Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: The Victim's Guide to Healing and Recovery by Raymond B., Jr. Flannery "These acts result in psychological trauma with its states of terror and fear, and symptoms that may include hypervigilence, exaggerated startle response, sleeplessness, and recurring intrusive memories of the event. Such events and their aftermath often lead to avoidance of the traumatic situation and withdrawal from other life activities as well. In time, psychological trauma becomes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the effects of PTSD, if left untreated, may last until death.
It need not be this way. There are good interventions that victims can utilize for themselves and with their therapists. For many years, my victim patients asked where they could learn more about PTSD. Since there was no book on the topic, I wrote this one so that the basic information about psychological trauma and PTSD would be available. Many victims and their therapists have found this book to be of remarkable help."
Trust After Trauma: A Guide to Relationships for Survivors and Those Who Love Them by Aphrodite Matsakis "This book is simply outstanding, This book is wonderful. It provides information so that trauma survivors understand their emotions, and behavior, it also offers insight for loved ones and partners of trauma survivors. I recommend it and have recommended it to many people. I can only thank the author for her work!"
Too Scared to Cry: Psychic Trauma in Childhood by Lenore Terr "Unforgettable insight into the effects of early trauma, After many years of fostering displaced and traumatized children, this book gave me landmark understanding of their emotional state and behaviors. I will never forget the recurring themes of the young children at play and have since found observing play as a valuable tool in unraveling the mysteries of trauma in toddlers. I am especially intrigued by the effects of pre-verbal trauma since many of the babies that have come through my home, or stayed by adoption, have told their "trauma stories" through their behaviors. They have no words yet to describe their experiences. The effects of sexual trauma at a very early age are well described in this book. It is something most of us would rather not think about, much less deal with on a daily basis in a three year old. This book has helped me do that. Another book that was very helpful along these lines was Unspeakable Acts, an account of a daycare sexual abuse case in Florida. While very graphic and detailed, more journalistic in style, it helped me recognize the many symptoms and effects of sexual abuse on very young children and also gave me insight into the bizarre psyches of the perpetrators."
Adult Children of Abusive Parents: A Healing Program for Those Who Have Been Physically, Sexually, or Emotionally Abused by Steven Farmer "A history of a childhood abuse is not a life sentence. Here is hope, healing, and a chance to recover the self lost in childhood. Drawing on his extensive work with Adult Children, and on his own experience as a survivor of emotional neglect, therapist Steven Farmer demonstrates that through exercises and journal work, his program can help lead you through grieving your lost childhood, to become your own parent, and integrate the healing aspects of spiritual, physical, and emotional recovery into your adult life."
