We've written Courage After Fire to acknowledge the
many challenges faced by Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans, and to
support our troops and military families in their transition home.
This self-help guide provides information on combat stress, war related
grief, anger, and sleep problems, and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI),
as well as the effects of PTSD on couples and children. In addition,
we offer specific strategies and assistance for the post-war adjustment
and combat stress treatment of Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans,
Active Duty service members, National Guard, and Reservists.
As clinicians who have worked for years with veterans
of various war eras, we recognize that combat affects not only the
troops but their entire circle of family, friends, employers, and
community. Courage After Fire offers information and tips for family
members and close friends-those who have kept things going on the
home front and waited anxiously for their veteran's return. It is
also for doctors, counselors, employers, coworkers, and others who
may be asked to help with a veteran's transition home.
We understand the stigma people feel about asking for psychological
help. And we know that seeking help can be especially difficult for
military service members. Some believe that it shows weakness. The
truth is, getting help for yourself or for someone you care about
takes strength and dedication. Courage After Fire can help you begin
Identifying and addressing problems related to war experiences as
soon as possible is vital to overcoming them. Our goal is to offer
help, hope, and inspiration to our newest veterans on their journey
home from war.
