Please join the University of St. Thomas community as we come together in an effort to increase our understanding of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Over the course of the day there will be breakout sessions on topics related to PTSD, such as an introduction to symptomology, the impact of adverse childhood experiences, evidenced-based interventions, trauma informed assessment, the effects of PTSD on memory and sleep, and the impact of multi-generational trauma on native communities.
- Increase understanding of PTSD symptomology, etiology, prevalence, and treatment methods.
- Evaluate how PTSD impacts social, emotional, occupational, and cognitive functioning in the general population.
- Develop a greater understanding of historical, multi-generational, and racial trauma and their impact on members of marginalized populations.
