  • I was diagnosed with chronic combat related PTSD in 1992, 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, g [...]


  • 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 takes 276 pages of careful analysis before reaching this conclusion, but he builds a strong case [...]


  • A fine look into the madness that gets swept under so many rugs Who can walk away from war unchanged This book helps us to understand the trauma that occurs in the mind of soldiers faced with the brutality of combat It is to our benefit to know these stories so that we can help our soldier s truly to come home.


  • Worth reading Neutral on the topic of Is this war that war justified yet offers insight into war s effects on the soul of the one tasked to carry out the war.Should be read by anybody who has been to war, who served but did not have the opportunity to deploy to war, and most importantly by those with the power to declare war and those who support them.


  • While his theories may be controversial among professionals, to a layman such as myself, they make whole bunch of sense Very moving and insightful Tick s work motivated me to get involved in a minor capacity supporting veterans.


  • Edward Tick uses Jungian psychology as a lense to view the post traumatic state of war veterans He contends that PTSD is a soul wound an identity disorder naturally resulting from the brutal experiences of war that are not addressed appropriately in light of the archetypal unconsciuos.War seems to be an elemental part of the human experience, he claims, and modern war is especially damaging to the human psyche for several reasons One is that modern society has not developed the warrior culture w [...]


  • I struggle with Jungian psychology To me, it seems to take traditional cultures and throw them all into one unified philosophy of self and society I don t deny that there are strong commonalities across peoples and times That said, equating Ancient Greece, 19th century American Indians, and post 9 11 soldiers feels incomplete Each of these cultures has specific, important aspects that define the universal archetypes enactment Plus, I m always hesitant when I see a western writer praise the inher [...]


  • This was an amazing book that combined the first person stories of veterans mostly from the Vietnam War with a psychologist s description of PTSD as a soul disorder rather than a stress disorder.He describes the experience of going to war as an initiation one which in modern times is almost never successfully completed As a result, those who go war undergo the first part the tearing down of the previous personality and the transformation into a soldier but seldom receive the support to integrate [...]


  • Dr Tick lucidly and compassionately makes the argument that it is not war itself that is responsible for PTSD which he presents as a soul disorder, rather than as a stress disorder but the way our society treats those who have fought its wars It s not the experience itself that causes the trauma it s then being unable to share the burden of the experience Taking communal responsibility for the soldiers experiences and treating them as warriors who have been through a rite of passage and have eme [...]


  • Beautiful This is one of my favorite books The author talks about the importance of integrating the warrior archetype into our cultural psyche in order to make meaning of our participation in warfare, and to avoid psychological casualties I think he s right if soldiers can t make some meaning of their combat experiences, the shit they see and do, they get stuck , and that looks like the cluster of symptoms that make up PTSD And I like that he is open to both creative ways of conceptualizing wha [...]


  • Ed Tick shares his fascinating and valid perspective on the core reasons why our soldiers and veterans develop what we call PTSD I am enthralled by his accounts of war, warrior cultures, and rituals throughout history.cially the themes of initation war AS initiation and sacredness Compared to these accounts and themes, our culture is dreadfully lacking in what it takes for veterans to heal and reclaim their lives meaningfully I am hopeful that this book will give a context to veterans in which t [...]


  • I wish I could rate the book higher, but it just does not warrant it Tick has streaks of brilliance followed by valleys of confusion The highlights of this text include his call for a collective accountability for wars a country undertakes and the care of the retiring warriors The confusion comes from his chasing of the myth of a warrior I understand, and appreciate, his drawing from different faiths and cultures but I am not sure if his points addressed the overall idea effectively They seemed [...]


  • The first part of the book deals with the myths and archtypes of war, and is rather academic The second half of the book deals directly with PTSD The stories of veterans are the most interesting part, in particular vets returning to Vietnam in an attempt to heal their war traumas I like how the author considers PTSD to be a soul sickness and one of our society, due to the fact that we isolate our war veterans in a attempt to retain our society s innocence over the wars our country has been invo [...]


  • Thank you, Edward Tick, PH D for your service to veterans plagued by dislocation, stress, loss, moral ambiguity and the surrender of the ego I appreciate your exemplary manner as portrayed in War and the Soul Healing Our Nation s Veterans from Post traumatic Stress Disorder.


  • We must learn to walk through hell with our hearts wide open p 285 This is the seminal work for current helping professionals working with veterans, their families, and our communities I could not recommend it enough.


  • What is the soul Apparently soldiers find out when they are faced with losing it Tick realizes the only way to heal PTSD fully is to engage soldiers in soul healing Interesting sociological discussion of warrior ,initiation rites, and romanticized views of war.




  • This book talks about the trauma of conflict and what war does to one I ll be reading this again and again.



  • A discourse on the profound emotional and psychological impact on those who experience war and its life long effects.


  • wbez Program_WV_SegmenAnother heavy but life affirming interview on NPR I like people who believe talking is healing.



  • Even better knowing that I have met and heard Dr Tick speak The stories of real soldiers as well as the science and story behind PTSD is astounding and worth every page





  • It was an amazing read I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever served in the military Especially those with combat experience.
