“We are more aware of negative things that trigger our partner and more open to seeing from each other’s point of view. We learned how to listen to each other, relate to how the other is feeling, and understand what they are trying to communicate.”

Inside the Lesson

In this episode, Dr. Edward Tick discusses PTSD and how modern-day treatments have failed our warriors. Dr. Tick is a renowned psychotherapist who works with veterans and their families, and he is the author of this episode’s focus, War and the Soul. What you’ll learn:

We live in a “war illiterate society.” What does that mean?
The typical treatment for PTSD today is medication plus cognitive behavioral therapy, but these methods are inadequate for treating and healing soldiers of PTSD.

What is a soul wound?
Many soldiers come back from war with broken hearts, shattered belief systems, and an unsteady view of right and wrong, good and evil.

What are the differences between ancient and modern views of war?
Over the centuries, service as a warrior has been used to initiate young soldiers into adult roles and responsibilities.

How can war wounds be healed?
Dr. Tick helps warriors to understand that their warrior service is a lifelong journey, and he guides them through the steps of healing.
