Courage After Fire: Coping strategies for troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and their families
by Keith Armstrong, LCSW, Suzanne Best, PhD, and Paula Domenici, PhD
The 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 counseling veterans, Courage After Fire provides strategies and techniques for this challenging journey home.
Helps soldiers and families understand common reactions that can occur after serving in a war zone and specific strategies for addressing them. The easy-to-read format includes lists, sidebars, and short vignettes. Topics include PTSD, grief, depression, substance abuse, changes in your view of the world and yourself, improving couple and family relationships, and rejoining the workforce and reconnecting with children.
“Coming back from a war is a longer journey than any plane flight home.”
—Senator Bob Dole, from the foreword
“This extraordinary work will help the men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan find the courage to rebuild their lives and be successful.” —Honorable Anthony J. Principi, Former Secretary of Veterans Affairs
