Trauma in the Context of War and Peace

Event, Collaboration Project Initiative Event, Film Screening


Soldier CryingThis conference will feature a panel discussion among Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies alumni who serve in the U.S. military and faculty members from the Institute and the School of Social Work in response to the screening of the documentary Wartorn 1861–2010.

The panel will debate a wide range of psychological aspects in regard to the trauma of war and combat, with emphasis on their clinical applicability. Afterward, the discussion will be broadened to include the audience in talking about larger issues of peace and war. The discussion will be followed by jointly led student/panelist breakout sessions. The conference will expose students to the difficult issues of war trauma and offer clinical guidelines to address them.

This event is for graduate students.
