Three years ago, I began sharing my story of recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder, along with my friend and co-author Shelly Beach. “Two chicks with a story,” we now call ourselves PTSDPerspectives.org and have the privilege of consulting with professional, medical, mental health, and faith-based organizations across the nation.
Does your medical, mental health, or professional community serve the ever-growing population of people suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? According to the Sidran Institute, an estimated 8% of the U.S. general population suffers from PTSD at any given time. In inner-city or economically-challenged populations, that number skyrockets.
Do you work with children within counseling, adoption, foster-care, law-enforcement, or faith communities and are looking for relevant and dynamic continuing education opportunities that will help you better understand those who have been abused?
PTSD Perspectives offers continuing education credit, as well as educational seminars and inspirational presentations for those within the following fields:
- mental health
- social work
- foster care
- child advocacy
- chaplaincy and spiritual care
- education, in a variety of settings from high school to graduate studies in mental health, counseling, and other caring professions
- law enforcement, including the legal profession and those working within the prison system
Single-session presentations to multi-session seminars can be tailored to the needs of your organization.
