Nearly 8 percent of Americans may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Many are combat veterans or first responders. However, anyone who experiences a traumatic event that caused or threatened serious physical harm, intense fear, helplessness, or horror is at risk. This book examines how PTSD affects individuals and families and empowers youth to cope with the PTSD of a parent. Helping readers recognize the phenomenon, it explores root causes and also provides tools for mitigating the sometimes considerable stress of having a parent with PTSD, including personal and family therapy.
