By Keith Armstrong, Suzanne Best, and Paula Domenici
With a foreword by Senator Bob Dole.
The bravery displayed by our soldiers at war is commonly recognized. However, often forgotten is the courage required by veterans when they return home and suddenly face reintegration into their families, workplaces, and communities.
Written by three mental health professionals with many years of experience counseling veterans, Courage After Fire provides strategies and techniques for this challenging journey home.
This book offers soldiers and their families a comprehensive guide to dealing with the all-too-common repercussions of combat duty, including posttraumatic stress symptoms, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.
It details state-of-the-art treatments for these difficulties and outlines specific ways to improve couple and family relationships. Also offers tips on areas such as rejoining the workforce and reconnecting with children.
