This 130-page book by No Panic’s President, Professor Kevin Gournay defines, teaches and explains the nature of PTSD after distressing experiences such as war, sexual abuse or rape, natural and man-made disasters, car accidents, or the death of a loved one. It emphasizes early treatment and addresses all types of trauma.
A traumatic event can turn your world upside down – but there is a way out. Once thought to be a rare condition, PTSD is a natural reaction to disaster and trauma in our lives. In addition, up to 25% of people have significant related problems such as anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. Symptoms include flashbacks, emotional numbness, acute anxiety, and physical reactions such as increased heart rate and nausea.
