Explaining PTSD is essential in treating PTSD. In this program, two experts, Dr. Frank Ochberg and Dr. Angie Panos, give new therapists, and therapists new to PTSD insightful and thoughtful suggestions about explaining the condition. Their approach includes educating patients, significant others, caregivers, and the general public. They do this without becoming either too technical or too superficial, but in a supportive, consistent, enthusiastic, and friendly manner.

Dr. Ochberg models describing PTSD to your patient and Dr. Panos discusses how to explain the causes of PTSD to a general audience.

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. He was the editor of America's first PSTD treatment text and is a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

Dr. Angie 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.

This is a nice, concise, easy to watch DVD that is simple, yet profound, in its admonishment for mental health professionals to educate PTSD patients about their disorder. The gems that come from these two, well-respected, seasoned PTSD experts, psychiatrist Frank Ochberg, M.D. and clinical psychologist Angie Panos, Ph.D., are well work keeping."

The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children(TLC) trains thousands of professionals yearly. "Explaining PTSD is Part of Treating PTSD" is indeed a rich and valuable resource for practitioners in the field of trauma. Educating victims as to"what trauma is"; what it is that they are already experiencing and may yet experience, is the beginning of healing. To simply hear that, initially, it is not necessary to go into all the horrid details of their experience in order to feel a little bit better, is of tremendous relief for victims. It immediately helps create a sense of safety so essential throughout the intervention process. "Explaining PTSD is Part of Treating PTSD," presents lessons that offer encouragement and support for those victims able to begin the journey from victim to survivor. Even the skilled clinician can learn from the lessons taught by Drs.Ochberg and Panos.
