Join me for a Virtual Chat with the Dean of Student Affairs at Walden University this Monday evening at 7pm!
I am excited to talk about Trauma and PTSD during a Virtual Chat with the Dean of Student Affairs at Walden University. Join us Monday, October 14th, 2019 at 7pm. We will be discussing Trauma and PTSD.
Mental illness happens when we lose our presence in the present. Mental illness is something that is real, and it is something we do not talk about enough in our communities, families, and relationships. Let’s have a voice and recognize when we need to seek out treatment.
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, is the first book of the Dr. Doobie series. It’s a beautifully illustrated children’s book that touches on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms and explains why it can affect military personnel, war veterans, and their families.
PTSD is an individual condition that has interpersonal effects. It explains triggers, avoidance behaviors, and safety behaviors unique to military personnel and war veterans and how to live with an individual affected by PTSD. Now I Lay Me Down to sleep is a valuable age-appropriate resource that can encourage open and honest communication to help families deal with mental illness, and remove the stigma of seeking help through therapy.
