A Pawnbroker Won't Have My Purple Heart PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Pawnbroker Won't Have My Purple Heart free pdf Billy Jordan returns from Viet Nam having spent two years there and in incarceration in a North Vietnam POW camp, under torture. Back in the US, Billy is unable to adjust and eventually is released from the VA hospital in San Francisco, where he was treated for PTSS. Reverting to alcohol and drugs as a means by which he can deal with his traumas he enters various community-center rehab programs for help. There he comes under the treatment of Shaw York, a psychiatrist who uses hypnosis and subliminal suggestion to tear away the layers of denial which have been constructed by Billy to avoid some very painful memories and a significant relationship that ended in trauma. The story incorporates actual treatment session transcripts to show the process of how Billy is led back from his self-constructed prison and to the acceptance of what actually happened and WHO he really is. As means for clarification regarding uses of non-standard ellipses," my intention was to indicate various periods of silent time occurring during the hypnotic trance, which is often the case in actual treatment. To have done otherwise would have made the transcript/session appear flowing without pauses...., an injustice to accuracy. Thank you for your time and consideration.
