RVP Military Trauma: The Sacred Wound and the Warrior's Journey Home

Returning Veterans Project presents Military Trauma: The Sacred Wound and the Warrior's Journey Home, virtually on Friday, May 14, 12:00-7:30pm Eastern Time (9:00-4:30pm Pacific Time), led by Edward Tick, PhD, LMHC.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Moral Injury have proven to be of epidemic proportions in our military and veteran populations but very difficult to treat. Healing efforts must not merely strive for symptom reduction and control but match the transformed inner worlds, life experiences and values of the survivors, provide corrective experiences that counteract the traumas, and offer a life and growth path consistent with military service. Our training day will present Dr. Tick's proven "Soldier's Heart" holistic and psycho-spiritual-communal model for the understanding and practices that bring true healing, homecoming and transformation to our military and veterans.

This training is open to all RVP Volunteer Providers, social workers, mental health counselors, community providers, military, veterans and family members.
