During the time of the American Civil War, the term "soldier's heart" was coined to describe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As a modern response to the outpouring of concern for our nation's veterans and the psychological wounds of war, Edward Tick, Ph.D. and Kate Dahlstedt, LMHC, developed the Soldier's Heart organization. Firmly grounded in both current medical research and ancient warrior wisdom of Edward Tick's groundbreaking book, War and the Soul, the Soldier's Heart organization works to address, support and heal the emotional, moral, and spiritual wounds of returning veterans, their families and communities. By developing a new and honorable warrior identity and direct work with veterans, families and community members, Soldier's Heart offers a
comprehensive model of genuine healing and homecoming from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The Soldier's Heart Model facilitates returning warriors and promotes, trains, and guides military, professional and community-based efforts to heal the effects of war. In addition to direct service to veterans, their staff helps educate communities on how to start support services for vets and their families and conducts seminars to train other professionals in the special and unique needs of veterans. Soldier's Heart now has offices in New York, Massachusetts and Vietnam.
Dr. Edward Tick received his master's in psychology from Goddard College, Vermont and his doctorate in communication from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY. Tick has been in private psychotherapy practice since 1975 and began focusing on veteran's issues in 1979. His pioneering work with Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or, in his words, "loss of the soul", is the basis for his book War and the Soul. He continues his healing work with veterans and other trauma survivors with innovative yet time-honored methods. Dr. Tick has extensively studied both classical Greek and Native American traditions and successfully integrates their methods into modern clinical work.
