Authors:

Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. is a Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University in San Francisco and in 2002 he was the recipient of the American Psychological Association (APA) Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology. His two dozen books include The Psychological Impact of War on Civilians and Biographies of Disease: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Daryl S. Paulson, Ph.D. is a psychologist, a Fellow of the American Academy of Traumatic Stress, and a veteran of the U.S. Marines who served in Vietnam. He has worked extensively with veterans affected by PTSD and he consults with the Department of Defense on Homeland Security issues.

Synopsis: Since 1990, U.S. Veterans' centers have treated more than 1.6 million PTSD-affected men and women, including an estimated 100,000 from the Gulf War and an untallied total from the Iraq and Afghanistan fronts. Sufferers may experience the traumatic events in flashbacks that may seem as real as when they first occurred. Using first hand accounts, the authors offer insights into the realities of PTSD and combat trauma, and how symptoms may pervade even the most mundane of daily activities and cause sufferers to experience withdrawal, depression, violence, rage, and even suicide.
