“Dr. Hatanaka's exhaustive research and analysis have resulted in a book that should be an essential tool for those professionals who are assisting our soldiers having difficulties adjusting to life after the stress of service in a war zone. Likewise, soldiers, their families, and their friends experiencing difficulties understanding their own feelings and frustrations would benefit from taking the time to read this practical toolbox of ideas.”--Lewis MacKenzie, CM, OOnt, MSC and Bar, CD Major-General (Ret'd)Jan Hatanaka, PhD, is the founder of Grief Reconciliation International Inc.
