Very well written She addresses theory and offers Blood Runs Green examples from her practice I really bought the book because of an NPR interview in which she described her family history with the trauma of the 1947 Partition in Iran Ispecially appreciated her discussion of the problem of denial in cultures that don t want to acknowledge human vulnerability to trauma I think of German post WWI and their classification of post traumatic stress as hysteria and of course similar reluctance in American culture I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book from HarperCollins This informative work of non fiction Charting an Empire explores the history nuances and treatments of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD from a medical professor and practicing psychiatrist who is anxpert in the

should be to help survivors thrive in their new normal 221 Dr Jain presents a straightforward and descriptive of the realities of PTSD as a cognitive state what is like living with it and what are the

make certain populations vulnerable to PTSD and that at thend of the book she highlights what biases may be lingering within the research that she so carefully sites This was a well written book and provided a nice introduction into the basics of PTSD including its history characteristics at risk populations and common treatments I thought it was interesting how undiagnosed and untreated PTSD can manifest in physical ailments and behavioral problems in children Unfortunately as the book notes those who need help the most are the least likely to reach out for help I did like the chapters about prevention of PTSD and ways to build resilience into our lives and children s lives in order to prevent PTSDAlthough this book contained a lot of good information and interesting stories I felt it was dry and I found myself skimming a lot The Unspeakable Mind is part memoir part family history and part overview of the current understanding of post traumatic stress disorder The author Dr Shaili Jain

People to recall and heal from trauma is like attempting archaeology in a minefield The mission is to uncover buried memories without setting off any mines Every decision a psychiatrist makes no matter how small can have serious conseuences down the line Dr Jain takes this fact into account in dealing with her patients For xample in her session with a traumatized woman named Eun Dr Jain had to be sure that Eun s husband would be supportive of her It was vital that my instincts about Jim and his connection to Eun be accurate because if I was going to High Tide at Midnight encourage Eun to fully disclose the details of her traumatic past I needed to be sure she would be treated with the care that was long overdue p 175 Dr Jain offers an insider s view into how she conducts a therapy session To preserve client privacyach case study is a composite Nevertheless you can see Dr Jain s clinical techniue in action She keeps the reader informed of her own responses and gut feelings She draws upon her Education and Equality expertise and intuition in formulating the next move Seeing through Dr Jain syes as she helps her patients to move toward wholeness and healing offers a rare and

stories are not fiction so they had no resolution no neatly tied up Deceptive Beauties ending They aren t resolved in the book because they often aren t resolved in real life In some cases Dr Jain saw a client for only a few sessions and never heard from him again She herself didn t know what happened afterwards This is the way life is Dr Jain has the honesty and humility to regard successful outcomes as conseuences of her clients own courage and growth as much as her own skill as a facilitator There is no magic pill for PTSD Even so there are many options and Dr Jain covers them The stories are poignant and haunting perhapsven so because in many cases we don t know how they Dangerous Work endAdmirably Dr Jain is sensitive not only toward her patients feelings but also to those of her reader She avoids the gory details of other people s past because she doesn t want to traumatize the reader Dr Jain relates painfulvents with a great deal of compassion and respect for privacy and individual dignity Writers of biographies and memoirs would do well to handle sensitive information the way Dr Jain does I highly recommend this book At the very least you will come away with an appreciation of Dr Jain s gripping family history as well as her tremendous Flavor and Soul expertise and competence in a scientific discipline that holds promise tond suffering for millions of people

bringing to thisI really njoyed the comprehensiveness that the author brought to the topic I very seldom felt a sense of but what aboutwhen reading this book She covers the topic of PTSD with a great deal of breadth and depth not to mention sensitivityI appreciate that she covers a variety of trauma including IPV sexual assault and natural disasters not just PTSD from combatmilitary xperience This should help a lot of readers who might struggle to find their Forgery, Replica, Fiction experiences in PTSD literatureI have an interest in the history of India so her stories about her family history during the Partition were very interesting on their own not just asxamples of traumaIn terms of how useful the information is in terms of working on managing PTSD the book offers a lot of possible
