Dial It Down: A Wellness Approach for Addressing Post-Traumatic Stress in Veterans, First Responders, Healthcare Workers, and Others

De (autor): Faota


Trauma is perhaps the defining feature of our time. Millions of Americans have recently experienced trauma through their work as military servicemembers, first responders, and frontline medical workers. Millions more have faced unprecedented levels of loss and traumatic stress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But very little has been written that directly speaks to these trauma survivors, offering proven daily strategies and hope for reclaiming a sense of safety, connectedness, and self. Dial It Down offers innovative yet simple ways for readers to understand and recover from post-traumatic stress. It is also an invaluable resource for the practitioners who treat these individuals. Dr. Judith Kimball draws on the latest scientific research and on her years of experience working with trauma survivors to reveal that while trauma is often seen purely as a mental health issue, it also leads to physical changes in how the brain reacts to stimuli from the environment, creating a bias toward a fight-or-flight response. This fight-or-flight hyperarousal is important for staying alive during trauma, but it can persist when the trauma is over, severely limiting the ability to participate fully in life, including in relationships with family and friends. The book includes client histories to demonstrate the often-subtle effects of trauma. An Iraq War veteran who'd become hyper-alert to things out of place as signs of danger is ashamed to find himself suddenly losing it with his children over cluttered toys when he returns home. A nurse, after months of working on a COVID-19 ward, finds herself being strongly startled by noises at home such as beeping household appliances that had never bothered her before. Countless husbands and wives face unexpected issues with physical intimacy after trauma, as fight-or-flight hyperarousal can change patterns of sexual response and lead to misunderstandings, self-doubt, and a heightened sense of isolation. Along with each of these stories and many more, Dr. Kimball offers inspiring examples and strategies for personal transformation. Dial It Down will reshape how individuals understand their responses to life after trauma, and will provide the tools needed to heal. The book offers proven methods for assessing fight-or-flight hyperarousal, and for designing self-treatment programs using common activities--some as brief as 5 minutes--with specific tips to fit them into busy lives and increase their effectiveness.
