NMSU management professor uses embodied storytelling research to help veterans

From his own military service in Vietnam, David Boje knows that it can be difficult ? sometimes impossible ? for veterans and their families to return to life as they knew it before a combat deployment. The consequences of combat service can include strained relationships with family, divorce, stress disorders, inability to get and keep a job, homelessness ? even suicide.

A management professor in New Mexico State University?s College of Business, Boje is a specialist in storytelling as it applies to organizations, leadership and ethics. He holds the college?s Wells Fargo Professorship and is a distinguished achievement professor and a fellow of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative.

Two of Boje?s current projects are focused on using his research on storytelling ? specifically an approach called embodied restorying process ? to help veterans and their families begin to find empowerment, reflect on their lives and focus on the future.
