Sheppard Pratt is pleased to present the 2019 Trauma Workshop Series.
On Friday, September 6, join us for "PTSD, Suicide, TBI, DSM-5 and Other Trauma Disorders: Complex Clinical Decisions," presented by Robert J. Ursano, MD, Clinical Psychologist and Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience Director at the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress in Bethesda, MD.
About this lecture:
Understanding trauma and its association with various outcomes is important to a trauma informed care system. Trauma is part of everyday life and disaster and its effects span the developmental life course. Particular attention to military and disaster populations can inform us in diagnosis and identification of critical issues of risk and protective factors. Most recently, research in military populations has spurred the interest nationally in Suicide, PTSD and TBI. This presentation will address what we have learned in these areas that can inform all care.
After attending this lecture, clinicians will be able to:
- Identify common responses to traumatic events.
- Compare suicides or suicide attempts in the USA to other countries.
- Discuss the commonality of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
The trauma workshops are appropriate for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
