“James Lake, MD, a pioneer and leader in the integrative mental health movement, provides a practical guide to integrative treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD affects thousands of military personnel exposed to combat, as well as civilians who experience auto accidents, house fires, work-site accidents, exposure to rape or assault, and a host of other painful events. In severe cases PTSD disables individuals from functioning at work and home. Lake provides a link to online inventories to rate the severity of PTSD, and advises frequent self-assessment. He summarizes the best documented integrative therapies to treat PTSD, from Chinese medicines to dance and movement therapy to EEG neurofeedback to meditation and mindfulness approaches to QiGong and Tai Chi to Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy to yoga. Lake discusses safe ways to combine integrative therapies, and advises when to try self-help and when to call on a professional. I strongly recommend Dr. Lake’s book for any individual suffering with PTSD, and for anyone seeking to assist loved ones with PTSD.”
