More Description

David Cifu and Cory Blake work at the Hunter Holmes McGuire Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center, one of only four comprehensive inpatient, residential and outpatient centers of excellence for polytrauma in the country providing intensive rehabilitation care to veterans and service members who experienced injuries to multiple organ systems. This type of injury that results in physical, cognitive, psychological, and functioning deficits has been termed as Post-Deployment Syndrome. The high numbers of soldiers with these types of multiple injuries has been a hallmark of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

"Overcoming Post Deployment Syndrome" is a comprehensive guide for servicemembers, Veterans and their families dealing with the all-too-common repercussions of combat duty, including traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and musculoskeletal injury, and substance abuse. It offers a practical blend of state-of-the-art traditional and holistic medicine, and teaches the value of mindfulness, movement, psychotherapeutic, and creative arts practices, as well as active engagement and partnership with clinicians in one's own health care. The men and women of the Armed Services have trained in the art of war. This book offers training in the art of healing. Those that learn, understand, and apply the principles within will discover that warriors can excel at both the art of war and the art of healing.
