Recommends it for: Ptsd suffers or carers
Recommended to Tracey by: Hobart clinic
Shelves: self-help
This book has been my life safer over the many years of suffering ptsd. It is the best reference book I've purchased and well worth the money I spend. I read when I'm having a bad moment in my life caused by ptsd and it helps me alot and when i can't get into my councellor it helps me get through. it's got everything in it you need to know. Highly recommended.
