NIH Mental Health Series: Trauma (Individual and Group), hosted by the NIH OITE
The experience of individual, community, and systematic trauma can profoundly impact daily life. Though we have begun to speak more about this issue in recent years, the definition and impact of individual and collective trauma can still feel overwhelming and challenging to fully understand. This talk seeks to provide clarity by defining trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and clearly explaining its impact on individuals and the community with a focus on specific stressors and challenges unique to the biomedical field. Importantly, the webinar provides strategies and tools to support oneself and others who have experienced trauma.
