Line in the Sand: A life-changing journey through a body and a mind after trauma

Line in the Sand is a raw, gritty account of Dean Yate’s seven-year odyssey to find the best ways to treat his PTSD and moral injury and reconnect with his family.

About the book:

Dean Yates was the ideal warzone correspondent: courageous,
compassionate, dedicated. After years of facing the worst, though, including
the Bali bombings and the Boxing Day tsunami, one final incident undid him
In July 2007, two of his staff members were brutally gunned down
by an American helicopter in Iraq.

What followed was an unravelling of everything Dean thought he knew
of himself. His PTSD was compounded by his moral wound – the devastation of
what he thought he knew of the world and his own character and beliefs.
After years of treatment, including several stints inside a psychiatric facility,

Dean has reshaped his view of the true meaning of life.

Here, in all its guts and glory, is that journey to a better way of being.
