Publisher's Summary

Many people have heard of trauma and PTSD. But when we think of PTSD, many of us think of nightmares and flashbacks that are related to one traumatic incident or event that has been experienced by the sufferer. There is another form of PTSD that's related to being exposed to repetitive trauma. It is called Complex PTSD, coined by a woman named Judith Herman.

In this audiobook, we will first explain Complex PTSD and trauma as it relates to Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS). We will also discuss how AIWS relates to migraines, stress, and food intolerances. We will then touch base on who exactly is prone to experience Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, what the symptoms are, and how one can seek relief from this mysterious brain disturbance.

What is Complex PTSD? How does it relate to Alice in Wonderland Syndrome? Complex PTSD is a disorder which alters a person's cognitive state, personality, and emotional states due to repeated exposure to events in which the person feels incapable or helpless.

These events can be an abusive romantic relationship or childhood physical abuse. Traumatic events can include a death, an infidelity, a complicated birth, a medical or mental illness, a job loss, and many other events. Events that cause people stress and dysfunction can also include natural disasters, school bullying, rape, theft, mugging, automobile accidents, and physical injury.

PTSD or Complex PTSD can be caused by nearly any event in which a person feels an overall lack of control in reference to what is occurring. They feel hopeless, helpless, weak, or powerless during the event because of circumstances or actions that may be out of their control.

Unbelievable

I can't believe there are other people who experience the same thing I have hidden my whole life. I have never spoken of or sought after the distortions I have had in my mind. I feel relief and excitement all at the same time. I will be continuing my own education about AIWS and seek counseling. Thank you for this research.

Interesting & well written but not in depth enough for me.

I enjoyed this book, it certainly covered some questions I had & cleared up some minor points, however, I was looking for something more in depth & will check out the websites offered.

This book would be a good starting point to give to the partner of someone who suffers from PTSD or Alice in Wonderland Syndrome.

It's not overly long or full of difficult technical jargon & gives a brief insight into the conditions. A partner would find it quite easy reading without being completely overwhelmed by the insidious depths of despair that these conditions can induce.

Basic info

This book just describes the syndrome.
I was hoping for some insights and tips...
although the book goes into details about the causes and symptoms of the syndrome.
I could’ve gotten the definition out of YouTube.
Was looking for a bit more. But for the price, i guess it was worth it...

30 minutes wasted

This book was a 30 minute repetition of defining AIWS and then in the last few minutes says that being lactose intolerant is the cause for most people.

not good

No evidence is given for any of the claims made, or information given. The writer has no qualifications in psychiatry or psychology, nor does she claim to speak from personal experience. it is repetitive but actually says very very little.

Very Short

Extremely short, basically just an introduction to all the above. Explaining what they are but not how to overcome or treat. 28 minutes long. I was hoping for a self help, although the information was interesting and explained to difference between each disorder.
