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.

Student Works on His Monstrous Temper at School in New Children’s Book by Heather Arabadjis

coverArabadjis

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Monster Mas” by Heather Arabadjis.

A new student receives tips to keep his temper from boiling over at school in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Right from the beginning, Monster Mas suspects he’s not going to have a good day. First, his mother pushes him out the door mid-sentence, and when he arrives at his new school, two boys cut in front of him in line and laugh at him. Under trying circumstances, it can be hard to keep your cool, as this new children’s book shares, especially when you have a bad temper.

“Monster Mas” features a youngster with bug-infested hair who starts to steam and run around like a locomotive when he gets angry, roaring with frustration. In the classroom, he tries to impress a girl but gets his times tables mixed up, prompting a temper tantrum. A squeezy toy from his teacher helps calm him. His frustrations continue in the cafeteria, during music and back at his classroom. When his face starts turning rainbow colors, a kind classmate reminds him about what’s important. After running through all of his calming techniques, Monster Mas feels himself transformed – literally.

Heather Arabadjis offers a gentle lesson in coping and being kind in this charming story, and the cartoon illustrations by Pink Elephink bring the characters to life. The book provides adults and children with a way to discuss real-life situations while reading aloud together.

Author Heather Arabadjis has taught for the New York City Department of Education for 11 years. She now teaches children with physical or mental disabilities in their homes but has taught all grade levels, including spending eight years in a classroom in the South Bronx.
