This book addresses PTSD, focusing especially on how society can assist soldiers who return home from the war in recovering and starting a new life. Conventional ways of dealing with the trauma and wounds of war, argues Edward Tick, are insufficient: they usually focus only on symptoms and temporary relief. To truly help individuals as well as the psyche of the entire nation, we need a more complex, patient and deeply humane approach. Plain-spoken, well-written, full of real-life stories and the author’s practical insight into the matter of psychological healing, the book is an invaluable resource for any society looking to understand the trauma of war and mitigate its effects. With this translation, Olesia Kamyshnykova hopes to make this resource more accessible to Ukraine.
