Top CPTSD Books from leading Complex PTSD Authors

Ricia Fleming (officially Patricia J. Fleming) says “I’m a partially healed wounded healer with cPTSD from naCCT myself.

In this book, I’ll share with you what I’ve learned personally and professionally about how to heal.

“For twenty years I provided mind-body based psychotherapy to over 3,000 people hospitalized with chronic physical pain, depression, and PTSD.

Gradually I educated myself about myself, applying to my own challenges the concepts, language, and treatment techniques that helped victims of atrocities and disasters.

To my amazed delight, I started getting better.”

With a Ph.D in English and licensed as a social worker, mental health counselor, and massage therapist, Ricia Fleming now brings together psychology, the arts, and bodywork, drawing on four-plus decades as a therapist, educator, and hands-on healer, with a focus on healing trauma.

Trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Ricia is a long-time member of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation (NESTTD), and has served on the Executive Council of the Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Assn. (MaMHCA).

She also developed the BodyStory method, integrating direct body work, psychotherapeutic concepts and techniques, and personal narrative.
