Pt.4 - Dave Grossman- Survivor's Guilt, PTSD, & Transitions



Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (retired) is the author of a dozen books including best seller 'On Killing' and 'On Combat', dealing with the psychological effects of killing and war on soldiers. Grossman was a Professor of Psychology at West Point, a former infantryman, paratrooper, and graduate of the Army's Ranger School. Grossman stands alongside men such as Massad Ayoob, Jeff Cooper, and John Farnham, as a person who has begun conversations and helped laid the groundwork that the modern science of lethal force encounters rests on. In this video, Grossman discusses the suicide rate of veterans of 22 per day and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Grossman also speaks to the reintegration of transitioning soldiers, survivor's guilt, and coping mechanisms, and widens the scope to not only the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also Vietnam and World War II.
