My PTSD Relationship website is associated with my self-help or how-to book, The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Relationship: How to Support Your Partner and Keep Your Relationship Healthy. While some of the site is dedicated to such things as endorsements and reviews of the book, I have also posted articles I’ve written about dealing with the “PTSD Relationship,” links to other sites that couples impacted by PTSD may well find helpful, and I provide some examples of books that couples may want to read which, while not necessarily specific to PTSD, could still provide guidance in dealing with others issues that can easily spring up in a relationship impacted by PTSD. Examples of such things would be communication problems, anger management issues, and additions. Then again, a partner of a warrior wounded by PTSD may want to read about the impact of war on people. Thus, I recommend books that tackle that topic, too.
If you’re a psychotherapist working with couples impacted by PTSD, you may want to develop a psychoeducational support group which will help these couples learn new skills to improve their ability to cope with whatever they face in healthy ways. If so, I have written and posted a manual which describes how to use The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Relationship as the foundation for an approximate twelve-session psychoeducational course. Because the book includes content, case studies, and exercises, it can easily be used for this purpose. There is no need to struggle to develop your own lesson plans. I also suggest ways to get your group rolling quickly, as well as how to sustain it. By the way, I have heard from facilitators of such groups in not only the United States, but also Canada, Great Britain, and Australia.
