This extremely well-written and helpful book offers enlightening guidance and resources for the teen that must face the issue of coping with a parent who has experienced trauma. Written in an easy to understand style, it directly tackles the tough issues that a teenager in this situation must face. Finding My Way offers teenagers many answers to their questions about why their parent acts or reacts in varying disturbing ways. Examples of actual PTSD-related situations and encouraging the teen to write their own experiences with a PTSD affected parent is unique and Finding My Way is a must-read for the teen looking for answers and resources. A wonderfully helpful resource for the teen desperately seeking understanding about this difficult situation.
