For May nonfiction Jennifer chose PTSD: Horror in the Mind: The psychology of post-traumatic stress disorder, and the ethical way to lift it by Mark Tyrrell.

Jennifer's reasoning:
"I particularly like case study books alongside the educational content because it brings more of an understanding and depth to (in this case) PTSD. Mark has looked at different approaches to treatment and looks at which treatment would be most suitable. I find that having a reason to look forward always helps and even if you are reading it for yourself and not a 'client' you will still gain the value from it.

Mark also leads on from 9 articles on PTSD from his blog: 1) Is your client traumatized? 2) Could it be PTSD? 3) Is it crucial to identify the initial event that created a trauma pattern? 4) Why there's no need to relive the trauma all over again 5) Why I never have my clients relive their traumatic experiences 6) Why PTSD and phobias are a case of bad hypnosis 7) Is trauma locking your client in depression? 8) Helping your client readjust to life after trauma 9) Encouraging post-traumatic growth in your client.

It is free to read on Amazon Kindle and it is just 99p to buy in the UK.

I look forward to hearing how you get on and discussing this book."

RM(Alwaysdaddygirl) (alwaydaddygirl) | 543 comments Other things happen. Life can be worst. I will hopefully try this book tonight.

RM(Alwaysdaddygirl) (alwaydaddygirl) | 543 comments I finished it! I have so many questions. Need some time to think.

If I may, I was getting the impression from this book that PTSD victims will always have this trauma in this brain but there are ways to overcome this.
Meaning that PTSD will no longer control their life. Am I correct?
