Finally, the cries and needs of the loved ones have been addressed in this comprehensive, practical book, now newly updated in its second edition!
Love Our Vets answers more than 60 heartfelt questions, providing down-to-earth wisdom and much-needed tips for taking care of yourself. Sharing as a counselor and from her personal experience of living with a 100% disabled veteran with PTSD, Welby O’Brien gives hope, encouragement, and practical help for families and loved ones who are caught in the wake of the trauma. This book addresses a broad spectrum of issues and concerns and offers realistic wisdom from a wide variety of individuals who share from real hearts and lives.
Now newly revised and updated with additional material, the second edition of Love Our Vets continues to be enthusiastically welcomed by VA and other counselors. This is not just another book about PTSD; rather, it is a tremendous resource for families and loved ones who struggle heroically along with their vets to face the day-to-day challenges.
I think this book is such a valuable resource for anyone who has ever experienced PTSD for someone who works with those in the military, for a spouse who is serving in the military or a family member who is serving. This book is fantastic! It is practical and provides an immense about of support for those who experience such awful trauma. I love how it answers questions that people may be afraid to ask, while addressing a variety of issues and providing solid information. Overall, I think this book is a tremendous resource. As a social worker, I value this book so much! I give this book 5/5 stars because of the wealth of information and the way it addresses a specific issue in a unique way. Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy. I did not receive monitory compensation for my review.
