Detailed Description

 
By Cynthia Orange
 
In the United States, about 60 percent of men and 50 percent of women experience, witness, or are affected by a traumatic event in their lifetimes. Many of them (8 percent of men and 20 percent of women) may develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - a life-altering anxiety disorder.
 
Once connected mainly with veterans of war, PTSD is now being diagnosed in many situations that cause extreme trauma such as rape, physical attacks or abuse, accidents, terrorist incidents, or natural disasters. The millions of family members of those who have PTSD also suffer, not knowing how to help their loved one recover from the pain.
 
Shock Waves is a practical, user-friendly guide for those who love someone suffering from this often debilitating anxiety disorder, whether that person is a survivor of war or of another harrowing situation or event.
 
Through her own experience, extensive research, advice from mental health professionals, and interviews with those working through PTSD and their families, Cynthia Orange shows readers how to:
  • identify what PTSD symptoms look like in real life
  • respond to substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders
  • manage their reactions to a loved one's violence and rage
  • find effective professional help
  • prevent their children from experiencing secondary trauma
Each section of the book includes questions and exercises to help readers incorporate the book's lessons into their daily lives and interactions with their traumatized loved ones.
