Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

An estimated 7.8 percent of all Americans will experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lives. Women are twice as likely men to develop PTSD. Roughly 5.2 million people have PTSD during the course of a given year. And PTSD can affect anyone — from war veterans and abuse victims to persons directly or indirectly traumatized by other catastrophes including crime, natural disasters, and serious accidents.

Getting treatment as soon as possible after PTSD symptoms develop may help prevent PTSD form developing into a long-term condition. Treatment may take the form of medication, psychotherapy, or alternative medicine.

What Nurses Know...PTSD covers all the treatments available today. It examines the causes of the PTSD, describes the symptoms and the effects of PTSD on individuals with the condition and their families, looks at associated problems such as substance abuse, explains what makes PTSD different in children and adolescents, shows how to manage stress, how to talk to your health care provider, and how to get help — from both traditional and nontraditional sources.

What Nurses Know ... PTSD
by Mary E. Muscari

The book was received via the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.

Everyone knows about PTSD, right? Something that combat veterans and crime victims experience? If that's what you think it's all about you'd be wrong.

This book provides a wealth of information in a useful, non-clinical way. PTSD can be caused by many things and manifest in many different ways. This book describes both acute and chronic PTSD, presentation, and potential coping methods. It will be useful for the patient who doesn't realize this is what they're experiencing, or the family member who intellectually 'gets' it but really doesn't understand. There are a multitude of useful resources, suggestions, and discussion material. There is ample space devoted to acute PTSD - the form most people are familiar with. Chronic PTSD, something unrealized by many, is addressed in useful and informative ways. Most sections of the book can be read in 'small bites' and stand alone very well. This format works well for the subject matter, because it's not something that most people can consume all at once.

There are a couple of places where a full page table is not clearly delineated from the preceding page text and it took me two or three looks to parse the information before realizing it was related, but not integral to the material on the previous page. Otherwise the book is well organized and easy to read. Overall, an excellent offering.
