About the Film

Working with a team of experienced practitioners and a group of volunteer PTSD-diagnosed vets from Vietnam to the present Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, this historic film records the therapy and follow-up of those individuals who were documented undergoing treatment as well as the hundreds of other volunteer veterans who participated in a national research and testing study - The Iraq Vets Stress Project

Included in the materials to come out of this unprecedented two year journey into the hell and back of PTSD-affected service men and women are a feature length documentary Special; a multi-part broadcast length series; and a DVD training course for practitioners and others working or living with veterans affected by trauma.

A significant goal of the project is to spread awareness of the option to treat PTSD with a low-cost, fast, non-chemical therapy not currently in widespread use in Veterans Administration care facilities while sharing the remarkable healing journeys of the combat veterans and their families and friends featured in this groundbreaking film.

Where there was little or no hope for significant recovery from the effects of complex PTSD, the techniques demonstrated in this pilot project and follow-up provide an irrefutable document of the options and the impact of complimentary therapies at a time when the costs, effectiveness and the ultimate future of hundreds of thousands of returning service people are being compromised.

Screenings and presentations by licenced health care providers and members of this project - including the veterans featured, are available to help build greater understanding and support for assisting active and returning service men and women and their families looking to deal with PTSD.
