Housecall for Health: Soldier’s Song Therapy for PTSD
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, can cause depression, anxiety and in some, it can lead to alcohol and chemical dependence. With many that suffer relying on traditional therapy, Army Sergeant Leo Dunson, a soldier diagnosed with the disorder, has been used a different kind of therapy: hip hop.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has story in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
One-in-six Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder last year, and former soldier Leo Dunson is using music to heal.
(Leo Dunson – “War Crimes”) “That’s a war crime, you send me over there in harms way. Then after I done what you said, you turn your back on me.”
Diagnosed with PTSD in 2008, he writes and records rap songs to try and resolve painful feelings from war.
Music treatment is becoming a respected alternative for PTSD.
