Publisher's Summary

We hear the terms trauma and PTSD more and more. Yet many people still believe that trauma can only result from experiences that are particularly extreme. But trauma is an emotional response that can stem from a wide variety of upsetting experiences, leaving us feeling anxious, weighed down by negative emotions or memories, or feeling like we lack security. 

As a licensed therapist, Kati Morton addresses this challenge: If we don’t have an understanding of trauma and how it’s defined, how can we work to overcome it? The urgency of meeting this challenge increases at a time when we are bombarded with a constant flow of frightening stories - about global pandemics, ecological disasters, riots, and mass shootings - that can trigger our emotional stress. We must find a balance between staying connected to the world on social media while avoiding the false facts, hate-filled comments, and passive-aggressive posts and accounts that feed negative thoughts. In Traumatized, Morton shares a unique perspective on trauma in the modern age, including: 

  • Tips to be more mindful of what we do and who we follow online, which is the key to improving our relationship with social media and stop spreading the trauma
  • Helpful therapeutic techniques to heal from childhood trauma
  • Skills to identify transgenerational trauma and begin to break harmful cycles in your home
  • Whether to seek therapy or counseling.

Ultimately, you’ll learn how to identify and cope with your triggers, pay attention to how platforms and accounts can harm your mental health, and find the tools to manage what you can see online.

Critic Reviews

"With omnipresent social media and the constant bombardment of news and information, developing a healthy sense of self is more challenging than ever. Add to that the surreal experience of living through a pandemic, and you have all the ingredients of a mental health crisis. Traumatized gives you the tools to block out the noise and focus on your emotional well-being." (Katie Couric, journalist, podcaster, and cofounder of Katie Couric Media)

“Kati has written a gentle, accessible guide to exploring every level of our emotional trauma. I cannot recommend this book enough and intend to use it to guide how I approach my own and my kids’ relationship with social media.” (Kailyn Lowry, New York Times best-selling author of A Letter of Love and Hustle and Heart)

Very informative and amazing to listen to!!

I struggle with chronic mental illness and watch Kati’s videos when I’m having a hard time, and it was so soothing to listen to Kati read her new book, Traumatized. I’ve had different therapists and psychiatrists throw around the diagnosis of PTSD before, and I have always been in denial. The abuse wasn’t that bad as a kid, right? Being attacked at work wasn’t a “real” trauma. For the first time, I’m starting to reconsider, especially now that I know about CPTSD. I’m hoping I get the courage to share what I’ve learned with my therapist and formulate a new treatment plan. Thank you, Kati, for everything! I hope you one day write a book about Borderline Personality Disorder!

Informative regarding PTSD

The narration was excellent. I had only first seen Kati on You tube possibly 2 months ago while looking to learn something about PTSD. Then she announced her new book dealing with PTSD. Most important portion was the chapters regarding complex PTSD. Looking forward to going over those chapters again.

A Healing Listen

I’m a long-time viewer of Kati’s YouTube channel, and this book is the such a validating, compassionage and healing deep dive into trauma. The harder-to-listen descriptions are balanced by people’s stories and helpful insights, which helped me stay hopeful and focused. I would recommend this book to everyone - to those of us having a rough time, who want to support their loved ones, and who want to understand just how wonderfully adaptive our brains are.

review for book

I enjoyed this book. it was in great detail. the only thing which I think could have been added is examples of real trauma victims and their story on their journey of recovery.
