Full Description:   

This videotape is valuable for those who care about the PTSD sufferer in their life. It explains what PTSD is, why it is important to learn about this medical disorder, what you can do to help, ways to treat it, how to deal with the caregiver burden and how PTSD affects the family and other relationships.

Survivors of trauma often have difficulty believing that they will ever recover. This film provides a realistic message of hope and teaches family members and community how they can assist in the recovery process.

The program features Dr. Frank Ochberg and Dr. Angelea Panos.

Frank Ochberg is a psychiatrist and the former Associate Director of the National Institute of Mental Health and a member of the team that wrote the medical definition for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Dr. Angelea Panos holds a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a licensed clinical social worker. She has more than twenty years experience in traumatic stress treatment, dealing with war refugees, domestic violence, victims of rape, and child abuse.

"Living With PTSD" is the first video of its kind in that it speaks directly to the significant others of victims of trauma. This kind of family education validates the victim and normalizes them as well. It reframes for the family member so the behaviors that are troubling the client are not framed into the relationship instead of the traumatic event. With this kind of education, the family member can come away realizing that "it's not about me; it's about the PTSD." I think this and the Explaining PTSD Is Part of Treating PTSD are a "must see" for organizations as well as for therapists and their families and friends."

If you have ever loved someone who is a survivor of trauma then "Living With PTSD" is a must. It is an important guide in helping friends, lovers, and family members navigate through the posttraumatic world allowing them to become part of the solution rather than the problem. I also wholeheartedly recommend "Living With PTSD" to professionals, reminding them that PTSD effects the entire [family] system not just the survivor.
