somatic, and holistic attachment theory-based forms of treatment to re-write the trauma narrative, such as somatic psychology and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
The pandemic brought about significant changes in our stability, sense of community, and political and economic landscapes. Because of this added stress, we’re all experiencing a heightened level of sensitivity, which has resulted in multifactorial trauma responses, an impact that spans nations, ages, and socioeconomic statuses.
Re-Write focuses on the healing journey of the trauma survivor, utilizing easy-to-use methodologies for long-lasting effects. Readers can use the workbook in whatever order they choose, experiment with different techniques from different modalities, and find the ones that meet their needs the best.
In this book, readers will get:
Various exercises within trauma-healing methods
Specific writing prompts that encourage processing and healing
Coping mechanisms you can utilize in everyday life
Customizable soothing techniques

    This is “re-write: a trauma workbook of creative writing “. It was a very interesting workbook about using creative writing to help with trauma healing. The entire book was enjoyable and very helpful though for me in chapter 6 “brain, body connection” it was extra insightful.

    As an addictions nurse whose company follows a trauma-informed approach, I’m completely fangirling over this book! I like how it’s written by professionals (a counselor and a psychiatrist) using evidence-based research. Trauma is a complex topic, but the authors make it accessible and actionable, beneficial for anyone who has trauma in their past or present AND those who work with it. Yes, some general readers may find parts of this workbook a challenging read, and the questions it poses for creative writing are not simple, as they often are in workbooks like this. But it’s worth the effort, as the book would have a unique ability to help a person understand their trauma, bring it to light (so it holds less power), and heal it as the reader adjusts to their new normal. The book is a true workbook—not all that proclaim to be are—and it also has information to help you better understand trauma concepts, your trauma, and what you will write about. If you consider that you have any type of trauma, from childhood or adulthood… or even the recent mass global traumatization we all suffered from COVID-19, I highly recommend this book. Also, if you are a clinician like me who works with a population known to have trauma, you will appreciate the insights it gives you that will help you help your patients.

    I received a free copy of this workbook, but that did not affect my review.

    I found this book to be a wonderful, adaptive tool. As a reader, I appreciated how flexible it is, offering suggestions so that the prompts and tools can be used as described, adjusted when needed, or ignored altogether if they aren’t a fit without judgment. As a psychologist, I found the book to be strongly rooted in science and research, and refreshingly aware of the impacts of the world around us. I love a book that acknowledges what is happening in the world, and guides us to interact with how we experience it, no matter how that might be.

    This is a life changing book that provides a great deal of information and resources about trauma. It’s different then many of the books I read on this topic as it also incorporates useful strategies to healing. I highly recommend.
