Register for June 10th Workshop on Treatment for PTSD
Join us on June 10 for an online workshop
What We Know About Treatment for PTSD and the Promise of Equine Assisted Therapy
June is PTSD Awareness Month and as part of VOICES Pathways to Resilience Programs we are highlighting unique strategies and effective treatments to promote healing. PTSD and anxiety are at an all-time high due to the pandemic, and are among the top 10 diagnosed conditions among individuals in treatment at the World Trade Center Health Clinical Centers.
Join us for an informative presentation by distinguished researchers, Dr. Yuval Neria and Dr. Prudence Fisher who will share their extensive expertise in the treatment of trauma and PTSD. Dr. Neria will speak about PTSD as a diagnosis and discuss commonly used treatments in terms of their effectiveness. He will also demonstrate his fascinating findings of efficacy using neuroimaging. Dr. Fisher will then describe the development of protocols by their team for group equine assisted therapy, and how it was evaluated in a large sample of veterans with PTSD.
PTSD is a treatable disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event such as a natural disaster, war, terrorist act, or serious accident. The condition can last months, or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions. This presentation provides a rare opportunity to hear from leading experts who have conducted research and authored hundreds of articles focused on the mental health consequences and treatment protocols for exposure to trauma.
The online workshop is free, and registration is required.
This workshop will be followed by Discovering Inner Strength through the Wisdom of a Horse on Thursday, June 17th at 1pm.
