Chapter 7: Coping with Trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Life's End: Managing Life Review

Ryan Wellerconsiders the impact of prior trauma on end-of-life care. Often at the end of life, clients engage in a life review, developing a coherent story of their life that reaffirms the meaningfulness of their existence. For those in combat, this life review can open old wounds, reminding them of traumatic events that caused spiritual or moral distress. Sometimes it may lead to the reemergence of the symptomatology of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Weller offers both sound guidance on sensitively navigating life review and the need for end-of-life organizations treating veterans to be aware of the symptoms and resources for treating PTSD.
