Beyond Trauma
Conversations on traumatic incident reduction
Edited by Victor R. Volkman

       As a mental health provider in my day job, Beyond Trauma shows that there is an effective way of helping individuals with such diagnoses as: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or severe panic or anxiety disorders and makes this reader want to learn more about helping these individuals through Traumatic Incident Reduction. Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is introduced in a simplistic way for both mental health professionals and people who suffer from PTSD or other anxiety disorders.

       Throughout Beyond Trauma, TIR is demonstrated in conversational pieces from different professionals. Each conversational piece shows the reader specific cases where TIR was used, usually after several other types of therapy were used, and shows how TIR was effective in helping that particular client. Beyond Trauma also has actual client experiences that show that TIR was effective.

      Beyond Trauma should be a must for any clinician that deals with individuals that have PTSD or anxiety disorder.
