1.0 von 5 Sternen Proven by science! 22. Februar 2011
Von Desiree Troy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I would like to start out with explaining that I am not a psychologist or even a student in the field... yet. However, I have suffered from PTSD since I was 14 years old and am currently doing independent research on various treatment methods of PTSD and many types of trauma in the hopes of one day earning my degree in psychology. That being said, I must also admit that I am not a fan of Dr. Phil McGraw, nor do I have any sort of appreciation or respect for his methods. The very fact that the author of this book, Dr. Frank Lawlis, works as an adviser on Dr. Phil's show, is cause enough for skepticism.

My biggest complaint about this book is how Lawlis does not interject with any sources or use names of case studies or even state any data. How does he back-up his methods? By merely stating that it "has been proven by science". Okay then... Quite bluntly, if someone who is a doctor is not able to provide source material and statistical information in his text at all I have extreme suspicions about his reasons for writing the book and his experience on the subject. (There is a resource section in the back of the book, but, again, there's no mention of these resources or data in the text itself.)

My second complaint is that this book does not read at all as if it were written to treat PTSD. The biggest points he makes is that someone who suffers from PTSD needs plenty of sleep, fresh air, and a healthy, vitamin-enriched diet. A wee bit obvious, don't you think? The introductory chapters are nothing more than overly informed methods of treating anxiety, nightmares, and stress. As I neared the end of his description of numerous vitamins and dietary supplements, I seriously considered giving up on this book (something I never do) but persisted on hoping for a dramatic upswing in regards to his supposed "revolutionary, science-based approach to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder recovery".

I can't say I was disappointed by the continuation of his constant "proven by science" remarks or lack of description when he uses a mindfulness-based stress reduction technique (using a specific type of sound frequency and rhythm over headphones... also known as biofeedback) on a traumatized soldier... After which he never explains what happened in that little story beyond whipping out the headphones and giving them to the soldier. For example, where he learned the technique or even what it's called or how professionals generally use it on patient, these things are never mentioned. To be quite blunt once again, this is a serious oversight in a book about treating PTSD... To bring up a treatment method and not explain anything about it, is extremely unprofessional. Thankfully, the book was just about finished at this point so I didn't have to suffer through his "revolution" for too long.

Furthermore, something that irritates me about Lawlis and his colleague, Dr. Phil is that they both claim to be experts in various fields that have little to nothing in common with each other. At the beginning of most chapters, Lawlis starts out with explaining how he's working in a new field in a new location. I don't believe that anyone, especially a psychologist, should publish a book, let alone go on national television, when they cannot decide what their focus is on. To write a book or have a television show, you are saying to your audience that you are an expert, that you know what you're talking about.

On Lawlis' website, in his biography, it says that he earned his Ph.D in psychology with an emphasis in medical psychology and rehabilitation. He's working on a project regarding alcohol and drug dependency treatment and has worked with patients who have chronic and acute pain, cancer and psychosomatic problems. His list of achievements continue on but none of them have to do with experience treating trauma aside from his recent work on a project entitled "<u>Camp Better America</u> as an adviser and instructor", which works with soldiers and their families on how to reintroduce those coming back from war to society.

I'm not saying he's not distinguished in the field, however, I am saying that he doesn't know enough about trauma or PTSD to write a book about treating it. Trauma, if you've ever experienced it or spent numerous hours talking to victims of trauma or sufferers of PTSD is a nightmare and a tragedy. It's horror. Lawlis mentions in this book that he's angry about the obstacles soldiers returning from war have to face when they come home, where they feel like strangers amidst their family and tortured in their own bodies, but the methods he mentions barely even scratch the surface of how a psychologist would treat someone in that position, let alone victims of rape, molestation, physical torture and abuse, mental abuse, early attachment disruption, natural disasters, grief, etcetera.

Honestly, I found this book to be insulting to those who have been traumatized and live with PTSD. Healing from trauma is not an easy task. It's not as simple as sleeping properly, exercising, and eating healthily and for a psychologist to think that it's that simple is a travesty. This book is embarrassing to those brave, strong psychologists who take on trauma victims and PTSD sufferers as clients and spend months to years earning their trust, helping heal them of their symptoms and teaching them methods of dealing with life on an hourly and daily basis.

If you're looking for a well-written, informed and organized book on methods of treating trauma and PTSD, I highly recommend <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Trauma-Treatment-Handbook-Protocols-Professional/dp/0393706184/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298336326&sr=8-1">The Trauma Treatment Handbook: Protocols Across the Spectrum</a> by Robin Shapiro. It's an excellent overview and written in such a way that's easy enough for anyone to understand.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Disservice to PTSD victims 11. Mai 2012
Von Andy O'Hara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is quack medicine at its worst--from the "chief content advisor" for Dr. Phil (who associates PTSD with violence and recently called veterans with PTSD, "Monsters").

Forget about medications and psychotherapy, says the author. These are "old practices." He, of course, has the NEW answers, and what are they? First, we need to cleanse the toxins from the brain (sound just like a Sunday morning infomercial?) and get rid of the "parasites" in your intestines. Next is "positive thinking," "power breathing," "exposure to blue light," and "chewing gum." Herbs and vitamins--he lists them all, from ginseng to Rhodiola ("a Siberian herb that soldiers have used for stamina").

Not enough? Oh, Dr. Lawlis has a machine, too. It's his "Bioacoustical Utilization Device," which he claims shuts down frequencies that your brain has been using "inappropriately" and resets them to a "lower one." If that don't work, put on your 'jammies and hop into his hyperbaric chamber for some sleep, during which your immune system will stimulate internal healing.

Feel better? As a PTSD sufferer, it alarms me to see this kind of information disseminated to others who need help. "Pop medicine," of course, is a big seller--it has kept Dr. Phil and Dr. Lawlis in business. I pray that those of you who also fight this disorder seek competent medical advice, medications as needed (there are many, now, and new improved ones coming out every day) and good therapy to help you through the tough times.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Pop psychology at its worst 2. März 2012
Von Patrick S. Crouch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book should be titled "Buy the device I invented". It pushes a device called the BAUD that, while FDA approved, does not have any testing behind it. Did I mention that it was also "invented" by the author? Being a sufferer of PTSD, having been through therapy for many years, a veteran, and also being a psychology student pursuing a graduate degree, I find this book to be offensive and dangerous. There is no magic bullet to cure PTSD as this book seems to be pushing, and yes I read it cover to cover. Do your research before buying this quack's book.

Von Laurel Riverside - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I am all too familiar with the nightmare of PTSD. When I happened to see this book on display at a local library, I decided to look into it, despite its mentioning Dr. Phil on the cover (which would not be a selling point with me). This book is written in a very simple manner, and with wisdom and insight. As I read the first chapter, I said, 'Here at last is someone who understands something about this illness.' Psychotherapy is not generally successful as a front line approach to this illness because, as Dr. Lawlis points out, the brain of a person suffering from PTSD is not working in its normal mode, biologically. The first thing to do is take steps to re-establish normal brain function, and he makes recommendations for how to do this. I think many PTSD sufferers could find this book helpful, and also experience the uplift that comes simply from encountering an author who understands so well some of the basic realities of the problem. I was also moved by Dr. Lawlis' obvious caring for the plight of our poor service personnel who have endured such traumatizing experiences. I say more power to him. I'm very glad I read this book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I'm sure he's nice, but definitely Overrated 2. Januar 2013
Von BEKKYB2003 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've not finished college but this book is very predictable with the exception that Dr. Lawless believes ptsd comes from some kind of physical head injury- which, with people who've been to war in the past 10 years possibly might. I just don't get his point. This "breakthrough" he speaks of is kind of pointless since most people get ptsd from emotional trauma. i would know.
