MAKING PEACE WITH CHRONIC PTSD: Marla's Story
Marla Handy has nothing to hide - anymore. She is a college teacher, a professional consultant and a happily married, resilient woman. But she was terribly mistreated as a child, sexually assaulted as a young adult, and haunted by chronic PTSD for decades. In an intimate conversation with trauma expert Frank Ochberg, MD, she explains how she manages her complex trauma and chronic PTSD symptoms.
This DVD introduces therapists, survivors and the general public to the topic of prolonged PTSD through comments and conversation of two individuals who are uniquely qualified to explain a complicated condition in clear, compelling terms.
Maria Handy is the author of NO COMFORT ZONE: Notes on living with PTSD.
Dr. Frank Ochberg is a psychiatrist and the former Associate Director of the National Institute of Mental Health, and a member of the team that wrote the medical definition of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Dr Ochberg is a founding board member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.
