Overview

Traumatized takes the reader into the mind

and soul of Connecticut State Trooper John

Patterson, who, within the first six years of his career,

shot and killed two armed felons in the line of duty.

It is the story of his decline into major depression

and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, leading to

nightmare filled nights, addiction and family

discord. With treatment, John began a long, slow

journey out of the darkness and into the light. Traumatized is a courageous

story, pushing against the unwritten code in law enforcement to be a

man, tough it out, no feelings allowed.

The story of John's journey is critical to understanding the psychological

damage police officers, fire-fighters, soldiers, and others on the frontlines

continue to endure in our name. Traumatized captures the impasse

faced by individuals who face life and death situations on a daily basis,

yet are not fully supported in dealing with the tremendous emotional

toll.
