[Clinical Session Presentation] The purpose of this hermeneutic phenomenological study was to understand contemporary treatment approaches for trauma from the perspective of peacekeepers. Data was collected via one tape?recorded interview with ten contemporary peacekeepers that had been deployed to Somalia, Rwanda, or the former Yugoslavia. The participants were asked to describe their experience with treatment approaches for healing from psychological trauma. Narratives from the transcribed interviews were reviewed with the participants and comments solicited for rigor and verification of meaning. Medications as helping the most; understanding what?s going on and self healing as a journey of discovery emerged from a thematic analysis of the text to understand the ways in which contemporary treatment approaches help peacekeepers heal from trauma. The embodied nature of healing from trauma when caring for contemporary peacekeepers should not be overlooked. Future studies on the efficacy of different treatment modalities for trauma including mind-body complementary therapies are needed.
