I wish someone would recommended me this book.

If you are going thru a situation dealing with a Love one with PTSD this is the right book to start understanding the situation you are in. The book is simple for a non healthcare professionals and at the same time with enough article citations for healthcare personnel that want to expand their knowledge.

I wish therapists would recommend this type of book to patients or caregivers and make the recovery process easier and faster for both sides. I wish that would have been my case when I had to deal with my love one diagnosed with PTSD. I went thru so much frustration before start looking for the reason of her behavior. After reading the book I felt I was equipped with the tools to assist her in the recovery process. I am disappointed her therapist never suggested to her or me.

Great book and very practical.
