Editorial Reviews


"Think of Healing War Trauma as a counterinsurgency field manual to battle the invisible and incapacitating wounds sustained by hundreds of thousands during a decade of war. Helping these soldiers requires more than talk therapy and drugs, and the editors, both combat veterans and mental-health professionals, offer an exciting array of creative and complementary treatments―and hope―in this handbook."

―Ann Gerhart, senior writer, The Washington Post

"This shining gem belongs on the desk of all who seek to heal war trauma. Confronting the complexities of the wounded soul reminds us of the need to broaden the scope of treatment strategies. Clearly, one size does not fit all, and this book opens our minds to possibilities. The chapter on resolving combat-related guilt is alone worth the trip to the bookstore. A beautiful blend of theory and practice."

―Glenn R. Schiraldi, PhD, Lt. Col. (USAR, Ret.), author of The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Sourcebook and The Resilient Warrior Before, During, and After War

"Therapist/veterans Scurfield and Platoni are among our most experienced practitioners in the treatment of the psychological traumas of war, and their knowledge has been hard-won in both the clinic and on the battlefield. Here they take an eclectic and pragmatic look at therapeutic alternatives to trauma treatment. This is not only an essential work for health-care professionals, it is an accessible must-read for those seeking to understand the challenges faced by thousands of veterans."

―Barry Goldstein, MD, PhD, author of Gray Land: Soldiers on War and associate professor at the University of Rochester
