What's on the coffee table: PTSD

I'm re-reading Aphrodite Matsakis' "I Can't Get Over It: A Handbook for Trauma Survivors." Matsakis is clinical coordinator for the Vietnam Veterans' Outreach Center in Silver Springs, Md., and has written several PTSD-related books, including "Vietnam Wives," "When the Bough Breaks: A Helping Guide for Parents of Sexually Abused Children" and "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: A Complete Treatment Guide."

BG has written several posts about TBI, including some about PTSD, in troops returning from Iraq. If you want to learn more about this subject, and the help that is possible, this is an excellent place to start.
