The Veteran's Ptsd Handbook: How to File and Collect on Claims for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder


The Veteran's Ptsd Handbook: How to File and Collect on Claims for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of The Veteran's Survival Guide, The Veteran's PTSD Handbookaddresses the obstacles that veterans face when filing for benefits related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One of the greatest obstacles, John Roche writes, is establishing a connection between a veteran's service and PTSD. Because both combat stressors and noncombat stressors can cause PTSD and because of the difficulties in diagnosing the condition, filing a successful claim for benefits based on PTSD is difficult. In the same accessible, self-help style used in The Veteran's Survival Guide, Roche offers detailed instructions on how to prepare a well-grounded claim for veterans' benefits relating to PTSD. He also discusses the four years he spent helping one veteran establish a service connection for his PTSD claim with Veterans Affairs. This book will be required reading for any veteran or veteran's dependent who wishes to obtain his or her well-earned benefits and for those officials of veterans' service organizations who assist veterans with their claims.
