Many of the returning Iraq veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition that makes it difficult for them to hold a steady job, have intimacy in relationships, or do any kind of creative work. In war’s overwhelming violence, the soul suffers greatly. Based on his Quest book by the same title, psychotherapist Ed Tick suggests that modern warfare destroys the soul, a perspective that leads him to believe that PTSD is an identity disorder, a true soul affliction, and not just an anxiety disorder. 2005. 86 minutes.
