FROM THE BATTLEFIELD TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Getting Back to Normal

Dr. Bart Billings has served in the U.S. Army for approximately 34 years, both as an Enlisted Combat Engineer and a Medical Service Corps Officer. He has treated and educated tens of thousands of veterans as a clinical psychologist in the military and civilian private practice. He was the Chief of Professional Services and the Assistant Director at the University of California, Davis Teaching Hospital's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department, was the Commanding Officer for a Army Reserve General Hospital Section, has served on the Palomar College Heroes Education Board and has served on the California Governors Advisory Board at Patton State Hospital. He is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, holds a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist and is the Director and Founder (started it while in the military 22 years ago) of the longest running, now civilian, Combat Stress Conference on the planet (International Military And Civilian Combat Stress Conference). He has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, including ABC's Night Line, U.S. News and World Report, HBO's Vice News Program, etc.  and despite a successful career, spanning nearly 48 years, where most other would welcome retirement, he has chosen to begin an especially sacrilegious path of exposing problems within his own field of mental health by writing this incredible book.
