Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in the Military ??? A Different Approach.Janine Regan-Sinclair


Janine Regan-Sinclair

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a silent psychological wound and is a major problem for veterans and active servicemen and women alike. The sufferer battles with a sense of identity loss that can leave them angry, depressed, emotionally imbalanced and often empty inside. With an average of 20 veterans committing suicide daily, there is room for improvement in the way treatment is offered to them (Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs, 2016). In a digital world, we need to move with the times and offer digital therapy, so easy to access that victim need only pick up their cell phone to help themselves. Conventional treatment methods focus on the mind-body connection, which is only a part of the solution; a critical factor in healing PTSD is the damage caused to the human spirit or psyche, which is described in this paper as ‘soul fragmentation’. This is where the saying ‘beside myself’ comes from, as victims often feel a sense of disassociation or feeling like they are disorientated in some way even though they are still functioning; therefore, a new approach needs to be taken if we are to recover the victim’s missing identity. This paper explains a new treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, incorporating the new science on the block, ‘The Science of Consciousness’.
