Every day, a battle is being fought for the mental health of our military personnel. In this gripping expose, Marjorie Morrison, takes readers behind the lines to show us the crisis facing our military's mental healthcare system. When Morrison left her thriving private psychology practice for a three-month assignment at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, she hoped she would make a difference in the lives of Marines. She had no idea that it was she who would be changed. Those three months grew into a yearlong project, but the more Morrison tried to do her best for them, the more roadblocks she met. Despite the broken system, she was and is determined to help protect service member's mental health. The Inside Battle offers readers a glimpse into the current crisis through Morrison's personal experience and empowers them to make a difference in the lives of the men and women of the military. Marjorie Morrison has helped me to see that we have the power, the knowledge and most importantly the responsibility to protect each and every person who raises their hand and swears to protect our country. It is our duty as civilians ¦to fight for the men and women who fight for us. We know today how to support people before the stress happens so they don't have to come home broken. Debbie Ford N.Y. Times best selling author of Why Good People Do Bad Things and co-author of The Shadow Effect

Decades after Charles Figley's landmark Trauma and Its Wake was published, our understanding of trauma has grown and deepened, but we still face considerable challenges when treating trauma survivors. This is especially the case for professionals who work with veterans and active-duty military personnel. War Trauma and Its Wake, then, is a vital book. The editors—one a Vietnam veteran who wrote the overview chapter on treatment for Trauma and Its Wake, the other an Army Reserve psychologist with four deployments—have produced a book that addresses both the specific needs of particular warrior communities as well as wider issues such as battlemind, guilt, suicide, and much, much more. The editors' and contributors' deep understanding of the issues that warriors face makes War Trauma and Its Wake a crucial book for understanding the military experience, and the lessons contained in its pages are essential for anyone committed to healing war trauma.

"Efforts to exclude the less resilient from serving in the military represent a narrow and flawed understanding of what resilience is and the potential for resilience building to enhance the strength of a military. We must focus on the strengths that every individual possesses rather than the weaknesses. We must focus on team building and leadership and avoid adopting an individualistic and elitist model that harkens back to the medieval mind-set. The field of military resilience holds the promise to fundamentally transform the military in ways that are just now being imagined; to limit this potential by focusing efforts on identifying and excluding those we deem less resilient will certainly retard this potential. The contents of this book rightly focus on achieving these goals by addressing two major areas: understanding the nature and determinants of resilience in military settings, and describing methods and techniques for building resilience. Although it can be argued that resilience is a somewhat nebulous construct that has many definitions, the present volume tackles this problem by attempting to inform an improved definition for the betterment of both military personnel and their families. As advances in military resilience are realized, we must never forget that military service is fundamentally about preparing for and fighting and winning our nation's wars, which is achieved through teamwork and leadership"--Foreword.
