Heart BOOKS on Adulthood CPTSD?

Hey everyone! I've been diagnosed with C-PTSD after experiencing 3 years of lots and lots of different traumas (as I'm sure you're all familiar with!)

All of this happened within my adulthood. I know that people speak highly of Pete Walker's book, but (from what I understand) this is mainly about childhood trauma & so I'm hesitant to buy it.

Does anyone have any great resources/ book recommendations to help with CPTSD that developed in adulthood?

Thank you all!

I don't have any first-hand knowledge with regard to this. However here's a link to an article, from PC's archives, that discusses a book on cPTSD the article writer considers to have been an important contribution to the literature:

Complex Trauma: Dissociation, Fragmentation, and Self Understanding

Hi, I think Pete Walker can be used universally, even for adult trauma. I highly recommend it.

Thank you for sharing this PC article!

I ordered the book and also listened to a UTube talk by the author, Janina Fisher, and it put some pieces together. I can’t wait for my book to come!

I like Pete Walker also. The Tao of Fully Feeling helped me so much.
