About this book

This book provides an in-depth look at the complex clinical, individual, and organizational challenges that our clinicians face in treating our returning soldiers struggling with the aftermath of more than a decade of war.  The author explores the confluence of factors that make this time in history a perfect storm for military mental health providers. The signature wounds of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars weave a tapestry of emotional turmoil with diffuse brain injury difficulties that challenge the very best clinicians under the best conditions. The author targets different pieces of the puzzle including the prevalence of secondary trauma and burnout, the organizational factors that promote negative clinician well-being, the creation and evaluation of an online social media based intervention for burnout, and a critical review of peer coaching.

Reviews

“This book is a comprehensive reference for addressing  STS and burnout problems that must not be ignored.  The conclusions, supported by facts and proven in tests are very important to the health and well-being of those providing care, which ultimately benefits those patients who need their care.  Never before have we seen the volume of patients needing treatment for the ‘invisible wounds’ of war.  And consequently, STS and burnout are bigger problems than they have ever been before.  I highly recommend that hospital administrators and leaders read this book and ask yourselves, ‘Are we taking care of our people and providing the best possible treatment for those in need?’” (Ed Anderson, Lieutenant General, US Army Retired)
