Friends, relatives, and caretakers of trauma survivors often struggle to understand the wrenching depth and complexity of PTSD, even as the fallout from this medical disorder pervades their lives. It can be confusing and frustrating, even heartbreaking, to see those close to us suddenly become unrecognizable, well past what we think is the “normal recovery period” after a tragic or horrific event.

This film, featuring Dr. Frank Ochberg and Dr. Angelea Panos, offers family and community members clear, useful information about the nature and symptoms of PTSD, as well as concrete advice about how they can assist their loved ones in the recovery process. Designed for those individuals whose intimate circles have been marked by this disorder, this valuable DVD also discusses PTSD’s effect upon families and other relationships, currently available treatment methods, and ways for caregivers to cope with their unique psychological fatigue.

This DVD is ideal for those close to someone who suffers PTSD, as well as for community, volunteer, and caregiver training.
