Brett Cotter's 3 Keys To Managing PTSD: The Warrior’s Guide to Overcoming Combat Trauma begins with a spirited answer to the question, what is PTSD, and identifies it as the brain’s way of venting trauma. Exploring the manner in which it manifests, the core complexities of PTSD are then discussed. The key areas of its management, identification of signals of this disorder, processing techniques and the ways of assessing these, meditation, and normalization of trauma are then considered. Different exercises are shown for practicing these techniques effectively, and meditating is introduced as the easiest and most useful remedy.

Brett Cotter's 3 Keys To Managing PTSD: The Warrior’s Guide to Overcoming Combat Trauma is a new approach to relaxation and relief, which is a blend of Eastern and Western philosophies. The background information in the beginning discusses the issue from its fundamentals, and is greatly useful for the reader in becoming acquainted with the injury and the suggested cure. With the help of sample forms, exploring questions and directed exercises, Brett enhances the adaptability of the book for practical application. A glossary, a list of resources with web links for treatment for depression and PTSD, and related references make this book a useful guide. The author has offered multiple ways of dealing with the problem effectively, as he says, “Each time your stress is triggered, there’s a new opportunity for you to master releasing it.”
