Routledge, Feb 11, 2013 - Psychology - 368 pages
Healing War Trauma details a broad range of exciting approaches for healing from the trauma of war. The techniques described in each chapter are designed to complement and supplement cognitive-behavioral treatment protocols—and, ultimately, to help clinicians transcend the limits of those protocols.
For those veterans who do not respond productively to—or who have simply little interest in—office-based, regimented, and symptom-focused treatments, the innovative approaches laid out in Healing War Trauma will inspire and inform both clinicians and veterans as they chart new paths to healing.

Chapter 12, Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) with Alpha-Stim, reads like a PR piece for the manufacturer. Surprise! It was authored by the creator of the device. If this is the quality of the rest of the chapters, this is a bad joke instead of a scientific work.
