Healing Book Club: A Practical Guide to Complex PTSD
July 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
The Healing Book Club meets every Saturday at 4 pm eastern, for 1 hour. Calls are led by CPTSD Foundation staff member, Sabra Cain.
Participants who join each week are encouraged to read the current chapter or section only, which will be outlined by the leader during each call. This allows everyone to stay on the same page and have an open discussion on what each chapter means to them, how you can apply it to your life, agree or disagree with the thoughts of the author, and share general ideas about the content.
We welcome participation from all members during the call, however it is not required. You may interact as little or as much as you wish.

Currently, the club is reading through: A Practical Guide to Complex PTSD: Compassionate Strategies to Begin Healing from Childhood Trauma.” by Dr. Arielle Schwartz.
Repetitive trauma during childhood can impact your emotional development, creating a ripple effect that carries into adulthood. Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) is a physical and psychological response to these repeated traumatic events. A Practical Guide to Complex PTSD contains research-based strategies, tools, and support for individuals working to heal from their childhood trauma. You don’t have to be a prisoner of your past.
Learn the skills necessary to improve your physical and mental health with practical strategies taken from the most effective therapeutic methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and somatic psychology. When appropriately addressed, the wounds of your past no longer need to interfere with your ability to live a meaningful and satisfying life.
This book includes:
- Understand C-PTSD—Get an in-depth explanation of complex PTSD, including its symptoms, its treatment through various therapies, and more.
- Address the symptoms—Discover evidence-based strategies for healing the symptoms of complex PTSD, like avoidance, depression, emotional dysregulation, and hopelessness.
- Real stories—Relate to others’ experiences with complex PTSD with multiple real-life examples included in each chapter.
Start letting go of the pain from your past—A Practical Guide to Complex PTSD can help show you how.
