Psychiatrist Helps Veterans Tap Into New Treatments for PTSD; David Fohrman Releases New Book

coverFohrman

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Traumatic Stress Recovery: Helping Those Traumatized by Selfless Service” by David Fohrman.

An expert in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder shares information in layman’s terms about the disorder – and potential treatments — in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although soldiers train and prepare for every mission to ensure their greatest chance for survival, there is no all-encompassing method to prepare for their minds for the effects of trauma. This new book, based on years of clinic and basic research, offers a roadmap to recovery for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and their helpers. The author, Dr. David Fohrman, created the stress resiliency program while serving as chief of mental health in the 1st Armored Division.

“Traumatic Stress Recovery: Helping Those Traumatized by Selfless Service” is divided into three sections covering PTSD, a debilitating disorder that can affect veterans and their families for years – and even decades – after they’ve left the service. The first section gives readers essential information about the psychological and biological causes of PTSD, as well as its connection to suicide. The second section describes a six-step, competency-based program veterans can use to decrease the impact of PTSD-type problems. The third section focuses on what communities can do to help veterans and others at risk of developing PTSD, including challenging assumptions on what it means to have the disorder, what it means to be “cured” and what it means to be “resilient.”

This valuable resource offers insights into PTSD and debunks popular myths, such as only weak-minded people can develop the disorder. In fact, the opposite is true. Strong, compassionate people who perform to the best of their abilities develop the disorder following a traumatic event precisely because they care so passionately about their own lives and that of their fellow soldiers. All hope is not lost for those who suffer from PTSD if they have a plan and help from professionals, family and friends. As the author writes, “even veterans with chronic PTSD symptoms can learn essential skills to help them recover their compassion for – and their capacity for trust and closeness with – themselves and others.” This book is just an overview of the types of exercises veterans can use to decrease both the severity and intensity of PTSD-type symptoms. A companion book, “Traumatic Stress Recovery: Workbook,” available through www.tsrexperts.com offers additional practical exercises.

Dr. David Fohrman, founder of Traumatic Stress Recovery, has more than 12 years of experience teaching resiliency techniques to military and civilian settings. The board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist has received numerous awards, including the Kosovo Campaign Ribbon, Alpha Omega Alpha and America’s Top Psychiatrists in 2006. He helped thousands ofactive duty, National Guard, veterans, and family members with his program since 2008.

New Nonfiction Release Offer’s Parent’s View of Life on the Autistic Spectrum; Book by Sarah F. Montz

coverMontz

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Our Wild Card” by Sarah F. Montz.

This new nonfiction release published by Dog Ear Publishing tells of the impact an Autism diagnosis had on an otherwise average family. Author Sarah Montz provides an unblinking look at the ups and downs of life with a child diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified at the age of 3.

Sarah Montz knew that her middle son, Travis, was different from his older brother, but she had no idea how much her life would change when he was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Pervasive Developmental Disorder- Not Otherwise Specified. With this diagnosis, the family set off on their journey through physical, behavioral, occupational and speech therapies. Their beloved child was labeled and judged by people unfamiliar with the diagnosis, and Sarah found herself increasingly overwhelmed as she tried to manage her three sons and the myriad of appointments required to keep Travis on track.

With love and support from her family, Sarah finally came to terms with the diagnosis and the ups and downs that came with it. She shares the joy that Travis’s laughter brings to the household, and the terror and anxiety when his disorder leads him to sneak out of the house, wandering the neighborhood unbeknownst to her. With tremendous hard work and determination, Travis has come further than his therapists ever thought he could.

Our Wild Cardis an inspirational portrait of the effects an Autistic child has on a family, positive and negative. Author Sarah Montz’s anecdotes will make readers laugh and cry in turn, and potentially lead to a new understanding of this baffling disorder. Montz attended Park University and received a bachelor’s degree in business management. She now lives outside of Dayton, Ohio, with her family. This is her first book.
