Today I heard a wonderful interview on NPR’s Fresh Air giving insight to PTSD and current treatments. They interview David Morris about his book “The Evil Hours” and experiences it is based on. He was a journalist embedded with troops in Iraq, and almost died when his Humvee ran over a roadside bomb. His book is about the history and science of PTSD. They discuss his experiences, treatments, and his book, mostly focusing on PTSD in veterans, but also discuss other causes. I would highly recommend that anyone working with veterans listen to it.
