“The definitive reference for the defining challenge of courage. If you are a vet, love a vet, or work with vets, then this book is a must-read. If only this book had been available to the veterans coming home from Vietnam.”
—Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, author of On Killing and On Combat
“Surviving Fallujah was one thing; fighting the battle within, at home, is quite another. As an Army medic who survived the greatest battle of the Iraq War, I would have put this book in my aid bag for each of my troops to read upon redeployment. Now, as a counselor for the VA, I’ll make sure my troops do.”
—Brock A. McNabb, Combat Medic, U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division, OIF II & OIF 06-08
“Moore and Kennedy have provided a practical, hands-on collection of sound advice, tips, techniques, and strategies for returning service personnel and their family members. This engaging book should be must-reading for all returning warriors and those mental health workers who serve them.”
—Donald Meichenbaum, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; Research Director of the Melissa Institute for Violence Prevention, Miami, FL
"From leaders in the field, this is one of the most comprehensive books available on PTSD. It covers all the major treatment approaches, as well as associated clinical issues, and is the first volume to apply this amazingly useful knowledge to the specific needs of Service Members and Veterans. "

"While the treatment of PTSD in combat veterans is still evolving, this book provides an impressive review of the most thoroughly studied psychological treatments. Synthesizing two decades' worth of research, the volume offers clinicians valuable information."
