Emotional Memories, PTSD, Dementia: An Exploration of Brain Health and Trauma

November 2 @ 8:30 am 12:00 pm EDT

Location: The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights, 21 Clark Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

3 free CE credits available for Licensed Social Workers (excluding New Jersey) & Certified Case Managers. 

Veterans Day is a time to commemorate those who have served their country. Many who experienced combat have traumatic brain injury (TBI) and long-term psychological effects such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These veterans are now older adults, and some have developed dementia. This event will share vital information on, resources, services and non-pharmacological approaches that offers the level of support our veterans so very much deserve.

From this event you will be able to:

1. Name essential resources and services for veterans

2. Define non-pharmacological interventions to support veterans and those experiencing traumatic memories

    3. Explain the impact of chronic stress, TBI, and PTSD on brain health

    4. Develop a foundational understanding of emotional memories for those living with dementia

    5. Describe the bi-directional relationship between PTSD and dementia.
