Overview


This book addresses both the practical and psychological needs of the families of returning warriors while providing them with a convenient list of helpful resources. Combining the knowledge of fifty experts, it provides answers to questions about the post-deployment transition process, how families experience this process, and how they can help their service member and themselves with the transition. All of the book's authors have either served in the military, counseled thousands of service members and military families through the reintegration process, or cared for their own wounded warriors at home. The authors give straight-forward answers to questions about the transition process, the warrior's experiences, how it impacts their children, and their own concerns. A one-stop source of information filled with useful advice, this book is unequaled. It is published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Encompassing, lots of food for thought, covers a wide range of topics. This is a great handbook with many excellent resources, especially for those newer to the military lifestyle."

--Theresa D. Lupcho, Military Clinical Psychologist, Fort Benning, Georgia

"When the Warrior Returns is a unique, easy-to-use, comprehensive, and tightly edited resource for military family members--as well as an excellent single-source complementary text for health care professionals who need to garner additional skills and exclusive insights that might not otherwise be so readily attainable, detailed, or thorough. The book's collaborative and full spectrum of up-to-date topics, researched and authored by an array of experts--a well-done virtual 'E Pluribus Unum' approach--cannot be afforded justice by a single endorsement or review. This complete work will become a definitive 'Best Practices' foundation guide for all individuals in any relationships or positions who wish to render the utmost professional service and personal support to those who need it--and to those who deserve it--the most."

--Jon M. Corey, U.S. Army combat veteran, university professor, contributing editor, Leadership Moments: Turning Points That Changed Lives and Organizations

"When the Warrior Returns: Making the Transition at Home is an excellent overview of the issues and any warrior or family may face as the warrior returns home. The book is written in a straight forward and realistic manner addressing the challenges these families face including many practical tips and recommendations. I would strongly recommend this book to families and practitioners alike as it clearly outlines the challenges, makes realistic recommendations and provides numerous valuable resources. Should be a part of every military or VA practitioner's library."

--David L. Kennedy, LCSW, CAPT, MSC, USN (Ret.)
