Recent statistics indicate up to 70 percent of Americans are exposed to some form of trauma during their life time. Most victims of trauma experience at least some symptoms of posttraumatic stress (PTS): intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, anxiety, vigilance, disturbing dreams, avoidance of reminders, survival guilt, anger issues, self-medication (usually with alcohol or other substances), sexual issues, etc. About 20 percent of trauma victims develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), i.e., experience many of the above symptoms for a prolonged period of time.

Individuals with PTSD symptoms are often given advice from friends and family members. Typical examples are: try not to think about it; give it some time, and it will go away, get involved in your hobbies so you will not think about it, a couple of beers will help you relax and get some sleep. These kinds of advice often make the trauma victims feel worse because they cannot possibly forget the trauma, and they often think there is something wrong with them otherwise they would be able to forget about it.

The Missing Keys is Dr. Gino’s attempt to help trauma victims resolve issues regarding their inability to forget, their constant attempts to avoid thoughts and reminders of trauma, and to address collateral problems arising from symptoms of PTSD such as anger, sexual, and addiction issues.

Dr. Gino has more than twenty-five years of experience working with trauma victims. He assessed and helped war veterans at the Honolulu VA Hospital for almost fifteen years. He has helped trauma victims in private practice for the past ten years, has helped addicts for the past thirty-two years, and he is a software developer. The Missing Keys integrates his fields of expertise and includes verbatim therapy sessions to help the reader feel involved in the actual therapy.

New York Times Bestseller

From the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs, a radical new way of thinking about depression and anxiety.

What really causes depression and anxiety - and how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking anti-depressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true – and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong.

Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are not caused by a chemical imbalance in our brains. In fact, they are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari´s journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions – ones that work.

It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today. His TED talk – 'Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong' – has been viewed more than 8 million times and revolutionized the global debate. This book will do the same.
