Sinopsis:

Based on actual events during Israel’s wars, Dr. Ari DeLevie’s novel describes in vivid detail twelve group therapy sessions with eight war veterans. Each of these young men—some single, others married, some already fathers—has his own unique story, and they all suffer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their symptoms span the entire range, including avoidance behaviors, startle reactions to noises, nightmares, flashbacks, and irritability. Some are unable to make friends or any social connections whatsoever. All agree that they are no longer who they used to be.

Get to know Ron, Sergei, Avi, Uri, Ido, Yariv, Yossi, and Gil. Your heart will go out to them, as they express their struggles and experiences. And you’ll root for their recovery during the therapeutic methods they undergo that are designed to alleviate their suffering. Though it is set in Israel, their stories and circumstances apply to soldiers and their loved ones in any country touched by war.

“The treatment of PTSD is complex and difficult,” writes Dr. Ofir Levi, lieutenant colonel and director of the Israel Defense Forces’ Unit for Combat Reactions. “This book, based on the rich experience of the author...offers a unique and substantial contribution.”
