Feb. 16: National Symposium on Combat Stress Injuries

From Newswire Services:

The National Veterans Foundation has announced that it will co-sponsor the 2nd Annual “National Symposium on Combat Stress Injuries: Addressing the Challenges, Explaining the Solutions, and Managing the Injuries,” on February 16th at the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee. [current schedule]

Hosted by the Florida State Traumatology Institute, the symposium is designed to encourage wider understanding about the barriers to care and proven treatment models for veterans dealing with emotional and psychological scars, and to foster greater collaboration between the military, private clinicians, academics, and veterans service providers----each of whom play a vital role in helping warfighters recover and thrive after their combat experiences.

Well over a dozen of the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in the field of military mental health will present research findings at this year’s event---including FSU Traumatology Institute Director Dr. Charles Figley, Marine Corps Operational Stress Control and Readiness (OSCAR) Program Director Captain William Nash, the University of Tel Aviv’s award winning PTSD researcher Dr. Zahava Solomon, and University of Southern California’s virtual reality innovator Professor Skip Rizzo.

Topics ranging from the military’s role in detection and management of mental health problems on the battlefield, who, why and when certain soldiers are affected, the use of innovative virtual reality tools in treating PTSD, Post-Deployment Health Assessment for military personnel, secondary trauma in the children of veterans, the effect of PTSD on veterans who commit criminal acts, treatment models for veterans suffering from combat stress injury , and the unique challenges facing deployed citizen soldiers—guardsman and reservists, will all be covered during this day long event.
