This book is so meaningful to me, in fact, that I'm currently exploring a way to serve couples who have lost a uniformed responder or military officer with my own work born of our discovery that couples can emerge stronger from traumatic loss.
It will be a go-to reference as we continue our healing journey together.
Once I got a bit into it I started getting into the really helpful stuff for my situation. They have short exercises that they get you to work on throughout with you and your partner to start the converersations you need to have in order to heal. It's just super well done. I am HIGHLY recommending it to everyone I know with trauma in their past. Those who are just starting their healing journeys and those like me who are well into it. I am also putting up a review and spreading the news on various book review websites. It was one of my more expensive trauma books, but it's proving very helpful and extremely well written. It addresses all the main things you're going to be struggling with if you are recovering from trauma and working on yourself AND your intimate relationships with partners.
I did find some of the examples of feelings and symptoms that can come up triggering. But the stories they had in the book, even those close to my traumas I was fine with. I guess that's just part of the fun of PTSD. You are fine with some stuff until you're not and other stuff you just aren't good with period.
So I do recommend having someone of support near by as you read and work through the exercises (most are setup so you do them together), because you may need someone to step in and re-ground you and calm your anxiety and such down.
