Lexington Community Education presents: War and the Soul: A Soldier's Heart-An Evening with Edward Tick, PhD
During the time of the American Civil War, the term "soldier's heart" was coined to describe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As a modern response to the outpouring of concern for our nation's veterans and the psychological wounds of war, Edward Tick, Ph.D. and Kate Dahlstedt, LMHC, developed the Soldier's Heart organization.
Firmly grounded in both current medical research and ancient warrior wisdom of Edward Tick's groundbreaking book, War and the Soul, the Soldier's Heart organization works to address, support and heal the emotional, moral, and spiritual wounds of returning veterans, their families and communities. Soldier's Heart offers a comprehensive model of genuine healing and homecoming from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Dr. Edward Tick received his master's in psychology from Goddard College, Vermont and his doctorate in communication from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY. Tick has been in private psychotherapy practice since 1975 and began focusing on veteran's issues in 1979. His pioneering work with Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or, in his words, "loss of the soul", is the basis for his book War and the Soul. Dr. Tick has extensively studied both classical Greek and Native American traditions and successfully integrates their methods into modern clinical work.

More About Lexington Depot
The Lexington Depot was built in 1847 and was recently renovated. It is operated by the Lexington Historical Society. It used to be the train station for the line that ran to and from Boston. The path of the line itself is now the Minuteman Bikeway. The Depot is not open to the public, but can be rented for private functions of up to 100 people. Contact the society for more information. There is also a town-operated parking lot located behind the building, which can be used for event parking.
