Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1990, U.S. Veterans' centers have treated more than 1.6 million PTSD-affected men and women, including an estimated 100,000 from the Gulf War and an untallied total from the Iraq and Afghanistan fronts. The number also includes World War II veterans, because PTSD does not fade easily. Sufferers may experience the traumatic events in flashbacks that may seem as real as when they first occurred. Using first hand accounts, the authors offer insights into the realities of PTSD and combat trauma, and how symptoms may pervade even the most mundane of daily activities and cause sufferers to experience withdrawal, depression, violence, rage, and even suicide. In a new epilogue, the authors offer data about treatments and resources that both PTSD sufferers and their families and friends will value.

Synopsis:

Across history, the condition has been called soldier's heart, shell shock, or combat fatigue. Now more commonly known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, it is increasingly being seen in our service men and women as they return from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other combat zones. PTSD affects sufferers in various ways in their everyday lives, and sometimes the signs and symptoms are missed or simply ignored. With instances of PTSD on the rise, however, it is no longer possible to turn a blind eye. Paulson and Krippner take us into the minds of PTSD-affected veterans, as they struggle against the traumatic events they've faced in combat and the lingering effects of these experiences in their daily lives.
