Trauma following automobile accidents can persist for weeks, months, or longer. Symptoms include nervousness, sleep disorders, loss of appetite, and sexual dysfunction. In "Crash Course," Diane Poole Heller and Laurence Heller take readers through a series of case histories and exercises to explain and treat the health problems and trauma brought on by car accidents.

"The Hellers' ground-breaking new book, Crash Course, provides both a rational background to the concept of symptoms based on actual changes in brain function resulting from traumatic experience, and a potent means of beginning the healing process.
