Mindfulness-Based Skills to Overcome and Recover from Prolonged Toxic Stress
You can move past toxic stress, let go of fear and anger, and build resilience! This workbook will show you how.
Do you often feel sad, anxious, angry, or upset and don’t really know why? Do you no longer enjoy the things you used to enjoy, or feel like the world is a bad place? If you’ve experienced extreme stress or trauma—such as abuse, neglect, a family member's illness, or living through a natural disaster—you may need help healing and moving forward in your life. It’s important to know that you are not alone, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Most importantly, there are ways to feel better.
Written by an expert in teen mental health, this healing workbook offers powerful skills to help you overcome the effects of toxic stress, trauma, and adversity using mindfulness, neuroplasticity, and emotion regulation. You’ll learn all about how your mind and body respond to stress, how to identify triggers, and how to ground and calm yourself in the moment when your emotions feel too big to handle.
If you’re struggling with the effects of stress or trauma, you should know that you can move forward in your life with confidence, self-compassion, and resilience. This workbook will help you, every step of the way.
