The combination of comorbid metal illnesses, sometimes concurrent with physical wounds and TBI, leads to several unfortunate and progressively worsening situations for veterans who return to the community. These situations include unstable family life, divorce, inability to gain or hold employment, impaired social relationships, suicidal behavior, violence and aggression, substance abuse, crime and more.
This program educates clinicians on the latest treatment strategies for returning veterans who suffer from PTSD and TBI. It focuses on effective screening and diagnosis, as well as psychotherapeutic, psychosocial, and pharmacologic interventions for a variety of disorders and behaviors, including suicidality, depression, insomnia anxiety and more.
