Summary
A psychiatric disorder, PTSD generally follows life-threatening events like natural disasters, terrorist incidents, and military combat. Unfortunately, many PTSD victims don't realize what afflicts them. This program expands awareness and knowledge of the disorder and explores the latest treatment options available today. In an illuminating case study, a Vietnam veteran who developed PTSD after his tour of duty explains how the condition destroyed his personal life and forced him into bankruptcy before he found relief through Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Glenn Schiraldi of the University of Maryland and Terry Luper of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The effect of PTSD on older veterans is a featured topic
