"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.

Thank you for writing this This book came to me during a time when I really needed it personally. There are so many interesting, tragic, and sadly relatable components of this case and I just really want to thank Dr. Southwick for putting their story out there. I couldn’t put this book down, and when I did put it down I found myself thinking about it. As a person it helps me with what I am going through but also as a medical professional it will definitely help me in my interactions with patients who have experienced trauma. I read every footnote! Very good read. Read more
