Tends to the origin of the wound, not just the symptoms.
So much attention is given to the emotional symptoms of returning soldiers with little, if any for the wounding of their hearts. Dr. Ed Tick, author of War and the Soul and director of Soldier’s Heart has worked for more than three decades to develop and apply a model for not just treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but for actually healing the condition at the origin of the wound. In his first book he mapped out the inner world of the combat survivor with a portrait of the soul at war and now, with his newest writing, Warrior’s Return, he provides a detailed holistic, cultural and spiritual understanding of PTSD and the way home through the restoration of the spiritual warrior. As a combat veteran myself, Dr. Tick’s work has been invaluable in my return home and for a new life after war. Modern diagnostic procedures have not offered much for a problem that historically has existed throughout the many millennium mankind has been determined to grapple with each other, however now veterans from all wars, past and present, have the information needed with this amazing approach.
