Warrior PATHH: 18 Months of Success
In January 2016, the Marcus Foundation invested $1.05 million to create the first-ever curriculum designed to cultivate and facilitate Posttraumatic Growth. This investment focused on two areas of work: the development of our Warrior PATHH curriculum, inclusive of the Warrior PATHH Instructor Guide, Warrior PATHH Student Guide, Warrior PATHH Journal, Warrior PATHH Syllabus, and Warrior PATHH Schedule of Events; and an 18-month longitudinal program evaluation of four pilot programs, conducted by Drs. Tedeschi and Moore, to assess the effectiveness and impact of Warrior PATHH.
The 18-month program evaluation was completed in January 2019, and the results provide quantitative evidence of what we know to be qualitatively true: Warrior PATHH doesn’t only reduce symptoms substantially; it enables students to live the great lives they deserve here at home. Warrior PATHH unlocks the value of military training and combat experience, and allows combat veterans to be the calm, connected, and congruent leaders desperately needed in their families, communities, and country.

In addition, we created a compilation of articles focused on the need for a new and innovative approach, and op-eds discussing the path forward.
