"PTSD as a Result of Child Abuse" On HealthyPlace TV
Melissa says child abuse and a later car accident in which her boyfriend died, led to her development of PTSD. The PTSD symptoms make it impossible for her to hold a regular job. In addition to discussing what it's like living with PTSD, Melissa describes a flashback, how PTSD has impacted her social life, and how PTSD treatment is helping. That's on this week's HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show.

As a parent myself, I realize that as part of the growing up process, our children do things that cause us to lose trust in them. This week, a parent writes into Dr. Steven Richfield, The Parenting Coach, with that exact problem:
We've lost our trust in our 12 year old daughter after a recent event and don't know where to go from here. Help!
If you're facing a similar situation, take a look at Dr. Richfield's solution.
