Courage After Fire by Keith Armstrong
Book DescriptionThe 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. Authored by three mental health professionals with many years of experience counselling veterans, "Courage After Fire" provides strategies and techniques for this challenging journey home. "Courage After Fire" 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. "Courage After Fire" also offers tips on areas such as rejoining the workforce and reconnecting with children.
