Suitabilty for PTSD as a result of murder bereavement
on 2 October 2000
This book is packed with info a lot of which is very helpful. The author uses lots of examples of different traumas which resulted in PTSD. However, has not used having a loved one murdered as an example, although a very high proportion of those who have had a loved one murdered have PTSD. Some of her ideas are bit harder to apply to those who have had a loved one murdered because she does not apply them to murder bereavement. "Unspeakable truths and Happy Endings" is a PTSD book which deals allot with murder bereavement and may be a more suitable alternative.
Also this is a workbook and to do it requires lots of hard work (at your own pace). Not everyone may be ready for this or have the support to do it but it may point you in the right direction and all the information is very helpful. She also uses a cognitive-behavioural approach with although common leaves you with your feelings.
