The latest superhero therapy self-guide from pioneering clinical psychologist Dr Janina Scarlet is an essential post-pandemic guide to establishing your survivor story in the wake of a trauma or hugely life-changing event.
How do we survive when it feels like our world has ended?
This interactive book is for anyone that has experienced trauma and feels the after-effects of fear, panic, worry, anxiety, anger or depression.
You will join a group of other survivors who have lived through extraordinary times and situations, including a doctor who saw many patients die in a pandemic, a firefighter who feels ashamed about developing anxiety after a major tragedy, a nurse who lost a sibling in a school shooting, and others affected by a global health crisis and trauma in differing ways.
This self-help manual is based on the techniques of Superhero Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and will teach you the skills of acceptance, mindfulness, self-compassion, sense of purpose and commitment to action, as well as helping you to develop your own survivor story.
This is the first book of its kind to help us deal with the realities and mental health impact of a world emerging from the unprecedented effects of COVID-19, as well as other natural disasters and violence.
