Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Handbook for Survivors Absolutely inspirational. I have purchased several books that relate to the effects and recovery of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) since marrying my survivor husband - but none have been as insightful as Aphrodite's "Trust After Trauma." I can not express the enlightment that I received regarding my husband, his disorder and our relationship. I am a complusive "high-liter" for future reference purposes - in the end there were very few sentences within this book not high-lited. Countless times I found myself nodding, smiling and even on the verge of tears as I recoginized my husband within many of the pages. This will be my "PTSD bible" for years to come. A must for any survivor and their family.
