One of the biggest sources of anguish for people with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is that victims of the disorder are baffled as to why they haven’t been able to “be strong”, get over their trauma, and move on with their lives. They beat themselves up constantly and become more depressed and anxious as a result. Even worse, they feel misunderstood and abandoned by their loved ones, the people they count on for support.Over the author’s many years of observing and treating people with PTSD, Dr. Jones has developed a simple, intuitive Information Processing Model to help PTSD victims and their families understand why trauma victims can’t just “get over it.” The model has been embraced by both PTSD victims and loved ones alike, because it reflects exactly what they’ve been experiencing day after day.Demystifying PTSD presents this simple model in everyday language, using everyday analogies, instead of using complicated scientific terms. The model gives PTSD victims and their loved ones hope because, for the first time, they feel like somebody finally understands what they are going through.Demystifying PTSD also tackles the tricky issues of where to find treatment for PTSD, and which forms of psychological treatment are most suitable for different degrees of PTSD severity. The book is a “must have” for anybody who is either suffering from PTSD, or who suspects that their friend or loved one may have this devastating and mystifying disorder.
