Dog Ear Publishing releases “JFK: 4 Out of 3” by Stephen Ladds.

A young psychiatrist challenges a patient known only as Sherlock Holmes to solve the mystery of the assassination of President Kennedy in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. His theories provide new insights into this modern-day mystery.

A dark and rainy night brings a wheelchair-bound man who refuses to speak to authorities to the Baker Clinic, a former orphanage that now serves those with mental impairments. In this new book, the young psychiatrist caring for the patient, known only as Sherlock Holmes, challenges him to resolve the mysteries of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Was the assassination the result of a conspiracy or the work of a single gunman? Set in 1989, this blend of fact and fiction includes humor and even romance as Holmes provides new deductions related to the historic event that changed a nation.

“JFK: 4 Out of 3” questions the Warren Commission’s report, which concluded Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman, firing three shots: one hit the president’s head, another missed and the third struck both the president and Gov. Connally – a hotly debated conclusion. Abraham Zapruder, a bystander, captured the event with his 8mm home movie camera, and it’s this film and other material that Holmes studies as he attempts to determine what really happened that fateful day. As Holmes begins to deduce new aspects of the assassination, the young psychiatrist grows closer to him and to his bewitching secretary. Will the greatest detective of the 19th century be able to solve the greatest mystery of the 20th century or is he nothing more than another mental patient?

Author Stephen Ladds, who was 6 at the time of the assassination Nov. 22, 1963, became interested in the assassination of John F. Kennedy in high school when a friend showed him a book by Josiah Thompson, “Six Seconds in Dallas,” offering theories on multiple gunmen. Years later, after reading a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about his amazing detective Sherlock Holmes and coincidentally viewing a documentary by Nigel Turner, “The Men Who Killed Kennedy,” Ladds writes that he decided to explore what might happen if Sherlock Holmes turned his brilliant mind to the case. This book, more than two decades in the making, is the result.

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.
