The
Soldier’s Guide to PTSD

A
Guide to Reclaiming Your Life

by
Virginia Cruse

Genre:
Nonfiction, Self-Help, Military

Finally,
a book that plainly explains Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Moral
Injury, and how Service Members can reclaim their lives step-by-step

As
a therapist, Virginia Cruse was becoming frustrated with the rumors
her clients heard about PTSD that kept them from getting better. Why
did so many of them believe that PTSD had no cure? That they couldn’t
have PTSD because they were not in direct combat? That they didn’t
“deserve” to have PTSD, or didn’t “deserve” to get better?
The answer hit a nerve with Cruse: no one had taken the time to
explain PTSD to Service Members in a way that made sense. Soldiers
were losing their resiliency and optimism in a culture that
propagated misinformation and went against the facts about PTSD,
facts that are necessary to know in order to recover good mental
health and salvage important relationships.

Told
in the voice of a Soldier-turned-therapist who struggled through her
own debilitating PTSD, The Soldier’s Guide does not waste time
cutting through the bull and getting down to brass tacks. It is a
call to arms, offering facts, empathy, and direction, while urging
Service Members to get the help they need, helping family members to
understand the battlefield, and connecting civilians with a Warrior
culture.
