Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Although Witkin's book relates to recovery from many types of disasters (natural catastrophes, accidents, death of a loved one), the events of September 11 provided the impetus for her latest title. The director of the Stress Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, Witkin (The Male Stress Syndrome) has written previous books about stress (each focused more specifically on men, women, or children) and several self-help books for women. The first ten chapters of her latest offering take the reader chronologically through disaster recovery from the first day through the first anniversary. Each chapter describes typical reactions at that stage, offers "emotional CPR" to help the reader cope, and then offers StressRelief prescriptions for that stage. Following chapters on helping children and helping others cope with disasters, Witkin offers sources for additional help (foundations, web sites, etc.). Aimed at lay readers with little background in psychology, Witkin's advice is solid, basic, and clearly written. Though her book does not break new ground, it will be useful for libraries seeking additional materials on stress management. Witkin's frequent appearances as a television guest and host may also attract readers. Recommended for public libraries. Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD
