Research shows that public safety personnel (PSP) are more likely to experience posttraumtic stress disorder (PTSD) than members the general public. But what exactly is PTSD? What causes it and how can it be treated?
In this crash course Clinical Psychologist Dr. Megan McElheran will answer PTSD questions like:
– What are the symptoms?
– How do you get PTSD? Is it from one incident or can it happen after years working as a PSP?
– Is PTSD always like you see on TV?
– How do I recognize the symptoms in others?
– What kind of treatments are available?
Join us to find out the answers to these questions and have a chance to ask some of your own as we explore the facts on PTSD.
Presenter: Dr. Megan McElheran, Wayfound Mental Health Group, Chair of CIPSRT’s clinical sub-committee.
