Join us for a panel discussion on war-related trauma. Our panelists bring their experience in the Duke Divinity School, Duke Medical Center, the Durham VA, and the US Armed Forces to a discussion that will address questions including:
- How does the way that post-traumatic stress is named and described affect clinical and social responses to veterans, and veterans’ own approaches to healing?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the use of biological models to explain and treat war-related trauma?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the use of moral/spiritual language to understand war-related trauma?
- What does it mean to move forward for those suffering from trauma?
