It doesn't seem to work. I don't care what the therapy person says. It's a bad idea. I had a few guys come out to the field I work at that had seen some extensive combat (according to his friends). Long story short, the guy had a severe mental breakdown on the field.
Interesting discussion on this forum regarding this video. After vetting this video with 2 other professional trauma counselors before posting, it is interesting to hear about first hand experiences.
What I do know from those whom I vetted this with, you cant just show up on a field with PTSD and expect it to be a silver bullet and heal all your ills. Not only is that just silly...it dangerous.
It has to be part of immersion therapy plan - meaning you work your way up to it and you have follow up afterwards.
Therapy is like a medical treatment, while one operation or therapy works for some people, there is never one way to cure all people.
Do you know if the the guys who showed up at your field, just showed up. Or did they have an immersion therapy plan backed up with a professional counselor?
