    PTSD and Highly Sensitive People

    in Psychology

    This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele's original show, "Your Life After Trauma."

    How we perceive trauma – and the world – impacts our perception of events and even ourselves. Studies suggest that highly sensitive persons are more prone to PTSD due to the delicate nature of their perceptions. Understanding this can help both survivors and their caregivers navigate post-trauma recovery.

    Ane Axford, MS, LMFT, mental health and relationship therapist talks about ‘Highly Sensitive Persons’ from a clinical perspective.

    To Miguel Reece Returning Vets' Post-Traumatic Sleep Disorders Are the New PTSD

    in Self Help

    “Sleep deprivation during military deployment is archaic, harmful and institutionally unavoidable. It may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Why’s it taking so long for military brass to take action?” – Peter S. Green, journalist

    Award-winning journalist Peter S. Green investigated sleep deprivation during military deployment and how “circadian scarring” among our troops may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Green asks, “Why is it taking so long for military brass to take action?”

    During today’s show our guest, Miguel Reece, Retired US Air Force Major and former VA civil servant, will address this and other related issues that are adversely affecting our servicemen and servicewomen while on and returning from deployment.

    A case study: U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield

    Through the long summer of 2008, U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield led a fire team at a dust-choked combat operations post in the craggy terrain of Kunar province in northeastern Afghanistan. His platoon was five men short of its full 32-person complement, and would catch incoming fire several times a day from Taliban insurgents in the surrounding hills.

    Full-day patrols sent Bedingfield and his squad 3,000 feet or more up into the mountains, and another 3,000 feet back down to their camp. At night, they stood watch to ward off insurgents. Often, they’d double-staff the watchtowers to ensure no one fell asleep. “If one guy dozed, the other’s job was to slap him around to wake him up,” Bedingfield said.

    PTSD Recovery: Becoming More Functional Today

    in Psychology

    This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele's original show, "Your Life After Trauma."

    Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can rob a person of the very will to live and prevent a trauma survivor from moving on to creating a meaningful future. PTSD symptoms including flashbacks, avoidance, desensitization, hyper-arousal, and insomnia interfere on a daily basis with a trauma survivor’s ability to function; they are unable to hold down a job, have healthy relationships, and/or demonstrate appropriate self-care.

    The main goal of every survivor is to overcome symptoms of PTSD. For some that means learning how to manage symptoms; for others that means eliminating them completely.

    No matter the final quest, every survivor wants to know how to become more functional in daily life. Discovering tools for this makes it easier to cope which, in addition to increased functionality, develops more courage, strength and focus for the work of recovery, too.

    In this episode of ‘Your Life After Trauma’ we had two guests talking about PTSD Recovery: What You Can Do To Become Functional TODAY. Tonight, our guest, Rev. Dr. Chrys Parker, shares her unique professional perspective.

    Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD

    in Health

    When Christal Presley's father was eighteen, he was drafted to Vietnam. Like many men of that era who returned her childhood locked in his room, gravitating between the deepest depression and unspeakable rage, unable to participate in holidays or birthdays. At a very young age, Christal learned to walk on eggshells, doing anything and everything not to provoke him, but this dance caused her to  become a profoundly disturbed little girl. She acted out at school, engaged in self-mutilation, and couldn't make friends. At the age of eighteen, Christal left home and didn't look back. She barely spoke to her father for the next thirteen years.To any outsider, Christal appeared to be doing well: she earned a BA and a master's, got married, and traveled to India. But despite all these accomplishments, Christal still hadn't faced her biggest challenge—her relationship with her father. In 2009, something changed. Christal decided it was time to begin the healing process, and she extended an olive branch. She came up with what she called "The Thirty Day Project," a month's worth of conversations during which she would finally ask her father difficult questions about Vietnam. Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD (HCI) is a gritty yet heartwarming story of those thirty days of a daughter and father reconnecting in a way that will inspire us all to seek the truth, even from life's most difficult relationships. This beautifully realized memoir shares how one woman and her father discovered profound lessons about their own strength and will to survive, shedding an inspiring light on generational PTSD. Just released, it is already number one on Amazon’s list of best-sellers.
