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 Children’s Book Details Dangers of Thumb Sucking

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Why the Long Face? A Story About Thumb Sucking” by Dr. Todd Morgan.

A board-certified expert with his own dental practice describes the all-too-real consequences of thumb-sucking on a child’s health and development in this new picture book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although thumb sucking can be a soothing activity for babies and young children, its effects are anything but soothing to the body. In fact, thumb sucking can affect craniofacial growth and development of airways, hindering functions such as breathing, speaking and swallowing. This new book by a dentist details the effects of thumb sucking on growing children to help parents recognize early symptoms so they can avoid problems with their child’s health.

“Why the Long Face? A Story About Thumb Sucking” stars Gracie, a smart girl who knows a lot of things but not the problems that sucking a thumb can create. Gracie isn’t worried that her constant thumb sucking makes her smile crooked or might make her face long. After all, her pony Alice has a long face and looks beautiful. When she visits her dentist, Dr. Morgan, Gracie and her parents find out how much damage a thumb can create, including making it harder to breathe at night. A fateful dream changes Gracie’s mind about the pleasure of sucking her thumb. Colorful watercolor illustrations by Manny Aguiler and a list of helpful organizations and websites round out this resource for any parent with a thumb-sucking child.

Author Todd Morgan, an internationally recognized expert in dental sleep medicine, has a practice in Encinitas, Calif. He graduated from the Washington University School of Dental Medicine in St. Louis in 1985. Morgan is board certified in dentistry and dental sleep medicine and has completed clinic research studies and published scientific papers on treating snoring, sleep apnea and headaches with dental devices. He and his wife, Barbi, have four children.
