The following is a listing of events that might be of interest to those in Public Health.
It’s in the workplace! Join your colleagues in an enlightened information sharing and interactive discussion about post-traumatic stress signs and symptoms among your employees. Do you know/realize that there are many underlying causes of post-traumatic stress, including military service, and that PTS isn’t limited to service related trauma?
If you have employees that had a difficult childbirth experience, who have ever been in a car accident, who may have grown up in a dysfunctional family, were bullied on the job or picked on at school as a child or have been sexually assaulted, then this workshop is important to you and your employer.
Our panel of experts includes John Langevin, PhD, Director of Counseling Services, University of New England; Dr. Fred Shotz, a Falmouth naturopathic physician, and Roy Driver, M.S., LCPC, retired, formally the Director of the Lewiston/Auburn Vet Center.
Seminar objective: The seminar will answer your questions about the physiology of PTS, help you recognize the signs and/or symptoms of the disorder, learn about treatment modalities and identify local resources for assisting employees and their families.
