War and the Soul: Healing our Veterans, Families, and Communities from the Wounds of War

War and the Soul: Healing our Veterans, Families, and Communities from the Wounds of War

Dr. Edward Tick is a practicing psychotherapist who has worked with veterans with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for more than 30 years. For Tick, the key to helping veterans heal lies in how we understand PTSD.

Tick defines PTSD as more than simply a stress and anxiety disorder; it is also an identity disorder and a “wounding of the soul” resulting from the deep trauma of war. Using a holistic, psycho-spiritual model—including Greek mythology and Native American traditions—Tick helps veterans confront and heal their wounds and thereby become whole again.

Tick is the founder of Soldier’s Heart, a non-profit veterans advocacy and safe-return program. His clinical practice and his work with Soldier’s Heart are the basis for his recent book, War and the Soul: Healing Our Nation’s Veterans from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (2005).
