Synopsis

In his landmark book, The Time Paradox, internationallyknown psychologist Philip Zimbardo showed that we can transform theway we think about our past, present, and future to attain greatersuccess in work and in life. Now, in The Time Cure, Zimbardohas teamed with clinicians Richard and Rosemary Sword to reveal agroundbreaking approach that helps those living with post-traumaticstress disorder (PTSD) to shift their time perspectives and movebeyond the traumatic past toward a more positive future.

Time Perspective Therapy switches the focus from past topresent, from negative to positive, clearing the pathway for thebest yet to come: the future. It helps PTSD sufferers pull theirfeet out of the quicksand of past traumas and step firmly on thesolid ground of the present, allowing them to take a step forwardinto a brighter future. Rather than viewing PTSD as a mentalillness the authors see it as a mental injury—a normalreaction to traumatic events—and offer those suffering fromPTSD the healing balm of hope.

The Time Cure lays out the step-by-step process of TimePerspective Therapy, which has proven effective for a wide range ofindividuals, from veterans to survivors of abuse, accidents,assault, and neglect. Rooted in psychological research, the bookalso includes a wealth of vivid and inspiring stories fromreal-life PTSD sufferers—effective for individuals seekingself-help, their loved ones, therapists and counselors, or anyonewho wants to move forward to a brighter future.
