Loving Someone with PTSD: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Connecting with Your Partner After Trauma (Loving Someone) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can present with a number of symptoms, including anxiety, depression, flashbacks, and trouble sleeping. If your partner has PTSD, you may want to help, but find yourself at a loss.

The simple truth is that PTSD can be extremely debilitating—not just for the person who has experienced trauma first-hand, but for their partners as well. And while there are many books written for those suffering from PTSD, there are few written for the people who love them. In Loving Someone with PTSD, renowned trauma expert and author of I Cant Get Over It!, Aphrodite Matsakis, presents concrete skills and strategies for the partners of those with PTSD.

With this informative and practical book, you will increase your understanding of the signs and symptoms of PTSD, improve your communication skills with your loved one, set realistic expectations, and work to create a healthy environment for the both of you. In addition, you will learn to manage your own grief, helplessness, and fear regarding your partners condition.

PTSD is a manageable disability. While it isnt your responsibility to rescue your partner or act as his or her therapist, this book will help you be supportive and implement strategies for lessening the negative impact of PTSD—not just for your partner, but for your relationship, and, importantly, for yourself.

Synopsis:

There are many books written for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but few written for the people who love them. In Loving Someone with PTSD, a renowned trauma expert and author of I Cant Get Over It! presents concrete skills and strategies for the partners of those with PTSD. Readers will increase their understanding of the signs and symptoms of PTSD, improve their communication skills with their loved ones, set realistic expectations, and work to create a healthy environment for both their loved one and themselves. In addition, they will learn to manage their own grief, helplessness, and fear regarding their partners condition.

Synopsis:

Written to the partner of a bipolar individual, this book will help readers mend strained relationships, control episodic crises, learn which coping approaches work, and create loving, healthy relationships. Readers also learn how to recognize a bipolar conversation and survive the financial turbulence manic spending may cause.

Synopsis:

Maintaining a relationship is hard enough without the added challenges of your partners bipolar disorder symptoms. Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder offers information and step-by-step advice for helping your partner manage mood swings and impulsive actions, allowing you to finally focus on enjoying your relationship while also taking time for yourself. This book explains the symptoms of your partners disorder and offers strategies for preventing them and responding to these symptoms when they do occur.

This updated edition includes a new section about the medications your partner may be taking so that you can understand the side effects and help monitor his or her bipolar treatment. As a supportive partner, you deserve support yourself. This book will help you create a more balanced, fulfilling relationship.

Improve your relationship by learning how to:

  • Identify your partners symptom triggers so you can prevent episodes
  • Improve communication by stopping irrational “bipolar conversations”
  • Handle your partners emotional ups and downs
  • Foster closeness and connection with your partner
