Two free webinars on post-traumatic stress from expert Belleruth Naparstek.

The first talk is called Downloading Treatment for Post-traumatic Stress: Digitally Delivered, Evidence-Based Tools for Self-Administered Healing. It goes over the importance and the special benefits of electronic self-help; the techniques that actually help with post-traumatic stress (and which ones can be used as downloads); the various new kinds of platforms and apps, avatars and uploads that are available to help our service members with post-traumatic stress, combat stress and military sexual trauma; and the research showing the effectiveness of guided imagery with this population. It runs a little over an hour.
The second webinar is called Lessons Learned from Treating PTS: Soldiers Teach Therapists about Do’s, Don’t's & Understanding Military Culture and represents what a large and vocal sample of soldiers and Marines taught Naparstek about what they wish therapists would and wouldn’t do, usually after having disappointing experiences with behavioral health.
