Lots of "charming eccentricities"

Traumatic Incident Reduction and It's Uses
Traumatic Incident Reduction
Research and Results, 2nd Edition
From the Explorations in Metapsychology Series
Edited by: Victor R. Volkman
Publisher: Loving Healing Press
ISBN: 978-1-932690-50-7

Throughout the late 1980s and into the 1990s, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) became synonymous with the on-going anxiety and stress that often affected Vietnam War Veterans. Of course, since that time we have learned that PTSD is not just a problem for war veterans. PTSD can affect anyone of any age who has suffered from a traumatic injury, situation or negative experience. Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) therapy has been developed and proven to be very successful in treating PTSD and similar stress and anxiety manifestations.

This outstanding publication offers an indepth review of the highly structured person-oriented theory of TIR to successfully treat a wide range of emotional, mental and physical issues. By reading this book, you will learn how TIR came about and it's basis in the basic tenents of psychology. The book offers numerous case studies, treatment outcome studies, and use of TIR with crime victims and incarcerated persons. Additionally, you will learn in detail about practioner and client methodology, comparison of TIR to other treatment modalities, client perceptions of TIR and review an extensively detailed FAQ for TIR.

I would highly recommend this collection of studies, papers and reviews to anyone (laypersons and professionals) interested in learning more about TRI. The usefulness of this book reaches far beyond the needs of the beginning student. The thoroughness of these studies will benefit both the beginner and advanced student or practioner in the helping fields. Highly recommended addition to the permanent reference library of anyone who works with people who have suffered traumatic incidents.
