    If you own the PTSD Workbook, and have done none of the exercises within it, this is your poll.

    I've had the book for about two months now. I've used lot's of stuff out of it, but I haven't sat down and actually worked through it yet. I want to do it once I'm a little more settled with the new therapist.

    What is the PTSD workbook? Who is the author? Is it something worth buying and completing? Thanks.

    It is pretty much as the title describes... The PTSD Woorkbook. Full of exercises to help you put on paper thoughts feelings and look at the way you think and ways to help. Answer a lot of questions in it and has blanks for you to fill out. I am just starting to try to work through it. Not easy and makes you really dig in yourself. I would suggest it. By Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula.

    I would also suggest in combination buy I Can't Get Over It by Aphrodite Matsakis. That one is worth it weight in gold. It is called by others around here the "PTSD Bible" it is so good.

    I bought the two after seeing Anthony suggest it to another. I wish I had the I Can't Get Over It long ago, and I am still trying to work through the exercises of The PTSD Woorkbook. It is like a major exam, but I see how if we can complete it it would be very beneficial.

    Oh okay thanks veiled. I have "I Can't Get Over It"... my psychiatrist gave it to me a while ago but I've never read it... guess I should if it's considered so good. I will look for the workbook as well.

    I looked both books up on Amazon and read the publisher's 'blurb' and the reviews on both books. I order both today. According to Amazon, I saved money on shipping by buying both at the same time. Getting healty and saving money...does it get much better than this? :biggrin:

    I feel silly doing the exercises! I keep meaning to do some of them in my journal, which somehow feels less hokey. The info in the book is great, though.
