A clinical psychologist gives straightforward advice on how to understand emotional reactions to trauma and loss. The author's unappealing vocal style hinders the accessibility of this guide though he scores points for his sincerity and palpable interest in helping. The array of trauma symptoms he's assembled will ring true with those who have been knocked off their feet by any kind of tragedy. In colloquial language--and speaking to the heart as well as the mind--he catalogs multiple emotional and behavioral reactions and then discusses how to manage them and how to move on in a self-affirming way. While the program isn't a substitute for professional help, it's a good starting point for getting a grip in the middle of a bad time. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
