WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® services (WHI) are a three day retreat for war-zone veterans who may be suffering in varying degrees of post-trauma stress and moral/soul injury. The format is to assist veterans (and spouses) to accomplish essential spiritual and emotional healing from combat related post-traumatic stress (PTS) as a complement to medical, psychiatric and social services already in place — assuring them of a welcoming and safe place. The program is geared to help every participant know and experience that they are “welcomed home” in every sense. The WHI Program comprises of a series of talks designed to give an overview of healing PTS and moral injury, including:
- Resources for coping and recovery
- Healing of memories
- The importance of telling your story and how to do so effectively
- Impact of post-trauma stress upon family and other close relationships.
