We are all touched by PTSD in some way—husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, families and friends.

Too often we have questions without answers, or don’t know where to turn for help. But the truth is, what we really need is each other.

Surviving the Shadows is an uplifting journey through powerful and inspiring stories—marked by perseverance and personal courage—about an array of people who have suffered directly or indirectly from Post-Traumatic Stress. Along the way, PTSD education and awareness leader Bob Delaney introduces you to medical experts who have developed groundbreaking methods in dealing with the disorder, and profiles one-of-a-kind programs around the country devoted to assisting PTSD sufferers.

The first step to healing is one person away. The stories within Surviving the Shadows will help you understand the truth about Post-Traumatic Stress, and how we can help each other overcome it every day.

He shares his own experiences dealing with the condition and collects first-person stories from members of the military, law enforcement, emergency services, and civilians who have dealt with PTSD and how they have coped. He integrates the advice of doctors and counselors who explain the physiological and psychological responses that occur, and recommends a method of peer-to-peer therapy. " — Book News
