✏Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Summary : 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.

✏Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Summary : From acclaimed author and researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy comes this fascinating book that explores the psychological and emotional impact on African Americans after enduring the horrific Middle Passage, over 300 years of slavery, followed by continued discrimination. From the beginning of American chattel slavery in the 1500’s, until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment 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, Dr. Joy DeGruy asked the question, “Isn’t it likely those enslaved were severely traumatized? Furthermore, did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery?” Emancipation was followed by another hundred years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage and convict leasing, and domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in further unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas visited upon generation after generation of a people produce? What are the impacts of the ordeals associated with chattel slavery, and with the institutions that followed, on African Americans today? Dr. DeGruy answers these questions and more as she encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and emotions through the lens of history. By doing so, she argues they will gain a greater understanding of the impact centuries of slavery and oppression has had on African Americans. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is an important read for all Americans, as the institution of slavery has had an impact on every race and culture. “A masterwork. [DeGruy’s] deep understanding, critical analysis, and determination to illuminate core truths are essential to addressing the long-lived devastation of slavery. Her book is the balm we need to heal ourselves and our relationships. It is a gift of wholeness.”—Susan Taylor, former Editorial Director of Essence magazine

✏Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Summary : Inside the book, the author, Janetra Johnson walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book was written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (P.T.S.S.) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a considerable reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about P.T.S.S. and what other military veterans should look forward to when visiting a military therapist to discuss racial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. WHAT IS POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME? 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: Author, Janetra Johnson uses her experiences from her personal and professional life to create a series of military books based on her real-life court case: Janetra Johnson v. Departments of the Army and Air Force et al. The books are written in the first person to give the reader a firsthand account of what the veteran saw during the California National Guards largest financial disaster. Johnson is a military veteran who served on active duty in the California National Guard and earned her Master’s degree in Business Administration. She lives in Fresno, California with her three children.

✏From Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self Determination and Greatness Book Summary : The purpose of this book is to explain how the intergenerational trauma derived from slavery segregation, and insidious racial animus has impacted on today's African Americans. The psychological abnormalities or deviances are examined from their root causes. Masking of the resulting conditions are perused for their socioeconomic implications. Independent reasoning and the appropriate setting for its development are suggested. In addition, awareness of the greatness of our ancient legacy is presented to break the psychological chains causing Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS). The book describes how PTSS leads to abnormal bouts with rage and abusive behavior, mostly against other blacks. Awareness of the trauma often leads to denial through greater reliance on defensive behavior that departs from reality. PTSS is triggered both internally and through DNA memory and externally by the racially hostile society that we live in. Research on this subject by Dr. Joy De Gray is reviewed and analyzed. An unexamined PTSS in denial is traced to mental slavery that causes dependency and identification with victimizers. This mental slavery is based on fear and inferiority complex that produces distorted views of self. Liberation and enslavement become indistinguishable. Individuals become psychologically self-destructive, a burden to themselves, loved ones, and society. Options to find "the better angels" of our true history to break PTSS's cycle and resulting impact are presented.
