Mindfulness Skills for Trauma and PTSD: Practices for Recovery and Resilience. Rachel Goldsmith Turow, $36.95

Trauma touches every life, but the way that we hold our pain makes a difference. Mindfulness Skills for Trauma and PTSD provides user-friendly descriptions of the many facets of traumatic stress alongside evidence-based strategies to manage trauma symptoms and build new strengths. This book is a valuable resource for trauma survivors, health professionals, researchers, mindfulness practitioners, and others seeking new pathways to recovery and resilience.

It is normal to feel anxious or depressed after trauma, and to have upsetting thoughts and memories. Instead of fighting our feelings and blaming ourselves for what are actually common responses to trauma, mindfulness practices can help us tolerate and decrease distress, cultivate kindness towards ourselves and others, make wise choices, navigate attention, improve relationships, and relax—capacities that reduce trauma symptoms and advance our overall well-being.

Practicing the small stuff can help us with the big stuff. As we learn to notice our breathing, walking, minor frustrations or daily activities with curiosity and care, we build inner resources to skillfully handle past trauma, as well as current and future challenges. Mindfulness practices can transform self-blame into self-respect and self-compassion. We can also match specific mindfulness skills to particular trauma symptoms. For example, “grounding” with the five senses can help us when we feel overwhelmed or spaced out, and loving-kindness meditation can alleviate self-criticism.

With this book, you will explore scientifically supported mindfulness practices, plus “In their own words” sections that illustrate the skills with personal stories demonstrating how mindfulness practices have helped others recover from trauma. “Research highlight” sections showcase fascinating scientific studies that form the basis for the book's approaches. As we practice effective strategies to handle a full range of experiences, we can each find new sources of hope, connection, and peace.

The Mindfulness Solution to Pain. Jackie Gardner-Nix & Lucie Costin-Hall, Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn, $24.95

In The Mindfulness Solution to Pain, the authors modify Jon Kabat-Zinn's original mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) program to create a new program they call mindfulness based chronic pain management (MBCPM). This book provides a clear, breakdown of the MBCPM program, in which readers are introduced to the concepts of mindfulness and meditation.

From the outset, the authors explain why the mind is so important in managing pain. Initial chapters introduce the readers to how the mind processes pain, the role of life experiences, genetics, the physiology of their fight and flight responses, and the role of chronic responses in impairing healing, sleep, and other important bodily functions. The rationale for working with the mind in addition to, or instead of, the other standard interventions, is emphasized. In all, regular practice of these techniques offers a good chance of quality-of-life improvement for chronic pain sufferers.
