The effects of warfare on our overall society, as well as those who have served and their families, has been substantial over the history of our country, culminating in a crossroads in our time. After thirteen years of prolonged warfare in the global war on terrorism, we are at a point of taking stock as to the costs of war, and effects on our soldiers, our national psyche, and our national institutions. This significant discussion has profound implications for educators, media, clinicians, and those interested in organizational change. Time will be allowed at the end of presentation for questions.
