Beyond Trauma: A Healing Journey for Women is an evidence-based, twelve-session program created by Dr. Stephanie Covington, pioneer in the field of womens issues, addiction, and recovery. The materials are the product of both research and clinical experience and designed for trauma treatment, although the connection between trauma and addiction in womens lives is a primary theme throughout. Based on principles of relational therapy, the program uses cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness, and expressive arts.
The second edition of this best-selling program has been significantly expanded to include new sessions, and has been updated to reflect the latest research and statistics and to be compliant with DSM-5
. It also provides recommendations on how to adapt the sessions for adolescent girls.
Practical and easy-to-use, the complete program includes this facilitator guide and the following components (available separately): participant workbook, participant video, and training video featuring clinical and personal insights from the author.
In Dr. Covingtons newest edition of Beyond Trauma, she masterfully combines the depth and nuance of her original evidence-based curriculum with new and important material, including up-to-date neuroscience research and a deeper integration of mind-body approaches to healing.
