Have You Seen Someone Blown Away?

Written for teens who have been traumatized by school shootings, drive-by shooting, or other forms of violence. It is a simple, clear explanation of the symptoms of PTSD as a normal response to trauma and how to recover. Space is provided on the back to stamp an agency's name, address, and phone number.

Children are by nature valuable, vulnerable, imperfect, needy and self-centered. If someone in the family is having a bad time with PTSD, kids tend to think it is their fault. Sometimes the parents agree, but nothing your kids do or don’t do will heal a parent’s PTSD. That is the parent’s responsibility.

I wrote these books to explain PTSD to kids. One vet told me that the book gives such a simple explanation, he could see he had it too.
