A Practical Guide to Understanding and Connecting with Your Partner After Trauma Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can present with a number of symptoms, including anxiety, depression, flashbacks, and trouble sleeping. If your partner has PTSD, you may want to help, but find yourself at a loss. This informative and practical book aims to help increase your understanding of the signs and symptoms of PTSD, improve your communication skills with your loved one, set realistic expectations, and work to create a healthy environment for the both of you. PTSD is a manageable disability. While it isn't your responsibility to rescue your partner or act as his or her therapist, this book can help you be supportive and implement strategies for lessening the negative impact of PTSD-not just for your partner, but for your relationship, and, importantly, for yourself.
