This book is an excellent how-to manual for effectively treating PTSD with hypnotherapy. It is invaluable for countering the effects of traumatic experience for veterans and other individuals, including their family members, and society as a whole. It offers ground-breaking concepts to both new and experienced therapists who work with PTSD, and to veterans who are returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.
In addition, it's the only book available that specifically gives veterans tools to motivate themselves using effective hypnotic treatment of PTSD; and, in the same vein, it is uniquely geared toward educating friends and family members. With the holistic perspective, this revolutionary work provides readers with a greater awareness of the combat veteran's experience, particularly in relation to "purpose" and "meaning,"... all within a new paradigm for our times-that which is known as, "the transpersonal approach."
