Action 38

I use creative and expressive techniques to process my feelings like one on one conversations with my Battle Buddies when I am fishing/hunting, working on my car, writing in my personal diary, playing my guitar, going dancing, engaging in various “healing” rituals.

Useful Information

The Greeks used theater as a means to help individuals address the feelings accompanying traumas such as combat. This type of “community catharsis experience” is now being employed by the military in their Theatre of War Program (theaterofwar.com), so service members and their family members can better understand the impact of military experiences and destigmatize help-seeking. As has been observed, “The more things change, the more they remain the same.”
