Mind Over Terror is a true story of three significantly traumatic events which affected two UK cities. Dov Benyaacov-Kurtzman embarked on one incredible mission; a mission to change the way we approach mental health in dealing with survivors of psychological shock and trauma in the UK.
This is the book the author hoped he would never have to write. In today’s world, it is imperative that society possesses the mental skills to be able to effectively manage the impact, and aftermath of terror. The author skilfully mixes his personal story with the social aspect, blended with the damaging effects of the media upon society.
“As terror and trauma unfortunately become more commonplace in our lives, this timely book offers an elixir that will ease global suffering. The cutting-edge six-pronged approach to Cognitive First Aid training quickly and effectively brings survivors of psychological shock from helplessness to effective functioning. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone who is interested in helping fellow human beings reclaim their wholeness after experiencing trauma.” – Mavis Tsai, Ph.D., Co-author of A Guide to Functional Analytic Psychotherapy: Awareness, Courage, Love and Behaviorism; Research Scientist and Clinical Faculty, University of Washington.
