Traumatic life experiences can be devastating and they inevitably shape who you are. Such events can also become a powerful force that awakens you to an undercurrent of your own aliveness. Trauma recovery involves learning to trust in your capacity for new growth. In order to grow, we must make use of our suffering in order to find our happiness.

Within these pages, you will find an invitation to see yourself as the hero or heroine of your own life journey. A hero’s journey involves walking into the darkness on a quest for wholeness. This interactive format calls for journaling and self-reflection, with practices that guide you beyond the pain of your past and help you discover a sense of meaning and purpose in your life. Successful navigation of a hero’s journey provides opportunities to discover that you are more powerful than you had previously realized.

Written by Dr. Arielle Schwartz, bestselling author of The Complex PTSD Workbook, this healing guide provides a step-by-step approach to trauma recovery that integrates:
– Mindfulness & yoga
– Somatic psychology
– EMDR therapy
– Parts work therapy
– Relational therapy

    5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I got it

    I’ve been using this book until I can get a stable therapist and it’s helped immensely. The perspectives the author gives are amazing and I love that there is space to reflect after each chapter. It’s beginner friendly to someone going down the self-help road but I could also see it being a conversation starter when working with someone else. All in all it’s a great resource!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent authentic reflection

    Helpful for survivors of trauma who are still suffering from triggers, anxiety, guilt, and shame. Encourages authentic reflection of long held beliefs. Requires personal commitment to question the true causes of thinking and acting.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful!

    What a wealth of information. This book is a breath of fresh air and hope. We don’t have to stay “stuck.” There are skills we can learn and resilience we can cultivate. Dr. Schwartz writes with wisdom, compassion and professional clarity. If you are willing to invest time and energy into the work it can truly be transformative.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Super helpful to solidify building resources while in therapy

    My therapist recommended the book soon after it came out and I cannot say enough good about it. I have been reading this alongside EMDR therapy and it has been such a great tool. The author has many resources for a person to utilize, complimenting resources that my therapist has taught me, and the book has helped me to solidify which ones works best for me in my practice. I can read it in small chunks and share with my therapist weekly what stood out.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books written on healing from trauma

    I’ve done extensive research and reading over the last decade regarding trauma and healing. This is one of the best books written for the topic with the most practical approaches, experiences/applications, and advice. Arielle Schwartz, PhD is wonderful to listen to (I’ve attended two conferences where she remained a top speaker), and someone that knows how to walk this journey WITH a survivor in her book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great guild for any hero(ion) s journey!

    This is a clear concise self help book. It is a fantastic companion to a Theraputic relationship, offering homework that probably isn’t being assigned, but a thinking compendium to help sort through the thoughts, feelings & sensations brought up in therapy . It helps one delve deeper to gain a greater understanding of their journey, building on the Theraputic process. It opens areas of contemplation for further therapy sessions and growth.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for ptsd survivors

    This book is very helpful for those of us with complex ptsd. She explains things in very understandable language. Each concept is written in short easy to read sections. It is an excellent complement to therapy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A GIFT FOR ALL OF US.

    An extraordinary guide through the non-linear process of trauma recovery, written with the wisdom of a deep, compassionate, skillful Teacher and Therapist. This is a book to be savoured and worked with slowly, in sections over time, alone or explored in therapy. For those just beginning, the first two Chapters are a remarkably gentle introduction to the terrain of trauma and healing, of therapy and resilience. The mid-section explores the ‘heavy lifting’ of trauma work, best supported by a secure therapeutic relationship. The final two chapters weave together the extraordinary gifts of transformation inviting us to explore the deepest meaning-making that is so often the ‘silver lining’ of recovery. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to laypersons, clients, and Clinicians – both seasoned and emerging. A gift for all of us. – The Trauma Project

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource

    I purchased this book after attending a training with Dr. Schwartz on trauma. This is a great tool to use with clients who have experienced trauma. A couple of my clients have already purchased and find it very helpful as we work through the chapters and exercises together.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Wise; Tender and Compassionate

    I loved this books as a Therapist, but even more so as human being who is healing from her own stories. Schwartz did an incredible job sharing easy, but meaningful activities, questions and tools to guide the reader in growth. This is a book I know I will refer to often as well as recommend to my clients.
