More About the Author

Yep, 2012 is my best year of publishing since 1989 when I published both Stress in Families (Routledge) and Helping Traumatized Families (Jossey-Bass). In 2012 I published the second edition of Helping Traumatized Families with co-author Lauren Kiser, a professor at the University of Maryland's Medical School. But the first book published in 2012 was The Encyclopedia of Trauma: An Interdisciplinary Guide (Sage). The third book published in 2012 is Treating Traumatic Stress Injuries in Military Personnel: An EMDR Practitioner's Guide (Routledge Psychosocial Stress Series). And in mid-2013 will be the book that took the most time: First Do No SELF Harm: Understanding and Promoting Physician Stress Resilience (Oxford University Press).

My books have focused on helping others. In my first book, Stress Disorders among Vietnam Veterans (1978), gave no indication that I was a vet myself; there was no self disclosure. In recent years, particularly Mapping Trauma and its Wake (2005, Routledge), I describe my decision to enter the Marine Corps rather than going to William and Mary college after graduation.

I would love to hear what you think of my books. My phone number at Tulane University is 504-862-3473 but the best way to communicate with me is via email which is figley@tulane.edu.
Warm regards,
Charles

I was looking for concrete suggestions and concepts to present that could shed more in-depth light on the subject for a group I lead. I spent some time looking through the chapters, but only found some marginal help (not much new) on comments about humor helping the immune system. It would have helped if the writer had acknowledged the slow steady build up of compassion fatigue for care givers that may occur, and offered more practical ways to address this reality.
