About Dr. Ed Tick:
Dr. Ed Tick, author of the groundbreaking book, "War and the Soul", and creator of a unique and comprehensive model to address the emotional, moral, and spiritual wounds of veterans, their families and communities, has travelled to Seattle from Albany, NY to co-create this Healing Festival.
Soldier's Heart, developed by Edward Tick, Ph.D. and Kate Dahlstedt, MACP, provides a unique and comprehensive model to address the emotional, moral, and spiritual wounds of veter-ans, their families and communities. It offers a genuine healing and homecoming from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by developing a new and honorable warrior identity supported by com-munity. He explores ancient and cross- cultural warrior traditions that reveal the necessities for successful warrior return. The Soldier’s Heart Model facilitates them and applies this model to promote, train, and guide military, professional and community-based efforts to heal the effects of war.
“After surviving war, life cannot go on as it was before because we are so utterly changed by it. And yet, no one prepares our troops or their families or their communities for these profound changes. Instead, we aim to help them become “normal again,” ignoring the reality that war inevitably makes that impossible.” ~ Kate Dahlstedt, from “Caring Means Sharing the Burden”
