About the Book: Recovery from trauma and PTSD is an especially vital topic these days. Trauma is emotional stress that can stem from a wide variety of upsetting experiences, leaving us feeling anxious, weighed down by negative emotions or memories, or feeling like we lack security. No one's experience and recovery from it is the same. In Traumatized: Identify, Understand, and Cope with PTSD and Emotional Stress, licensed therapist and YouTube creator Kati Morton, LMFT shares a unique perspective on trauma in the modern age.
Traumatized is an accessible guide to understanding what trauma is, how PTSD is diagnosed, being aware that it can have a late onset, what can happen if it goes untreated, and how social media can be triggering our trauma. Morton reveals how social media can positively promote mental health awareness, as well as the dark side of how social media can spread trauma.
