Publisher Comments:

The New England Journal of Medicine reports that 16 percent (one in eight) of returning Iraq veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Such vets typically cant hold jobs. They are incapable of intimacy, creative work, and self-realization. Some cant leave the house because they are afraid they will kill or be killed. The key to healing, says psychotherapist Ed Tick, is in how we understand PTSD. In wars overwhelming violence, the soul—the true self—flees and can become lost for life. He redefines PTSD as a true identity disorder, with radical implications for therapy. First, Tick establishes the traditional context of war in mythology and religion. Then he describes in depth PTSD in terms of identity issues. Finally, drawing on world spiritual traditions, he presents ways to nurture a positive identity based in compassion and forgiveness. War and the Soul will change the way we think about war, for veterans and for all those who love and want to help them. It shows how to make the wounded soul whole again. When this work is achieved, PTSD vanishes and the veteran can truly return home.

Synopsis:

This book teaches how truly to heal war trauma in veterans, their families, and our communities. Drawing on history, mythology, and soldiers' stories from World War I to Iraq, it affirms the deep damage war does to the psyche and addresses how to reclaim the soul from war's hell.

I've only read some of this book, but I can tell you that if you are a soldier, related to a soldier, are thinking of getting into social work or psychological therapy, and want a better understanding of PTSD (and how to treat it), this is a must read. It is heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. Many personal stories of various soldiers' struggles will be difficult to read, but if we are to help them re-adjust to civilian life, we need to know what they are experiencing.

This book is a "MUST" read for anyone working with Veterans! For anyone wanting to understand some of what Veterans have been going through are going through, this book will provide that to you.
I was grateful to find this book when I first started working with Veterans and it gave me new insight to what goes on and how to work with Veterans as human beings, not just looking at a diagnosis. Dr. Tick has done and is doing remarkable healing work and I was blessed to attend one of his workshops on PTSD. I would highly recommend anyone working with Veterans to attend his workshops. The book is well written and I have passed it along to many.
