Publication Date: 2010-01-10
A national faculty member for the Veterans Administration and college professor distills three decades of experience in understanding and treating the medical and psychiatric traumas of veterans of the Vietnam War and the Gulf War, and draws implications for veterans of the Iraq War. Official amnesia and denial about the true impact of war skew the training and preparation of soldiers and stand in the way of appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Scurfield documents the therapeutic effects of innovative programs including a return trip to Vietnam in 2000 for veterans accompanied by current college students.
