Post Traumatic Stress And Our Veterans: A Workshop

Serving our country in battle can be very traumatic for a solider.  A special program tomorrow at Monmouth University will address two of the most common problems faced by returning veterans.

The conference will focus on the symptoms and treatment of post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.  Attendees will walk away with a greater understanding of what they go through and the best way to help treat them.

According to Robin Mama, who heads the School of Social Work at the school says “this program isn’t just for veterans.  Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries affect others as well.  It could be from a tragic or traumatic life event, a war, a natural or man-made disaster – anything really.  This program will be a well rounded look into what to do and how to cope.”

Another component of the session will be a focus on how to properly teach a veteran who may be transitioning back into civilian life.  According to Mama, anyone who does and who suffers from PTS can have great difficulty in doing so.  There are medications, therapies and treatment options so they don’t have to deal with it alone.

The event runs from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.  For more information, visit monmouth.edu/socialwork
