 Abstract: The following thesis evolves around a reevaluation and rethinking of therapeutic treatments to Danish soldiers returning from war zones. In the last two decades Denmark has increased its military engagement and has deployed soldiers worldwide to provide a safe and secure environments but also leaving them exposed to traumatic events. Psychology enters this picture, as 2-24 % of soldiers return from their deployment with PTSD, while other soldiers return with anxiety or depression. In order to encapsulate these soldiers and their diagnoses; this thesis reformulates the classical war-diagnosis PTSD to the psychological term “trauma reactions”. This reformulation was also necessary due to two therapies, which the thesis combines: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. Hence their roots lie in two different paradigms: positivism and social constructionism.

In the combination of the two therapies, the thesis focuses on the most valuable and useful psychotherapeutic tools for treating trauma reactions among Danish soldiers. The thesis finds that some therapeutic tools are similar in purpose but different in form and therefore might be best suited for a combination to match as many soldiers with trauma reactions as possible. To develop a suitable and precise treatment for Danish soldiers, the thesis rests on two solid empirical scientific projects: one by the Military Psychological Department called USPER and one by SFI, The Danish National Centre for Social Research called Danish Returning Soldiers. These two empirical projects include more than 26,000 soldiers and their families to create a strong base for the rethinking of the optimal psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma reactions.

Throughout the thesis I compare, analyze and discuss the therapeutic tools and interventions as well as the empirical research. At the end I present the rethought therapeutic offer and discuss its usefulness and implications. In the rethought section, elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy’s third wave therapy ACT appear. This is the due the possibility of ACT being a moderator in some ways between social constructionism and positivism.

The thesis is concluded by a perspective on screening for resilience through a solution-focused therapeutic mindset.
