Learning Objectives:

* The archetype of war and the spiritual experiences that war provides. * How the brain processes and the psyche defends itself in the face of traumatic experiences. * How the unconscious dramatically shapes the unfolding course of a person's life after having faced the moral dilemmas that our current wars create. * War's unconscious effect on our civilian population. * What is needed for true healing. * What you will find in clinical practice and the clinical interventions needed.

Suggested Reading: 'War and the Soul' by Edward Tick, Ph.D.
