- “…Hopefully I will be the contact person for training in the future and we can keep the momentum going. Thank you for another great training experience. You are truly the best in the business.” Current Major Airline Captain, April 27, 2012
Fear of Flight Testimonials
- “I have been off from flying since April 1st due to an incident that had happened to me on the aircraft. Without going through a lot of details I have been seeing a therapist each week and a psychiatrist each month until I went to see Tania in August. At that time I did not feel like I was making the progress that I should and she was suggested to me through CISM. At that point I had nothing to loose so I went through the session and had my first flight last week and made it through without having a panic attack. I feel as if this program has worked for me and would suggest it to others with similar issues.” Current Commercial Airline Flight Attendant #1 — November 2011
- “I am writing this testimonial because this is something near and dear to my heart. I have personally experienced PTSD due to an (in flight) incident that happened to me in 2009. I did not know what was going on with me at the time it took me a year to the day to finally get some help, as I was having an extremely difficult time working, and saying that I love my job, my company and the people I have the pleasure to work with. … The procedure she did helped me so much, she explained to me why I was having these problems, and after seeing Dr. Glenn I no longer had that pit in the bottom of my stomach, I felt so much better. PTSD is a very difficult condition that leaves the person not knowing what is happening to them, with Dr. Glenn help I was able to get the relief I needed. I can not honestly say that my PTSD won’t rear its ugly head again but I can say I do know where to get help if I need it.” Current Commercial Airline Flight Attendant #2 — December 2011

PTSD & Our Veterans: Recognizing Battlefield Trauma
On October 09, 2013, Tania Glenn provided an interview on Changing Direction Radio with Michele F Rosenthal. During the interview Tania addressed with Michele, “There is no question that more and more of our military and veterans are suffering from PTSD both on and off the battlefield. Upon returning home, the signs and symptoms of PTSD may not be recognized. Even when it is, many times our veterans and their families find themselves lost, without support, and not understanding how to move past their trauma.” As the show’s guest, Tania provided information that may just do the trick. Below is the link to the radio show and introduction to that interview. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/michelerosenthal/2013/10/09/ptsd-our-veterans-recognizing-battlefield-trauma

- Tania Glenn responded to the terrorists’ attacks at the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 and to Ground Zero in New York City in 2001, as a first responder and licensed clinician.

Between Iraq and A Hard Place
Pratt Bros Entertainment, LLC, a Rex J. Pratt 2006 Film In 2006 Pratt Bros Entertainment, LLC released a feature length documentary “Between Iraq and A Hard Place — America’s Heroes Return Home.” It is a documentary not about war but those who fight. A Rex J. Pratt film Narrated by Martin Sheen Medical Advisors Dr. Robert Bray and Dr. Tania Glenn Featuring U.S. Marines in March 2003 on the first day of Iraqi Freedom
What happens when a young man or woman goes to war and sees death, killing, and tragedy and experiences fear on a daily basis? Do they return home the same? Of course not. Can the changes be reversed, altered or the effects reduced? We hope so. Are we doing enough as a Country and people to help our returning troops heal in body, mind and spirit? The answer is not clear but emerging information would lead us to believe that more can and needs to be done. Much more.
Between Iraq and A Hard Place explores these questions from the perspective of the troops who need this help. If we can understand what our sons and daughters of war feel and fear, we can better know how to help them.
Lance Corporal Luke Smentkowski of the USMC had the forethought on the first day of the Iraq invasion to turn on a small hand held tape recorder. What he captured on tape is powerful and thought provoking. This recording was the impetus for Between Iraq and A Hard Place. Along with segments of this recording, the film contains personal video footage and still pictures of the Marines who are the subject of this documentary. This unfiltered footage provides an up close and personal look at daily life in war. The viewer will feel as though they have been given a private look into the lives of these ordinary soldiers who have performed extraordinary acts of bravery in the name of God and Country.
If you watch this film you will learn about true brotherhood, courage, commitment, kindness amid chaos and what honor means to a Marine of the United States of America. You will never look at a Marine the same after you see Between Iraq and A Hard Place.
