Publisher's Summary

Can you ever really recover from posttraumatic stress (PTSD)? Psychotherapist, guided imagery pioneer, and trauma expert Belleruth Naparstek says yes, and has the research to prove it. Her powerfully transformative guided meditations were found in four different clinical studies to significantly lower all three clusters of PTS symptoms by six weeks of regular listening, reducing flashbacks, nightmares, isolation, numbing, fear, shame, cynicism, and anger, while restoring a sense of inner goodness, hope, self-esteem, and meaning - all just over the course of eight weeks of regular listening.

Naparstek, the author of the award-winning book, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal, combines this physiologically balancing, psychologically sophisticated, and spiritually inspiring guided narrative with the exquisite scoring of Steven Mark Kohn's music, to deliver a depth charge of healing to survivors of combat and military sexual trauma, childhood abuse, motor vehicle accidents, criminal assault, domestic violence, natural disasters, ICU stays, and traumatic hospital experiences.

A separate track of affirmations bolsters the healing process with quick, positive reminders in a briefer format, which can be heard and enjoyed while engaged in other activities, including driving. Another track of the music alone helps to integrate and solidify the deep inner gains achieved through the other two tracks, and ensure they last.

Designed for use as a supportive supplement to other treatment approaches for PTSD, or as a stand-alone intervention, this ground breaking program is recommended and distributed by the US Veterans Administration, Kaiser Permanente, The Red Cross, the US Army, and hundreds of hospitals and treatment centers nationwide.

A great narrator

What did you love best about Healing Trauma: Guided Imagery for Posttraumatic Stress?

Naparstek's outstanding calm voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author and myself as the two are intended to connect in this meditation book.

Have you listened to any of Belleruth Naparstek’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. This one is just as good as all her other meditation books and exercises.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

That affirmations do help you to change your attitudes over time.

Any additional comments?

One of the better self help books because it is about healing solely and meditation. She doesn't advise you to do anything or be anyone--but to simply let yourself listen.

Engaging, effective and healing works of art that speak meaningfully to the conscious and unconscious mind. Wish I had found her 20 years ago!

For imaginative people with broken hearts.

An amazingly healing experience to heal your heart. Have an open mind to it, and do it often.

This Is Perfect ~ Perfect Voice and Music

This really is one of the best meditations I have ever come across, if not the best. Belleruth's voice and the script are incredibly soothing and the music is sublime. I am looking forward to listening to this one again and again.
