This is an excellent book for children that explains what Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is and how it may affect the children in the family.
In this case, a young boy is so happy to have his Mom home from Afghanistan. But, why is she playing video games and ignoring him? Of course, he is too young to understand what has happened to her but....this book explains how they both are able to work together to help on her road to recovery. Various treatment options are discussed, too.
One point that the author covered was the 'Rapid Movement Desensitization Treatment' which is used by Vet Centers. This has been successful in treatment and was glad that it was mentioned in this book. I live in Vermont and this has been used by the White River Vet Center for many years...and with high success rates.
At the conclusion of this one, there are some conversation starters that can be used to get the words flowing. No one that has PTSD wants to talk about it but ....suffering silently is not the right option.
The author also lists an email at the end to contact either him or his wife. Reach out and one of them will point you in the direction of assistance. And, of course, the VA has some wonderful counselors and treatment options available.
Most highly recommended and for both the veteran as well as the children... That first step is critical in starting the healing process.
