Helpful info for family members - last part of the book is broken down to address different types of trauma (sexual, military). Good self-care info.

Very good book. Gives great insight into the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder condition. Very good for people who know someone who has this condition, but for those in the condition to read aswell. Very easy and interesting read an easy vocabulary and tackling the issue directly with easy going sentences. Talks about theory but puts in in practic aswell, very happy with this read. Would strongly recommend.

Bought this to try to explain to my brother about the illness I've tried to hide from him for nearly his entire lifetime... very pleased with the information and the manner in which it's shared. It's straightforward and gives the information I want him to know. It even has a special section about sexual trauma.

Authors are PhDs in clinical psychology, she at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

Well written in lay terms, well organized, good examples. Learned a lot.

One chapter about soldiers and some of the examples. Cognitive Behavior Therapy highly successful if person is willing to work at it.

Positive, informative. Lists resources.
