Description

The Proven, Scientific Approach to Conquering PTSD and Defeating the Disorder

We are facing a hidden and growing epidemic. More than a million veterans and everyday citizens have been affected with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of a traumatic event or personal experience. And until now, there has been little understanding of how the disorder truly takes hold and how to reverse its destruction.

Finally, a breakthrough approach has been discovered. Previously PTSD was treated as a psychiatric disorder only, but new scientific research shows that biological factors play just as an important of a role, specifically brain and soft-tissue damage underlying the root causes of the disorder. The PTSD Breakthrough is the first book to describe the true causes of PTSD and provide an effective program for overcoming the disorder.

There is hope.

Through the research conducted by Dr. Lawlis and his colleagues, for the first time those who suffer from PTSD, as well as their families and loved ones, will discover that this disorder can be treated and healed, and that our veterans and all who suffer from PTSD can regain true peace in their lives.

Dr. Frank Lawlis is a renowned psychologist, researcher, and counselor with more than thirtyfive years’ experience and is a fellow of the American Psychological Association.

Praise for The PTSD Breakthrough
“Dr. Lawlis has done it again! His latest book offers new hope for PTSD sufferers and their families with approaches that can be used at home where the real problems occur and persist. There is a great deal of insight, strategy, and inspiration for anyone who is dealing with these horrific challenges toward the satisfied life they deserve. A must read for every member of a family touched by PTSD.”
—Dr. Phil McGraw

“Dr. Frank Lawlis, one of the most gifted and prolific contributors in modern psychology, delivers in The PTSD Breakthrough a highly readable, scientifically grounded, balanced approach to PTSD, zeroing in on the damaging effects of trauma to the brain, psyche, and spirit. By sensitively clarifying various manifestations of PTSD, Dr. Lawlis strengthens those who suffer from PTSD through practical interventions that alleviate the agonizing symptoms and rejuvenate the person. His case discussions are surpassed only by the spot-on information and substantive exercises.”
