These are fairly new booklets that were produced up here and are great resources. I had both booklets in pdf already downloaded and in a zip file but for some reason I got an error when I tried to upload them.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the Family

Purpose of this Booklet When someone at home has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the whole family will be affected. If you are parents with young children (pre-school to 12 years) and if you or your spouse/partner has PTSD, this booklet is for you. It will provide both of you with information to help you recognize how your children might be affected and what to do about it. It will also alert you to the potential signs of excessive stress in your children and suggest ways you can help to protect your children from disruptions in family life.
