About the Author

Pete Walker is a licensed marriage and family psychotherapist with degrees in social work and counseling psychology. He has been working as a counselor, lecturer, writer, and group leader for thirty-five years; and as a trainer, supervisor and consultant of other therapists for twenty years. Pete lives and luxuriates in family life with his wife and nine year old son in the San Francisco Bay Area. He enjoys his art work, gardening, hiking, and reading to his son. Pete also holds certificates in supervision from The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and from The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley. Pete is a general practitioner who specializes in helping adults recovering from growing up in traumatizing families, especially those whose repeated exposure to childhood abuse and/or neglect left them with symptoms of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). He has a great deal of recovery from his own CPTSD, and his professional approach is highly enriched by his own forty-year journey of recovering. Petes articles on a multi-modal approach to treating CPTSD have been published in a number of therapy magazines and websites. His therapeutic approach is eclectic and Relational (Intersubjective). He guides the therapeutic process with values that include empathy, vulnerability, authenticity, and mutuality. Petes first book, The Tao of Fully Feeling: Harvesting Forgiveness Out Of Blame, has been acclaimed by many therapists, recovery websites, and clients as a powerful, compassionate, and pragmatic tool for guiding recovery.

Pete Walker, M.A., LMFT has a private practice in Berkeley, California. He has been working as a counselor, lecturer, writer and group leader for forty years, and as a trainer, supervisor and consultant of other therapists for 40 years.

Pete specializes in helping adults who were traumatized in childhood, especially those whose repeated exposure to abuse and/or neglect left them with the symptoms of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [CPTSD].

Pete's NEWEST BOOK, "Homesteading in the Calm Eye of the Storm: A Therapist Navigates His OWN CPTSD", is a sequel to his best-selling book "Complex PTSD", which is described below. "Homesteading" illustrates the processes of recovering with examples from the author's own recovery process. It is a memoir written in narrative, easy-to-read narrative, that is rich, poignant, funny and full of self-disclosive anecdotes that are sure to help other survivors in their recovery. Many have also said that it greatly reduced their sense of shame and gave them hope and motivation for the journey of recovering. It is written in the spirit of singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile's verse: "You can dance in a hurricane, but only if you're dancing in the eye".

Pete's FIRST BOOK, "The Tao of Fully Feeling: Harvesting Forgiveness Out of Blame", has been acclaimed by many therapists and clients as a powerful, compassionate and pragmatic tool for guiding recovery. It contains practical, in depth guidelines for safely working with the anger and tears of grieving. It also provides a great deal of effective self-reparenting advice. Alice Miller, author of "The Drama of the Gifted Child", wrote: "Pete Walker wrote a book about his own recovery from emotional numbness. The author passionately explores as thoroughly as possible the role of emotions in human life. The result is not only a moving, honest recount but also an informative guide for people who want to become more aware of their buried feelings. Walker's well explained concept of 'reparenting' will help them go through this fascinating process in a safe, protected way."

Pete's SECOND BOOK, "Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving" is a comprehensive, user-friendly, self-help guide to recovering from all the the lingering effects of childhood trauma. It is an overview of the tasks of recovering, and an illumination of the silver linings that can come out of effective recovery work. It is also a map of the recovery process, and contains a great many practical tools and techniques for recovering from CPTSD. It is also richly illustrated with examples of his own and others' journeys of recovering.

"Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving" is also now available in SPANISH from Amazon.com. When you go to Amazon, type in the Spanish title: "TEP COMPLEJO: De Sobrevivir a Prosperar".

"Complex PTSD..." is also available in GERMAN at Amazon, as Posttraumatische Belastungsstörungand

It will also be available in CHINESE by March, 2020, and by the end of 2020 should be available in PORTUGUESE and RUSSIAN. Further info about purchasing these options can be found at the author's website by Googling: "Pete Walker and Complex PTSD", or via email: petewalker@earthlink.net
