THE BOOK ON HEALING AMERICA’S HEROES: Building Trauma Recovery Programs for First Responders & Soldiers


Copyright © 2022 James Hyde

A book geared toward the unspoken epidemic of PTSD caused by trauma.

James Hyde, who has served with the military and the civilian police, offers up examples of how this trauma impacts those who serve and practical ways to assist them in recovering from these events.

Right from the start, James gives you a glimpse of what a life of service means, but also how a peer-¬to-¬peer support group can effectively provide tools to aid their healing from the experiences that come with the job. You are with James as he fights for these programs and volunteers to serve those who sacrifice so much for their country and communities. For soldiers and first responders, James speaks to you because he has been in your shoes.

Testimonial: “Jim Hyde uses his firsthand real-world experience to encapsulate the challenges faced by all first responders and their families. The book is a must-read for coping with the increasing and ever¬changing demands placed on our fire services, law enforcement and emergency medical services.”
