In recent years, we have seen an unacceptable increase in human-inflicted violence–people going berserk, seemingly out of nowhere and (only on the surface) for no reason. The hideous images are seared into our memory. Tragically, health-care workers on the front lines are not immune. In their daily work, they have been victims of homicides, hostage-takings, robberies, physical and sexual assaults, and psychological trauma of all kinds. The Violent Person is written for these individuals as well as the general reader in jargon-free language by one of the foremost experts in the world on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here is a book for anyone with a concern for, and an interest in, the mechanisms of human violence, stress at the breaking point, and the workings of the human brain. This book is written to save lives.

Flannery Jr., Ph.D., FACLP, a licensed clinical psychologist, is Associate Professor of Psychology (Part Time), Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, as well as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School, and Adjunct Professor of Psychology (Part-Time), the Woods College of Advancing Studies, Boston College.
