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.

Roberto Guerrero Prompts People to Eliminate Mentally Crippling Aspects of Their Lives in New Book

coverGuerreo

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Mentally Crippled” by Roberto Guerrero.

People can take charge of their own lives and use their natural talents – and brains – to improve themselves and the world. That’s the assertion championed in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

 It’s much easier to blame circumstances and others for what happens than to look internally to find the answers to problems. The author of this new book urges people to take a look at their own lives and vow to use the power of their mind to make changes – no matter how small – that will benefit them and the people in their lives.  Instead of mentally crippling themselves, letting others tell them how to think or letting stress overtake their emotions, they need to take responsibility to achieve their dreams and have a satisfying life.

 “Mentally Crippled” urges readers to challenge themselves like never before, even if it means leaving behind friends who won’t change. Much of his advice is common sense, including the exhortation to combine common sense smarts with book smarts. Come to work on time and be prepared to do the job. Improve your mind by reading books and share that knowledge. Keep your word and your commitments. Be a good friend. “Dare to jump out of your skin and treat others kindly and respectfully,” the author writes. “I dare you to become a giver instead of a taker. I dare you to compliment others and be the first one to smile. … Once you have a different outlook toward life, the universe will return the favor.”

Author Roberto Guerrero was born in the Dominican Republic, the youngest of 10 children. His mother was from St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. He came to the United States in 1969 and graduated from Martin L. King Jr. High School in New York City. Guerrero has worked for the Veterans Administration, including the VA hospital in Gainesville, Fla., since retiring after 22 years of service in the Army. He and his wife, Pauline, married for more than 34 years, have three sons and six grandchildren.
