Hi All,

I'd like to begin a discussion about these fellows. If you don't know what I am talking about, check here: smh.com.au

From a psych POV, what will life be like for these guys when they return home? How will they fit back in with their families? What role will psychologists play in helping them and their families? What help will they need?

My thought is that their rehab will possibly be very similar in some ways to soldiers returning from war zones. They band with their mates well, but don't or can't share experiences with their families, who can feel quite on the outer.

But what has motivated them to stay as strong as they did? What techniques would the psych have used?

Thoughts? Lets have a discussion - there are all too few of them on here lately.
