In recent months, the U.S. has witnessed a record number of school and other mass-shootings, political violence, the increased recognition of rampant sexual harassment in the workplace, high-profile suicides, and more. These events are traumatic and potentially impact upon both those who are directly and indirectly involved. In this way, many of us are feeling a new collective grief.
In 2016, I developed my first PTSD Resource Packet as an invaluable and healing resource for anyone navigating the tough terrain of trauma. In it I write about what PTSD is and how it relates to, and impacts upon, gender, relationships, chronic pain, heart health, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). As well as the depth and breadth of PTSD suffering and the prospect of effective treatment and the possibility of healing.
I have been revising and updating the resource annually, and the 2018 edition
takes into account just how difficult this year has been in particular. This year, you will find an expanded e-book that discusses Complex PTSD, trauma in the context of mass shootings, the latest research on biofeedback as a possible treatment modality, a real-life story of post-traumatic growth, and more.
