Hi Morganator, I think that's because it is a meds board.

Did you read the link to the NYT Vet's treatment?

Of course, that doesn't address childhood developmental issues, or even birth trauma. It does give an example, however, of a failure to address the whole person, and to back away from 'yucky' issues. To aptly treat a war trauma, one might have to actually entertain the possibility that there is something 'wrong' or really god-afully terrible about combat. Now that'd be a big switcher-roo for an army psych. I can see someone writing some sort of 'equus'-like play about that one.

And as far as dealing with what can appear to be a personal holocaust in a patient; well, it is much easier to prescribe a pill.

I like to remind myself that one size does not fit all.
