Families Hurt, Families Can Heal—The Power of the Soldier’s Heart Military Families Project
Tuesday, April 26, 2016
“They also serve who only stand and wait.” War creates trauma, wounding not only soldiers themselves, but also their families and communities. Both substance and process addictions are commonly part of the pain. The Soldier’s Heart model of healing, developed by special guest Kate Dahlstedt, M.A., and Edward Tick, Ph.D., is a spiritual, holistic, and community-based healing approach for veterans, families, and communities. Kate shares how this powerful recovery process helps families heal. Kate has a master’s degree in clinical psychology as well as postgraduate certification from the Hartford Family Institute and is a published writer. She founded Soldier’s Heart with her husband and partner Dr. Edward Tick after his book, War and the Soul, was published in 2005. Kate directs the Soldier’s Heart Military Families Project and Athena’s Shield for Women Project. Learn more about her work at soldiersheart.net.
