The Gentling Workbook: For Teens and Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

Author(s) : William Krill

Paperback, 120 pages.

Item #992768

Gentling is a therapeutic approach to people who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse as children and have acquired Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result. Gentling has redefined PTSD in child abuse survivors by identifying child-specific behavioral signs commonly seen, and offers a means to individualize treatment and measure therapeutic outcomes through understanding each suffering individual’s unique symptom profile. The practical and easily understood Gentling approaches and techniques can be learned by clinicians, spouses, and adolescent and adult survivors of child abuse and all other caregivers in relationship to survivors. The approach can effect real and lasting healing. (From back cover.)
