This type of injury that results in physical, cognitive, psychological and functioning deficits has been termed as Post-Deployment Syndrome. The high numbers of Soldiers with these types of multiple injuries has been a hallmark of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Overcoming Post Deployment Syndrome is a comprehensive guide for servicemembers, Veterans and their families dealing with the all-too-common repercussions of combat duty, including Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and Musculoskeletal Injury and substance abuse. It offers a practical blend of state-of-the-art traditional and holistic medicine, and teaches the value of mindfulness, movement, psychotherapeutic and creative arts practices, as well as active engagement and partnership with Clinicians in one's own health care.
