ÿGentlingÿis 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 understoodÿGentlingÿapproaches 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. With theÿGentling Workbook, you will: Learn how to gently explore and process your abuse history, at your own pace and comfort levelGain the practical, and effective treatment tools that really help to reduce PTSD discomfortsLearn how to manage the often intense reactivity seen in stress episodesUse the Stress Profile to understand your own unique symptom profile and to guide your healing process Praise for Krill's Gentling model "William Krill reminds us that 'gentleness is free', but the methodology and philosophy he puts into designing a protocol for treating stress disordered children is priceless. In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all too often treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for how to adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child." --Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com "William Krill's approach to treating PTSD in abused children employs a common sense oriented treatment that will not only help the child but will direct the clinician through the 'where do I go next?' question. This book is so needed in the world of PTSD and provides step-by-step understanding and treatment of the battered child." --Marjorie McKinnon, Author ofÿRepair for Kids: A Children's Program for Recovery from Incest & Childhood Sexual Abuse Learn more at www.Gentling.org From the New Horizons in Therapy Series Loving Healing Press www.LHPress.com

Panic attacks are scary, and can make you feel like you’ve lost control—leading to more anxiety, stress, fear, and even depression. This easy-to-use workbook provides step-by-step instructions to help you identify anxiety-inducing thoughts, mindfully observe them, and stop the cycle of panic, once and for all. If you’re like many other teens with a panic disorder, you may sometimes feel like walls are closing in on you, or that something dreadful is about to happen. The most frustrating thing about panic attacks is that they can happen anytime, anywhere—sometimes when you least expect them—and you may go through your day fearing another attack. So, how can you start managing your panic before it gets in the way of school, friends, and your life? In The Panic Workbook for Teens, three anxiety specialists will show you how to identify anxiety-causing thoughts and behaviors, mindfully observe your panic attacks instead of struggling against them, and experience sensations associated with panic until you discover that these sensations may be uncomfortable—but not dangerous. No matter what situation you find yourself in, by learning how to objectively monitor your panic attacks, you'll gain a sense of control and learn to work through even the toughest moments of extreme anxiety—whether you’re taking a test, on a first date, or at a job interview.
