As more veterans return from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, more are needing care for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and combat-related traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
While there are several treatment and recovery options, outlets for support, and other resources, understanding and gaining access to them is often difficult or confusing.
This book offers guidance for returning veterans, ranging from treatment options to diagnostic criteria, prevention, rehabilitation, and support. This is a comprehensive and essential guide for veterans themselves, their families, and all who work with veterans struggling with PTSD and TBI.
