More than six million Americans suffer from PTSD. Stanford psychiatrist Shaili Jain’s book, The Unspeakable Mind: Stories of Trauma and Healing from the Frontlines of PTSD Science, draws on a decade of her own clinical innovation and research. Dr. Jain argues for a paradigm shift in how PTSD should be approached, highlighting how treatment is being transformed to become more accessible, acceptable and available to sufferers.
