Description


Transitioning out of high-intensity occupations, such as military and first responder roles, is often a challenging and stressful experience marked by a profound loss of identity, purpose, and motivation. Dr. Dan Pronk, a former army special operations doctor, faced these difficulties after leaving the military, exposing him to symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress resulting from unprocessed combat experiences. Dissatisfied with his initial interaction with a psych-ologist, Dan delved into the psychology of transition, documenting his observations and lessons in this book.Presented in an accessible style with anecdotes and humour, this book serves as a guide for individuals navigating the complex journey from high-stakes professions to thriving civilian life. Drawing on his own experiences, Dan offers insights to help formulate a plan for a successful post-transition adaptation.Dan's background includes a diverse journey from a chubby kid in Australia to passing SAS selection, serving as a doctor in army special operations with multiple tours in Afghanistan, and earning a decoration for his actions in combat. Post-military, he completed an MBA and has authored or co-authored multiple best-selling books including 'The Combat Doctor' and 'The Resilience Shield'. Dan remains active in tactical medicine, serving as a consultant to military and police tactical groups and co-owning the private company TacMed Australia. Residing in South Australia, he balances family and work lives with a passion for vintage sports cars.This book not only shares Dan's personal story but provides valuable insights and strategies for those undergoing a similar journey of reintegration into civilian life after intense occupational experiences.
