Healing the Wounded Heart: Alternative Treatment for PTSD

For over a year now, Dr. Allen Roland has been working with veterans with PTSD in Northern California using his heart centered Healing the Wounded Heart therapy workshops and has experienced impressive results. Roland explains that after completing the eight week workshop, participants experience on average, a 58% symptom improvement.

“The purpose of the Healing the Wounded Heart Workshops is to penetrate the grey zone of guilt, aloneness and unworthiness, that many War Veterans diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) experience, and this is done within a supportive group setting through heart centered self exploration, group sharing, guided visualization and action oriented homework ~ where love and joy eventually overcome fear and separation.”

Dr. Roland hopes the VA will begin funding this alternative treatment method. He explains,

“If combat veterans are responding positively to these once a week eight week action oriented heart centered workshops ~ it’s time for the VA to open the door to alternative healing methodologies which the rest of the country is already acknowledging, supporting and experiencing.
