Warrior Servants: Living Ideation: A Mental Health Approach (Paperback)
Warrior Servants are those who choose to serve in professions that require great discipline, loyalty, and drive. They come when they are called. They suit up and show up when they are needed. Mental health for Warrior Servants has traditionally been addressed the same way.
The first problem with this approach is mental and emotional injuries aren't very noticeable until they start causing harm to the Warrior Servant in the form of addiction, divorce, suicidal ideation, and chronic traumatic stress. The second problem with this approach to mental health is it assumes that people need fixing. The problem-focused model simply doesn't work because Warrior Servants will always be affected by the job, and, frankly, it is a cynical way to approach things.
Imagine shifting the incident response model of mental health into a pre-incident education model. This ground-breaking book examines how the culture among Warrior Servants can shift towards prioritizing their physical health, mental health, relationships, and normalizing the emotional impacts of the job.
