PTSD, Causes, Coping and Cures

More than 13 million Americans have PTSD at any given time. Charles Burckhardt, a former detective in the Philadelphia Police Department and Vietnam veteran, and Tim Wynn, a student at the College and a veterans certified forensic peer specialist in Philadelphia, will discuss the changes to brain functions that occur due to trauma, the ways that the sufferer can cope and the tools that are used to aid veterans who have been incarcerated in the hopes of reducing their reincarceration rates. This presentation will highlight the most effective therapies, such as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).
