Individual and Community Trauma

The trauma of all kinds has a far-reaching impact on individuals and communities around the world. Interceding before trauma turns becomes more damaging is essential in maintaining the mental health of people and groups impacted by things such as violence, natural disasters, and public health emergencies like COVID-19. This has been a major project for decades of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress at Uniformed Services University. Dr Joshua Morganstein talks us through this work at a session at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association titled Individual and Community Trauma: Impact, Risk, and Interventions (Sunday, May 02, 2021 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM).
