Libbi Palmer, PsyD, is a licensed psychologist in the Denver, CO, area. She specializes in working with victims of crimes and other trauma. She is also an adjunct professor at the University of Northern Colorado, where she teaches a course about recovery from disaster and trauma.
"Palmer has a powerful grasp on the needs of teenagers and a
user-friendly approach to trauma recovery. This workbook provides
hands-on tools, easily accessible by a teen working through trauma
alone, or for treatment providers looking for a framework to help
adolescent clients overcome trauma. Work through this book and find
a road to peace."
--Ambra Born, PsyD, Director of child psychological services at Reaching HOPE in Lakewood, CO
"Palmer has provided teens with a terrific resource to
understand, process, and heal from trauma. The book is quite
comprehensive but easy to use, and gives teens the power to choose
at what level they want to work through their issues. These are
techniques that really work to help teens move on from bad
experiences and feel better."
--Carrie Merscham, PsyD, psychologist and author of the blog selfhelponthego.com
"To date, resources specifically for traumatized teens have not
been readily available, despite the fact that many experience
traumatic events during childhood and into their teen years. This
book, The PTSD Workbook for Teens, offers much-needed
information aimed at the special needs of this population. Author
Libbi Palmer addresses the main after-effects of trauma and offers
practical information and worksheets to help teen readers work
through their symptoms and reestablish safety, personal control,
and positive self-esteem. I highly recommend it."
