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:
Single-session presentations to multi-session seminars can be tailored to the needs of your organization.
Wow, superb blog! The web site is fantastic!
I am a minister and have PTSD. My father had PTSD from the Chosen Few Campaign in Korea. I watched him suffer with no help from the VA for years till he was old. It effected me greatly and I found out that I got it from growing up with it. It really interferred with my life until I learned about holistic healing and horticultural therapy. I watched my dad heal himself with plants, animals and spirituality. I am interested in your class and also in finding others with PTSD that would like healing and horticultural therapy on my farm. Please visit our website at gaiascsa.com. I have been trying to reach out to the va and wounded warrior project with no success and need help getting people here to help them.

Thank you for your response, Kathleen, and for reminding us that family members are impacted by PTSD in the home.We’re so glad that you found healing through horticultural therapy. PTSDPerspectives provides education to organizations across the nation. We offer training in medical and mental health settings, in prisons, churches, colleges and universities. If you are interested in having us visit your area to arrange a seminar, please let us know. We have not worked directly with the VA and Wounded Warrior Project.
are there educational seminars available for hospitls
nurses and doctors have poor understanding, response and empathy for ptsd, in particular rape trauma (ptsd for military has been highlighted recently so I am addressing rape trauma, vastly unknown to many).
i think emergency room personnel and general practice physician would be great target for this education.
Yes, we do provide education seminars for hospitals for Continuing Education Credit. We understand that some medical facilities are knowledgeable about trauma-informed care, while others still see it as a military-related issue. In fact, nurses and doctors often struggle with untreated job-related PTSD. We appreciate the opportunity to speak in medical settings.
I would love to have a seminar here and help in any way I can. The animals here seem to know about trauma and we just had a couple from the military with trauma and PTSD. They came here to heal for a month and said that it helped them so much. Their story is worth telling because their are all sorts of traumas that come out of the military for both the men and women. With a combination of therapies you can jump start one’s healing or if they are already aware and seeking help it just enhances and speeds up their recovery.
I would love to talk further with you about how we can help. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Shelly

Kathy, please forgive this very late response. Somehow this email was lost in our website – and I don’t even really know what that means. Please let me know if you have found any help for your grandsons. How are YOU doing? I’ll be waiting to hear from you. With Hope, Wanda from PTSD Perspectives
