Worth Watching: PTSD

Subject: PTSD

A subject that I have some acquaintance with, and it seems the rest of the world will have increasing opportunity to experience. There have been a couple of shows that have helped either explain how the sufferer feels, or suggests possible treatment.

I found the reactions of the soldiers, and the child, to be the most important part of this documentary. The fact that meditation and breathing can help manage disruptive emotion has long been clear.

I think that a big reason for me to list this here just because media portrayals of PTSD don’t reflect reality. The media image of PTSD sufferers is like comparing a caricature with a photograph.
