dc.description.abstractThis article offers an overview of how drama-based work has responded to the needs of military veterans returning from war. The article briefly traces how conditions such as 'combat stress' and 'shell shock' in World War I have evolved into clinically accepted terms such as Post-Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of the Vietnam War. The implication of these contexts will then be considered in relation to the current generation of military personnel, specifically those from Australia and New Zealand. The article assesses the first stages of Young Diggers, a support website for veterans and their families. Currently, it is one of the few forums where serving and ex-military personnel can seek independent advice and guidance. The article outlines how digital storytelling will be used as a component of the website to help develop a creative online space that enhances engagement and communication with veteran communities.en_US
