Too often American veterans return from combat and spiral into depression, anger and loneliness they can neither share nor tackle on their own.

Don Philpott and Cheryl Lawhorne-Scott, co-authors with Janelle Hill of the highly successful Wounded Warrior Handbook, detail not only each issue's symptoms, but also discuss what treatments are available, and the best ways for veterans to access those treatments while readjusting to civilian life.

Editorial Reviews

From the foreword: While prevention will always be the ultimate goal, unfortunately in our line of work that is sometimes unavoidable. We define resiliency as having the ability to overcome adversity or setback, rebound from an incident and return to a renewed level of optimal performance. I think you will find that our various resiliency programs provide valuable resources in overcoming adversity and building resiliency in the mind, body, and spirit. As you read through these chapters, it will be evident that resiliency plays a critical role in all phases of the process from initial injury/incident through rehabilitation to sustaining optimality. . . . Stay Fit! Stay Strong! Stay Resilient!
