From the Publisher

Beckner, Victoria Lemle & John B. Arden. Conquering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2008. c.304p. index. ISBN 978-1-59233-309-7. pap. $16.99. PSYCH

Verdict: An accessible investigation of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this book examines the disorder in a logical, sequential, and thoroughly captivating way. Designed for the layperson and professional, it is highly recommended for all libraries.
Background: Beckner and Arden, both of whom have extensive clinical and academic research experience, profile six diverse individuals (a firefighter and survivors of mugging, war, childhood abuse, an automobile accident, and Hurricane Katrina) who struggle with PTSD, identifying their triggers and a clear path to recovery. The authors present a treatment modality focused on cognitive behavioral techniques, evidence-based relationship strategies and techniques to work through traumatic memory, and a holistic approach that provides support on each step of the journey to growth.—Melody Ballard, Pima Cty.
