If you are searching for books on PTSD you may be looking for only general information concerning the disorder or your search may be a little more personal and important than that. I have been researching PST books for information for years and have never been able to find exactly what I was looking for so I am going to share with you what you will find in all the PTSD books and what you will NOT find in the same books.
What you will find in PTSD books:
1- Plenty of general information on PTSD and and how it is diagnosed with all the psychological jargon used in clinical settings that is mainly meant for exchange of ideas between professors and students and/or clinicians and their colleagues,
2- Theories on how PTSD can be treated and how the basis of these theories of treatment for PTSD were derived over years of observation of veterans and other sufferers of abuse including sexual, emotional and physical,
3- The history of PTSD and when it was first noticed and called “shell shock” in the veterans form the world wars and how for years, no one knew how to successfully treat the condition or even if it was real.
But here is what you WILL NOT find in books about PT SD:
1- Examples of successful treatments of PTSD,
2- An explanation of how PTSD affects the brain and why, in language you can understand,
3- How new treatments have been discovered in the last couple of years outside of the world of traditional psychotherapy and why they don’t want you to know about it.
Many approaches to treatment have changed in the last couple of years but have yet to make the main stream and have proved to hard to find for those in need. Just as other facets of technology are growing at a rapid pace, so are the techniques available to those who suffer from PTSD and the other conditions that go along with it.
What has enabled the the speed with which this technology is moving? THE INTERNET. That is why you are here, right? OD yourself a favor and do not revert to books that are outdated by the time they are published. Although those books may be good for understanding the history of PTSD, they will not be of any help where you need it. RECOVERY!
Recovery and treatment changes are moving too rapidly for books to keep up with. The internet is where it’s at, so to speak.
Rather than read the same old drivel all the psychologists who write books you can’t understand that tell you nothing more than you already knew, why not try something new and discover what’s new in the treatment of PTSD If you are looking for a way to get PTSD out of your life, do yourself a favor and look to the future of PSTD treatment
