Edward Tick: A New Vision for Healing
Edward Tick is a practicing psychotherapist who has specialized in veterans’ health and PTSD for more than 40 years. He is the cofounder of the Soldier’s Heart nonprofit organization and the author of many books, including Warrior’s Return and War and the Soul. Sounds True producer Stephen Lessard drew this week’s excerpt from the audio program Restoring the Warrior’s Soul: An Essential Guide to Coming Home. In his words, “What I loved about this selection I’ve chosen for you is that it Dr. Tick gets right into the fundamentals we need to reevaluate in order to create a new vision for returning home after war.” Here, Dr. Tick explains that suffering after war need not be lifelong, and that returned warriors can discover deep wisdom in their experience.
