Asklepios was the gentle Greek god of healing. Like Christ, he was said to have walked the earth performing miracle cures. His medicine was practiced by priests who interpreted patients' dreams in which the god gave advice. Dr. Tick's classic work explores dream-healing techniques from this ancient tradition.

Edward Tick, Ph.D., is an expert on post-traumatic stress disorder. A practicing psychotherapist for more than 30 years, he is a nationally recognized authority on the psychological, spiritual, historical, and cultural aspects of war in the healing of PTSD. Dr. Tick specializes in transformational work with war veterans, survivors of severe trauma, and all those in need of deep psycho-spiritual healing. Dr. Tick has extensively studied both classical Greek and Native American healing traditions and successfully integrates those methods into his modern clinical practice. A writer, educator, and overseas journey guide, Dr. Tick holds an M.A. in psychology from Goddard College and a Ph.D. in Communication from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is a clinical member and has held various officer positions with the American Academy of Psychotherapists and the American Holistic Medical Association, as well as many other professional organizations. He is also an ordained interfaith minister. Dr. Tick began treating Vietnam veterans in psychotherapy in 1979 before PTSD was a diagnostic category. Since that time, he has treated veterans and survivors of WWII, the Holocaust, Korea, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, Central American conflicts, Lebanon, the Balkan wars, the Irish civil and religious wars, the Greek Civil War, the Middle East conflicts, and the Iraq War, among others. He has also served as a consultant to numerous community, church, and organizations on the treatment of veterans and the training of staff for such work. Dr. Tick's extraordinary work takes him on healing journeys, spiritual tours, lectures, educational classes, and workshops around the globe. He is cofounder of the Sanctuary International Friendship Foundation, a nonprofit agency that directs and raises funds for projects to help heal war-torn Viet Nam. He resides in Albany, New York, where he and his wife Kate Dahlstedt are directors of Sanctuary: A Center for Mentoring the Soul and Soldier?s Heart®, a non-profit program designed to create veterans' safe-return programs in communities across the country. Dr. Tick's last two books are entitled The Golden Tortoise: Viet Nam Journeys and The Practice of Dream Healing: Bringing Ancient Greek Mysteries into Modern Medicine (Quest 2001). His first book, Sacred Mountain: Encounters with the Vietnam Beast, was published in 1989.From Booklist:
The emblem of Asklepios is familiar--two serpents twining around a staff--but few, perhaps, recognize the god's name; fewer, his repertoire of healing techniques. In this engaging study, psychotherapist Tick does more than explain the mind-body medicine of ancient Asklepian doctors. He brings us to the sites associated with the cult, from Pergamum, in present-day Turkey, to the Greek islands and mainland, and even to Rome, describing the way the sites look today and imagining, through the use of ancient texts, what they were like in their heyday. Perhaps the most intriguing is Epidauros, the great theater near Athens, where the catharsis of drama assisted people on their healing journeys. Current explorations of the impact of mental states on physical health have an impressive classical history, Tick contends. A good choice for collections where there is interest in alternative health, the book shows how ancient modern wisdom can be. Patricia Monaghan
