9781613143087: BRAVE, STRONG, AND TRUE: THE MODERN WARRIOR'S BATTLE FOR BALANCE

Brave, Strong, True: The Modern Warrior's Battle for Balance is a practical call to health for America's modern military warriors and those who support them. Right now, what we hear repeatedly about veterans' mental health isn't always positive and is often far from accurate. With a unique blend of personal narratives and current research, author Dr. Kate Hendricks Thomas explores this question: what if we could train America's service members to succeed in mental battles as we do in physical ones? This book unpacks the possibility of mental fitness training programs that bulletproof the psyche and shift the paradigm from treatment to resilience. In an accessible and inspiring way, this Marine-turned-PhD outlines clear strategies - including social support, self care, and spiritual practice - for readers to meet the challenge of living purposeful lives. Her research offers a wealth of knowledge and practical guidance for veterans, their family members, military commands, mental health professionals, and everyday citizens who identify with the title "warrior." Resilience can be trained and cultivated in all of us.

Review:

"Dr. Kate Hendricks Thomas has not written another lament about the problems facing our veterans after more than a decade of war. Instead, this is a reminder that veterans are resilient - and assets to the nation who will strengthen our communities in the years ahead." - Mike Erwin,
Founder and Chairman of Team Red, White, and Blue; CEO of Quiet Leadership Institute

"Combining the latest research on military mental health with deft, authentic storytelling, Kate Hendricks Thomas invites us to think critically about how we typically discuss healing for veterans. She has written a call to action that is both smart and brave." - Harold G. Koenig, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences & Associate Professor of Medicine and Director, of the Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health at Duke University Medical Center

"Kate Hendricks Thomas has a rare gift of being able to blend poignant narratives with scholarly research in a way that brings both the narratives and science to life. She offers a wise, compassionate, and generous voice to the complexities of transitioning home from combat, warrior culture, neurobiology, stigma, balance, and faith." - Charles. W. Hoge, MD, Colonel (Ret.), U.S. Army, author of Once a Warrior, Always a Warrior
