We often think of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as an affliction triggered by war or some other significant trauma. But psychologists today are finding that PTSD can be triggered by something as common as care giving across multiple generations. This week co-hosts Peter Goldsmith and Bill Wood, Social Studies: Voices Across America, look at PTSD and a groundbreaking therapy to treat it.
Dr. George Lindenfeld is researching an aural therapy that can help victims separate reality from the events that gave them the disorder in the first place. This is cutting edge science that’s being discounted by many in the psychology field but Dr. Lindenfeld is having enormous success in his early testing.
The conversation this week was very personal to Peter and Bill. We hope you’ll find it personal to you as well.
One of our goals is to make AgnitusLife a central hub of information that is useful to you — to accumulate ideas and strategies that might be found in other places into one homogeneous whole. The result will be a dynamic information source that is simple, efficient and easy to access.
But we’re not interested in just dishing out the same old stuff. What makes us unique is the diversity of topics we cover, and the fact that the articles you’ll find here you probably won’t find anywhere else. We also target a specific demographic — those who are well-educated and worldly, and still want to explore and create new adventures….
In effect, AgnitusLife is for people who want to celebrate their lives, not just muddle through them. We aim to help those of us who are over 60 to engage life and grow; to use our most valuable resources to the best of our ability; to create a new life we’ve earned from all the hard work we endured in our ‘old lives’. Through the process, we strive to become full-fledged partners with our readers, and hopefully, raise more questions than we can answer.
