The New England Journal of Medicine reports that 16 percent one in eight of returning Iraq veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. They are incapable of intimacy, creative work, and self-realization. The key to healing, says psychotherapist Ed The New England Journal of Medicine reports that 16 percent one in eight of returning Iraq veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
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. Get A Copy.

I was diagnosed with chronic combat related PTSD in , after a lifetime of doing what we all did in one form or another, try to fit in and be as they would have me be, despite all the available evidence that this would be an impossible ask.
It didn't work, ultimately I imploded.

There followed nearly a decade at the mercy of the ministering hands of the mental health system, representative of a society that didn't want to know and had declared me and all other veterans returning from Vietnam, guilty and flawed. Guilty because we did what they asked of us and flawed because we lost. We were to have the shame of society's abysmal immorality throughout a decade of debacle, stuffed down our throats so that everyone could get on with feeling good about themselves.
Well, no one in the mental health system, now there's an oxymoron if ever there was one had any idea what was going on with us, nor despite sometimes well intentioned and sometimes just disinterested incompetence, did we begin at all to heal in any way.
Neither the psychiatrists, nor the psychologists, nor the counselors, nor the nurses, doctors or carers, nor for that matter our families or friends had a clue what to do with us. The solution they all had to do something was drugs, counseling or psychotherapy, in isolation or in some trendy combination, all of them based on models that just did not apply.
The results have been predictable, most notably defined by the catastrophic suicide, crime and homelessness rates among veterans, particularly in The US. For myself, they nearly killed me with their kindness, They first convinced me that I was sick and that somehow that I was flawed because that was the case; then that the condition could not be remedied but that the symptoms might be ameliorated and or managed throughout the process of my gradual decline. Well the author of this book has hit the nail on the head!
Over the past few years, after I finally threw off the definitions of a maladjusted society and a chronically deficient "helping" profession, I came to see the "whole ball of wax" for what it was. Only years of meditation and focused and concentrated study of Buddhist teachings have helped me along that path. All of it done with no further reference to those who are supposed to know.

The conclusions I came to line up directly with Tick's analysis, this is a sickness of those who sent us, our society and our government. Our responses are the only sane responses, the only human responses to those who represent what they themselves see as being "normal" but are in fact putrescent to the core. The way veterans were treated after Vietnam and are being treated as they return from Afghanistan now, is just symptomatic of that putrescence.
If there is to be relief for us, we will have to provide it ourselves, and Tick lays down the principles and understandings that might guide us. There is little hope for, or inclination on the part of those who send us to war, ever to shoulder their responsibilities in that regard, or to treat their returning veteran's with honour. That particular skill seems to be the preserve of those societies our spiritual and societal leaders arrogantly regard as "less civilized"; given the recent history this could reasonably be assumed to mean without any sense of morality at all.

I'm not often moved by a book from first page to last, but this has been one of them. Author Tick has spent decades of his life working as a therapist with war survivors from WWII to Iraq who have suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. The scope of his understanding as expressed in the book is reflected in his belief that PTSD "may be the moral defeat of our nation internalized in its veterans. It's impossible to do justice to the breadth and depth of Tick's argument in a brief review, but readers should be prepared for an acceptance of war as something that emerges from the psyche, where it finds expression first in archetypes and myth and then emerges as a rite of passage into adulthood.
In other words, the willingness to go to war in individuals is not pathological but in fact part of a needed growth process. What makes this problematic in the modern age is the terrible destructiveness of modern weaponry and the modern war machine. The individual can be consumed in its ferocity and suffer profound psychological wounds compounded by physical ones that require immense healing.
70 Days Have Passed. 10 Days Remain.
Alas, our culture, as returning veterans from Vietnam learned, knows next to nothing about how to provide healing that helps these men and women return to productive lives. This is a book to be read slowly; there is much to absorb. Drawing on mythology, ancient literature about war, and Native American traditions, Tick explores how other cultures have regarded war and warriors.
For those with either pro-war or anti-war sympathies, he makes an argument that each can learn from - building a model of healing that reflects some of both points of view. War is so deeply embedded in ourselves and in our connection to Divinity, he argues, it will never go away, and not because we are basically savage but because we need war to become fully human. The challenge is to re-imagine war and rediscover what has been understood, taught, and practiced in the warrior traditions that predate the modern age.
While this may seem an impossible task, its vision can still serve those who look for a way to release themselves and others from the ravages of PTSD. The many case histories included in these pages show this process at work, and for those who have tears to shed, prepare to shed them. Jan 15, Scott rated it it was amazing.
