Trauma Comes Home | The Third Documentary in the Series
Invisible Scars, 2014
The first release by Crosswinds / Front Porch Media broke new ground by beginning a discussion about Post-Traumatic Stress and the invisible wounds of deployment.
Featuring interviews with warriors, political leaders, and professional therapists, the documentary focused attention on what was then a little-discussed (yet prevalently experienced) topic.
Focus: Moral Injury
Honoring the Code, 2017
While creating the first documentary, our team continued hearing professionals discuss something that "looked like" PTSD but wasn't PTSD. We learned of a second "invisible scar" known as Moral Injury.
Whereas PTSD is a response to external threats (mortar fire, dangerous situations, past events), Moral Injury is a response to internal threats. It manifests as guilt, shame, survivor's guilt, feelings of worthlessness and despair.
Finding a path forward, towards healing, was the focus on this film.
Focus: The Family
Trauma Comes Home, 2023
Whereas the first two documentaries focused primarily on the warrior's experience, the third release affirms that when one family member is affected, everyone is...
And, to find healing, the needs of the entire family unit-- whatever that group looks like-- must be acknowledged and addressed.
