Description


"Prognosis: Fair, A Trauma Case Study for Clinicians" is a hybrid memoir-academic text about trauma. This book serves as a learning tool for those who care for traumatized people. The underlying message is that psychology and neurology are two sides of one coin, the brain. People who have suffered traumatic brain injury, whether via physical injury or psychological trauma, display similar neuropsychological syndromes. Dr. Southwick is a family physician. "Prognosis: Fair" is their personal story crafted as a case study, prefaced, and interfaced with academic information about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By interweaving research, non-graphic narrative, journal entries, a music playlist, and more, the book provides novel insights into traumatic memory integration. The appendices are trauma-informed learning and clinical tools designed for clinicians to use with their clients.
