Dear Potential Support or Psychoeducational Group Leader:

Would you like to start a psychoeducational and/or support group for couples impacted by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD but you don't know if you have the time or ability to develop your own course outline? Well, there is no need to worry. Just plan to use my book,The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Relationship: How to Support Your Partner and Keep Your Relationship Healthy as its foundation.

See, you can do this because the book includes information and skill-building exercises designed specifically for PTSD-impacted couples. it also adheres to the resilience model—which I probably don't have to tell you is often used by psychotherapists helping clients cope with significant challenges. In addition, the book’s content is arranged so that you could teach a chapter a week. This will provide attendees with a twelve to fourteen week course chock full of information, skill-building exercises, and support without you having to struggle to organize all the content for these sessions yourself.

So, go ahead and download this leader's or facilitator's guide below right now. Furthermore, I wish you the best of luck with this noble cause upon which you're about to embark!


Diane England, Ph.D., LCSW

P.S.--You'll want to ensure that attendees have their own copy of the book. They can buy it online at Amazon.
