'Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Beyond'
All members of the University community are invited to attend the Department of Psychology's next colloquium on Friday, Nov. 30, at 1:30 p.m. in East Hall 220.
The topic will be "Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Beyond," featuring J. Cobb Scott, assistant professor at Yale University and a researcher at the Veterans’ Administration Clinical Neurosciences Division.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been described as the signature injuries of veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In this talk, participants will learn about the scope of these problems and the symptoms, assessment methods, and current available treatments for these two disorders.
Scott will also discuss current research being conducted at the Yale/VA Clinical Neurosciences Division for the National Center for PTSD that attempts to understand these disorders and their impact on veterans and current service members.
