Topics Covered In This Book

History of PTSD

Although PTSD has been around since the beginning of humanity, it wasn't added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders until 1980. In other times in American history, PTSD was referred to as other things.

What Causes PTSD

PTSD is not limited to one demographic or a single type of trauma. It's not limited to an age group, gender, or socioeconomic background. While many may develop mental disorders from trauma in their life, PTSD is reserved for a distinct type of trauma.

Symptoms of PTSD

PTSD has a fairly clear set of symptoms that make it unique from other mental disorders. PTSD may not look the same in every person, and not all people will experience the same severity of symptoms.

Types of PTSD

Although major symptoms are similar across the board, there are different types of PTSD. Depending on what type of PTSD someone has, their symptoms may be more severe or long-lasting, or they may require different types of therapeutic treatments.

PTSD & Relationships

It's no secret that PTSD can strain relationships, particularly with a spouse or partner. This book will look at some of the things you can do to support loved ones with PTSD.

Treatments for PTSD

There isn't a one-size-fits-all solution to PTSD, and it isn't something that will be resolved in a short amount of time. What type of treatment you or your loved one will get is up to your therapist, but this book lists and explains some common forms of treatment for people with PTSD.
