Once a person recovers from the immediate effects of trauma, there may be an invisible impression left behind in their nervous system. That’s the root of PTSD, which is a way in which the trauma comes back in unwelcome, disturbing ways. CareNote author, Geoffrey Tyrell, offers ways to help a loved one move forward when they are suffering from PTSD. Helpful sections include: “Be on the lookout for changes,” “Good relationships can happen,” “Take time to listen,” “Be honest with your feelings,” “Exercise has many benefits,” ” Therapy can be healing,” and “Take care of yourself.”
