EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In the 16th century, the beginning of African enslavement in the Americas until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment and emancipation in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, isn't it likely that many of the enslaved were severely traumatized? And did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery? Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage, convict leasing, domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? Dr. Joy DeGruy, answers these questions and more. With over thirty years of practical experience as a professional in the mental health field, Dr. DeGruy encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and behaviors through the lens of history and so gain a greater understanding of how centuries of slavery and oppression have impacted people of African descent in America. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome helps to lay the necessary foundation to ensure the well-being and sustained health of future generations and provides a rare glimpse into the evolution of society's beliefs, feelings, attitudes and behavior concerning race in America.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

One group that has received little attention in the psychological literature, with regards to issues of race as related to the practice of psychology, is the military. The military is a unique cultural entity that most people think provides soldiers of African descent with the system and resources they need to serve in the U.S. military. Author, Janetra Johnson, had chronological over a decade of National Guard history, in which she discovered the National Guard erroneously maintained a deregulated EEO and AEP program.Janetra is a military veteran and she fought the Guard over its deregulated pay policy during the California National Guards largest financial crisis. The California National Guard's recruiting bonus controversy was the largest known financial calamity and it had received little attention.Inside the book, Janetra walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book is written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a great reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about PTSS.What is Post Traumatic Slave Disorder?According to Wikipedia, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) is a 2005 book resulting from years of historical and psychological research by Dr. Joy DeGruy (née Leary), Ph.D. PTSS describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with or, related to multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that include but are not limited to undiagnosed and untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in enslaved Africans and their descendants. PTSS posits that centuries of slavery in the United States, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, have resulted in multigenerational maladaptive behaviors, which originated as survival strategies."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Janetra Johnson studied the African American culture during slavery and the Jim Crow era. She also studied women rights. She earned a Bachelors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She had written a series of books about her experiences in the California National Guard. These books were written from the perspective of an African American veteran.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This interpretive qualitative study used Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) and Bowen Family Systems (BFST) theories to explore mental health service use by African Americans. The goal of the study was two-fold. First, to increase understanding of the lived experiences of African Americans, with consideration of the impact of historical and ongoing race and oppression, across generations. Second, to explore mental health service use via the lens of the African American experience. Data collection included the use of two semi-structured interviews, a focused genogram and a demographic questionnaire. All participants self-identified as African American and were comprised of seven females and two males. The data analysis revealed themes in two main categories: The African American Experience and Conversations about Mental Health. The resulting themes as follows, with four in the first category and three in the second, respectively: ongoing racism and oppression, symptoms of PTSS, strength and character, The Talk, types of sharing, perception and the service use advocate. The findings provide the context through which the African American experience influences mental health service use.

I describe in this book how the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome has historically and currently affected my own family, and subsequently many other Black families. The book suggests that pre-slavery, Middle Passage, post-slavery, and modern-day conditions contributed to the Black family’s pathologies. It goes on to demonstrate the manifestation of some of these specific problems in my family that has been caused by these historical conditions. It shows how the past continues to write on the slate of today. It also implies that the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome will continue to affect the Black family in the distant future.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Transform Negative Thoughts and Behaviors into Positive Ones with the Help of this Empowering Guide! “Should I sacrifice my life to live ‘Half American’?” “Will things be better for the next generation in the peace to follow?” “Is the kind of America I know worth defending?” Those were just some of the heart-wrenching questions put forward in a letter by a 26-year-old dark-skinned African-American army veteran named James G. Thompson in the 1940s. His letter was addressed to the editors of the Pittsburgh Courier, which the latter then published. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is a mental and social theory coined by Dr. Joy DeGruy. It takes into account a series of events and situations, including Jim Crow laws, mass incarceration, and natural disasters, over time that are meted out more harshly against the African-American community, beginning with slavery in America. Inside this book, the author Janetra Johnson discusses how she found out about Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, how she was able to manage her negative thoughts, as well as what other veterans should look forward to when visiting a military therapist to discuss their racial and financial thoughts of slavery and Jim Crow. Johnson seeks to help other veterans left with psychological wounds after a racial incident during military service by providing practical tools to help them develop skills that transform negative attitudes and behaviors into positive ones — with the end goal of empowering the veteran to not just survive, but also thrive as they live life and achieve true healing. Over the course of this inspiring book, you will: - Immerse yourself in a military veteran’s first-hand account of her fight for justice and the mental health struggles she faced during those challenges - Identify triggers and symptoms, so you can avoid a personal crisis and stay on track towards self-improvement - Learn 3 practical and useful tips to reduce those unwanted and intrusive thoughts of slavery and Jim Crow - And so much more! What makes this book unique is that it addresses the personal and private dilemmas dark-skinned African-American military soldiers and veterans have struggled with for generations. In Johnson’s own words, “Keep moving forward.”
