Post-Traumatic Stress in the Military: Honoring Those Who Serve
This presentation will provide a historical overview of military trauma and provide current clinical updates and statistics for those affected by wartime stress. Although PTSD has different origins, this presentation is also applicable for those who treat non-military patients. Attendees will hear about the latest treatment modalities, evidenced-based approaches, and interventions. They will understand the role of integrated care and its impact on the healing process. We will also focus on the positive impact that family involvement has in recovery.
As a result of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- List three trauma-related therapies that are evidenced-based
- Define three integrative therapies that assist in the treatment of trauma
- Explain the role that medication plays in treating trauma
- Explain the role of family members and their involvement in providing support for their loved one, in addition to their own self-care
