In fact, up to 75 percent of all people who have experienced abuse, violence, or traumatic incidents have sleeping problems after these events, even after all other trauma-related symptoms have diminished. If you've experienced these problems for yourself, The Post-Traumatic Insomnia Workbook is for you.

This workbook is based in cognitive behavioral therapy, a powerful approach that has been proven to be more effective over the long run than sleeping pills.

You'll learn a variety of relaxation and sleep-scheduling skills that will help you put an end to broken sleep, the need to stay on high alert throughout the night, and sleep-sabotaging habits you may have developed. Why spend another night lying awake? Find the root cause of your restless nights and rediscover peaceful sleep.

This workbook will help you:*Understand what's keeping you awake at night*De-stress your bedroom and create a safe space for sleep*Learn powerful relaxation techniques for calming your body and mind before bed*Cope with trauma-related nightmares
