Description: Nightmares, flashbacks, anger, concentration problems, emotional detachment, avoidance of people and places... These are some of the signs of PTSD. As many as one in three cops may suffer from PTSD, a condition that could lead to depression, suicidal thorughts, addictions, eating disorders, as well as job and family conflict. CopShock prepares police officers for the aftermath of horrific trauma, helps families understand PTSD's effect on their loved ones, tells true stories of officers-men and women-with PTSD, and offers over 200 support sources. In the second edition of this much praised book on police trauma survival, almost 50 percent of CopShock has been expanded, revised or updated with new material, including self-tests for PTSD, Panic Disorder, and Depression. Law enforcement officers throughout the United States, Canada and 8 other countries have used this book in their peer support programs, police academies, and post-trauma units. Therapists recommend it to their patients, and many law enforcement college programs include it in their curricula. Since the publication of CopShock's first edition in 1999, the book has been reviewed and praised around the world. The A&E Television Network produced a documentary based on CopShock that is shown today in police academies, colleges, and peer support groups. In this new second edition, and in the aftermath of 9/11, the war on terror, and the consequences from natural disasters like hurricane Katrina, CopShock will help many more police officers, firefighters, first responders, and war veterans cope with the damaging effects of PTSD.
