The included case studies illustrate multiply diagnoses that require treatment in order to fully asssist trama victims. As a combat veteran himself, he provides greater insight to the issues experienced. Caase sstudies are included.
The book invites both therapists and victims of trauma to greater understand the depth and complexities of trauma.
