i was dissapointed

Aesthetically, this workbook is different from what you might expect from a self-help workbook. The cover has a lovely softness that invites you to hold it in your hands and just notice. The size of this workbook is smaller than the usual 8.5 x 11 where you might feel compelled to sit at a desk and “do your homework.” Rather, Dr. Schwartz’s book feels more like a book that you might curl up with on the couch, along with your favorite pen, to reflect at the end of chapters and note the passages that resonate with your experience. Each chapter begins with an image, a window into nature, a place of simple but profound beauty. Brief passages of wisdom and reassurance are easily accessible by just flipping through the book and noticing the orange text near your fingertips. Passages in blue text convey the real experiences of individuals healing from C-PTSD and thus, reminding the reader that they are not, in fact, alone.
This workbook is empowering and a companion for individuals who have experienced childhood trauma, a comprehensive overview for those interested in understanding more about C-PTSD, and a valuable tool for professionals to share with their clients as they partner on the journey toward healing from C-PTSD.

This excellent book has helped me a great deal to come to terms with my traumas, and I have been taught numerous beneficial tips from it.
I thoroughly recommend that you purchase this book if you or a loved one are cursed by this crippling and life-ruining ailment.
I have been reliabily informed that it is well written and provides a clear and structured way of understanding this topic and has exercises and sections which allow you to make notes and track your own development.
