About the Author

Steven L. Sayers, PhD, is associate professor of psychology in the department of psychiatry at Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. At the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center he is director of the Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment. Sayers has published numerous articles regarding the role of family members and other social supports in mental and physical health.


With more than two decades of experience working with families and veterans, Sayers, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, is well qualified to give advice to spouses and partners of military service members and to veterans on how to avoid the many relationship pitfalls that typically occur after someone comes home from a war zone or any other risky overseas assignment. In this self-help book, he provides clear and useful advice filled with examples of couples who coped and others who didn't. ... All of the advice is well-thought-out and tailored for the unique and complex issues that arise when a loved one returns home from war to peace.

"Coming Back Together provides expert guidance to couples following deployment. Abundant with clinical wisdom and sensitively written, this new resource helps couples navigate the labyrinth of confusing feelings and unexpected obstacles to restoring laughter and intimacy, and the challenges of creating a new family life that reflects the changes and growth in both partners.

"[This book] is a veritable treasure trove of fundamental knowledge essential to restoring or creating a healthy and joyful relationship after the service member returns from deployment. This book promotes understanding and offers step-by-step practical advice that is particularly useful to partners of deployed service members, but that can also be used by both partners collaboratively. It is an essential resource to anyone providing services to military or veteran couples and families."
--Douglas K. Snyder, PhD, professor of psychology at Texas A&M University

"This book is packed with practical wisdom for resuming your lives together after being apart due to military service. With his deep understanding of the issues families face, Sayers explains specific steps for success in reintegration. You can do this, and he will show you how."

Filled with poignant quotes from family members and practical exercises to spark reflection, this resource is certain to bring practical advice and comfort to many families."
