1 Kuenning, Delores Life after Vietnam: How Veterans and Their Loved Ones Can Heal the Psychological Wounds of War
1557782318 / 9781557782311; If you fought in the jungles of the Vietnam - or have friends or loved ones who did - you know that for many the battle continues: an inner struggle to better understand the evil of war and heal from its wake. Over half a million veterans still lead lives plagued by serious war-related readjustment problems and images of war in the Middle East have triggered painful wartime memories. With therapy and caring support, however, these enduring wounds can be healed. This book is a sensitive and powerful guide to help Vietnam veterans work through the grief and remorse of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder while offering those close to them insights into the veteran's anger, nightmares, and pain. After laying the historical background to the war, how American got involved, and why Vietnam differed from previous conflicts, the book presents the latest information on the causes and some of the therapites for PTSD. Discussed are the issues and problems that have had the greatest impact on veterans and family members: living with an emotionally traumatized veteran, copies with physical disabilities, losing a loved one, Agent Orange, POWs/MIAs, and Amerasians. 389 pages including appendices, notes, bibliography, and index. The black binding has some tape on it from the original jacket cover. The first page has a bar code, a stamp, and a library envelope. The title page and the top end of the pages each have the library stamp on them. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Sobering Tales: Narratives of Alcoholism and Recovery, O'Reilly, Edmund B.
2 O'Reilly, Edmund B. Sobering Tales: Narratives of Alcoholism and Recovery
1558490655 / 9781558490659; Stories about alcoholism may be the best means we have of comprehending that disorder, because only stories can begin to contain alcoholism's bewildering, protean, contradictory nature. Working from this premise, the author examines literary texts as well as oral recovery narratives presented at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He seeks to discover what these stories reveal about the qualities and mechanisms of addiction and what they suggest about the conditions necessary for recovery. Notes, references, and index included. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

The Sadomasochism of Everyday Life: why We Hurt Ourselves - and Others - and How to Stop, Ross, Ph. D. , John Munder
3 Ross, Ph. D. , John Munder The Sadomasochism of Everyday Life: why We Hurt Ourselves - and Others - and How to Stop
In one form or another, suffering pervades our culture. But why do we torture ourselves in so many areas of everyday life? Why do we work out to the point of exhaustion and pain? Why do women put up with men who abuse them (and men put up with women who abuse them) ? Why do workers endure terrible bosses? The author explains, in this book, why we tolerate these and other familiar situations that cause us pain and suffering and shows how people fall into destructive patterns of behavior that are mutually reinforcing. Ultimately, the author exposes the deeper psychological roots of these familiar rituals of self-torture, pointing the reader toward solutions for these self-destructive patterns. Includes references and index. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
