Description

The causes of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder range from severe neglect to monstrous abuse. Many survivors grew up in houses that were not homes-in families that were as loveless as orphanages and sometimes as dangerous. If you felt unwanted, unliked, rejected, hated, and/or despised for a lengthy portion of your childhood, trauma may be deeply engrained in your mind, soul, and body.  

This book is a practical guide to recovering from lingering childhood trauma. It is copiously illustrated with examples of the author's and his clients' journeys of recovering. It is a comprehensive self-help guide for working through the toxic legacy of the past and for achieving a rich and fulfilling life.

Needs a PDF

Lots and lots of references to "this exercise" or "this list" but no way to get those other than to buy a hard copy of the book. Please add a PDF so those tool are available to listeners.

BUY THIS BOOK!

WOW! I am not exaggerating when I say that I have purchased or read hundreds of books trying to get help for my mental health. I am a compulsive overeater, workaholic, busyaholic and a binge drinker. I have tried AA OA AlAnon, ACOA. I have prayed and tried several religions. I am a Catholic. I literally tried everything to overcome my sadness, shame, depression and low self esteem. Some things did help me some. THIS BOOK is amazing. I saw how many stars it had and wanted to try it. I love Audible because you can return books and I have returned some that were just "stories" and not helpful. I KNOW I have a problem. Most just get you to realize you need help. I have also been to therapists and tried several medications over the last 35 years. I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety. I felt shame because I have never been to battle and felt that soldiers who saw war and suffered PTSD had the "right" to have PTSD. I felt shame saying I had PTSD because I never saw what they did. This book is amazing. It tells my story EXACTLY. It made me feel understood and validated. I have PTSD because of the home I grew up in. This book validates my emotional abuse. This book changed my life. It gave me hope and my relationships with healthy people are better than I ever imagined and I broke free from the toxic people. YOU REALLY owe it to yourself to get this book. It will give you happiness you never believed possible. It is not a long set of chapters letting you know you have a problem. It offers solutions.

Unreal

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and I had been trying to figure out my own family of origin issues. This book single-handedly changed my life and allowed me to just be. I cannot fit a review about this book without becoming a dissertation. Instead I'll just say this: If you are a therapist that works with trauma, read this book. If you are a regular person who has had an abusive past, read this book. If you are a regular person and you know a friend who has experienced abuse, read this book. If you are trying to be a better person, read this book. If you want to understand human psychology in the most intensive and deeply emotional ways, read this book. Thank you for taking the time to read this review. Best of luck in your journey <3

Brought me clarity and powerful tools to heal...

This book was the most empowering book I have ever read (listened to) to date. I never knew I had Cptsd until I found this book, it has opened a window in my world and shed light on what I did not understand within myself. The author being able to relate and offer tools on overcoming Cptsd was a huge comfort. Since finishing this book the fog has truly lifted in my life. I can not thank the author enough for this book, he has given hope and healing to so many souls. The narrator delivering this book read it beautifully, he had a kind and clear voice it was appreciated. This is a must read/listen to book!

Powerful, haunting, and on-point

This is the best book on the trauma suffered by survivors of narcissistic, abusive parents. Walker breaks down the four main patterns of scarring, and explains the process of recovery in clear, empathetic, and caring way.

Good God..

The book is groundbreaking and essential. It has had a profound impact on me, and I am beyond grateful. Luckily, I started reading it before listening to it. The voiceover artist is grossly miscast! He sounds like a voiceover for an action movie! It’s utterly illogical and BEYOND disconcerting. Why it didn’t occur to them to use a compassionate, soothing voice with such delicate material is puzzling.

Now ... they tell me!

At 67, I 'm overjoyed to find a "feels right" explanation after searching for 60+ years to find ways to fix myself. I'm not sure what good it will do and, I have enough of the glossary to know how arduous the journey might be but, I am undaunted! Pete Walker did the absolute best for ME ... he revealed enough of his personal experience for me to "feel" his honesty! Gotta say, in all my varied therapy ... Starting approximately 60 years ago, when I was 7, it was strongly suggested my Mother get me some help! Certainly far from helpful, my Mother choose a hypnotist (he had scrapbooks in the waiting room with newspaper clippings and, I could read!) My Mother was looking for truth ... and she had already made that an active and ongoing threat! I was terrified. By 16, I'd become a ward of the Court and, therapy was a mandate. When I turned 18 ... I was hell-bent to prove "them" all wrong! I was not broken ... I jumped on every couch ... read all the books ... in a questing frenzy for Why! I'd racked up 20+ years sobriety as a 12 step black belt who introduced herself as an AHOLIC ... chocolate, shopping, sex, drugs and, rock 'n roll .... anything ... If I liked it ... I overdo ...OCD 'till I'd OD! By the time I was 40, I'd garnered a plethora of professionals, been both best and worst patient ... a worthy subject for one's Master's Thesis and, another's Doctorial Dissertation; two psychotic breaks; two hospital recoveries, and a dozen years of ... Can't change being dropped on your head at two! Move on ... But I had a dirty little secret ... crazy was catching up! ... My physical health was deteriorating and, I knew two things for sure ... I was no longer ME and, I could not/would not disembowel myself ever again within the male-dominated, emotionless qwacks practicing pseudoscience who, could not name a single patient they'd helped! Here was a clear and concise description of my progression. Nailed it! Anxiety-driven curiosity in the driver's seat ... Too old ... too tired ... too late sarcastic defeatist riding shotgun ... CPTSD for Dummies roadmap ... Petal-to-the-metal ... 3 ... 2... GO! We should all know never say never ... And the gods laugh when you make plans ... I was 61 when I heard Early Childhood PTSD AND, the coat fit ... almost but, treatment was iffy ... and VA Mental Health is limited, unstable and destabilizing. So I was gobsmacked 10 days ago when I stumbled into a TED fellow talking about a subset of PTSD, Complex PTSD! OMG!!! I watched everything YouTube, TED and more, but this beautiful tomb actually has it all! Descriptions, vocabulary, some authority but, he knows what I do ... How my brain works. He presents the pros and cons, forwarning and, in turn, forearming! I was triggered by the information alone and, had to be taken in small and mindful bites! I chose to listen from beginning to end first ... no more than a chapter of two at a time. Chomping at the bit to dive deep ... Audiobook served its purpose ... I am now ordering a hard-cover text book, to highlight and flag ... Time to suit up and, do the work! I have everything I need in my very capable hands. Exercises, worksheets ... clear options, clear instructions and, what success looks like! Time frames, expectations and caution signs. Suggestions for further reading, therapeutic references and referrals! I can feel light coming and, am not catastrophising a big train ... Good enough is at work and, I can already quiet the critic ... Well worth the double purchase ... One to loan and one owner's manual!

Fantastic, deep, and honest.

This is an excellent self-help/psychlogical book. One of the best I have read and as a psychiatrist, I can say that it is as good as anything I have read.

great book

love the book! wish the narrator would read with more emotion and fluctuation in his voice. it sounds like he's a professional box office movie trailer voiceover but that doesn't work for this kind of book

Narrator doesn't enunciate...

Really glad I've got the paper copy, this was unbearable. What? What? Repeatedly having to rewind, made it about 7 minutes into chapter 1 before I returned it. Just no.

Practical guide with many examples

I particularly benefitted from the practical advice and the many insights into the authors own recovery journey and the one of his patients. I experienced the same that first I needed lot of critic shrinking before I could slowly begin to grieve my childhood pain of being neclected.
