520 When a partner or spouse returns from war, it is a time of
joy; but it is also a time of transition, challenges, and
uncertainty. The truth is that the process of
reintegration can last for years, and it can be a
particularly difficult time for both returning heroes and
their families. If your partner has recently returned
from war, or if they will be returning soon, you should be
prepared for the unique challenges that lay ahead. Your
loved one may suffer from psychological and physical
wounds, experience “battlemind,” a condition that leaves
them constantly anxious and on-edge, and they may even
have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If they are
uncommunicative, you may feel like you are living with a
stranger, and struggle to recreate the bond of intimacy
you once shared. In Coming Back Together, clinical
psychologist Steven L. Sayers offers real tools to help
you reestablish family routines and build a stronger sense
of intimacy with your partner after a military deployment,
even if they are resistant to help. The challenges of
reintegration can come as a surprise, but you can arm
yourself with the skills needed to face this difficult
time and help your partner build the resilience needed to
heal. This book will be your guide.
