Silenced Trauma: Twelve Feminist Therapists and Activists Respond to One Woman's Recovery From War

About a recovering alcoholic and Vietnam veteran with PTSD who was a Navy nurse. It is not about one patient with twelve therapists! Other than the woman's own therapist, the essayists are responding with the program each would suggest based on the case notes they were given. I found it quite interesting.
