War touches us all leaving visible and invisible wounds on the warriors who fight disrupting their families and communities and leaving lasting imprints on our national psyche In spite of billions spent on psychological care and reintegration programs we face an epidemic of combat related conditions such as PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder With Warrior’s Return Dr Edward Tick presents a powerful case for changing the way we welcome our veterans back from service a vision and a path for transforming the wounds of war into sources of wisdom honor and growthAfter than 35 years of working with veterans Dr Tick has learned that our conventional ways of addressing the trauma and woundings of war fall far short usually focusing only on symptoms and temporary relief Drawing on lessons from cross cultural wisdom mythical archetypes and proven methods from psychology he o Must read for anyone working with looking to support or just interested in the impact of war on vets I was gratified to see a point I ve been making for years that Native American culture has much to offer in terms of both preparing soldiers and re i tegrating them finally get some validation and application by white professionals The book seems to define PTSD as only affecting soldiers which is sort of fine since it s about soldiers but this is inaccurate Better to have come out and said for the purposes of this book we will look at PTSD only as it applies to veterans The discussion is further weakened by its reliance on the Judeochristian tradition as it looks for healing mythologies and archetypes exception The Odyssey but still solidly Westernthough right onI saw a one woman show in which a presumed war widow opens her door one day to find her husband on her doormissing on after 20 years from some unnamed war He remembers nothing not even her only knows somehow that this is home She has been reading the Odyssey and for wont of anything else to do begins reading it aloud to him It becomes obvious that it is the story of a war hero s journey home through PTSD He values Native American traditions but his attachment to the Bible is hard and fast It s my understanding that this is a huge problem in the armed forces as well There are Christian chaplains mostly Protestant and a few rabbis and that s it Anyway the gist is that a large part of the PTSD resulting from war arises from a moral wound There are a couple of dimensions to this One is that it is morally demanding no matter the cause to kill human beings Often soldiers are unprepared for this and believe that their rightful human feelings make them cowardly Upon return attentive measures for healing must be taken Second war is a social contract and if violated the moral wound is deepened This violation can occur in several ways By devaluing the efforts of soldiers By being unwilling to listen and try to understand what they went through Worst of all by asking them not so much to risk their lives but to commit moral trespass for an unworthy cause Finding out they re in Vietnam or Afghanistan or Ira for a bullshit reason for instanceHe says there s no PTSD in Vietnam among Vietnamese because of the confidence in the cause and the social reintegrationI doubted this but I don t doubt that neglecting the moral harm to soldiers compounds PTSD

    This book completely changed how I view veterans and soldiers in a good way I fell into the trap described in this book in which I don't support the wars our country is fighting and instead of blaming the people who create the wars I also blame the vets and soldiers themselves which is a wrong headed way to view it I now see it for

    I thought it was well written concise and filled with vivid description However I don’t agree with some of his points and ideasthoughts though I do like how thought provoking they were He is right in one aspect veterans and those fighting for our country are not treated how they should be especially by the citizens We live in a bubble and it’s no surprise most do not know how to talk with those with PTSD or any ki

    Tick share's thoughtful and thought provoking ideas but I wished the book had been better organized We seem to cover the same ideas over and over again without ever being offered real suggestions for ways we as a society can help combat vets return
