Pain as a Gatekeeper for Combat Trauma

Pain as a Gatekeeper for Combat Trauma is designed for healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and public health providers. It provides information explaining what invisible wounds are often seen by providers, what kind of experiences can lean towards emotional suffering, rehabilitation in regards to current combat Veterans, and how providers can be a gatekeeper for PTSD in combat Veterans. The goal of this course is to provide insight to real stories about the pain and trauma some Veterans have experienced in addition to demonstrating the importance of the role providers play.

    Loved this, it deals with the abstract of living through a transition. It also touches on, somewhat directly, the complexity of living singularly with others.

    Extremely well communicated. This is exceptional even for those that are not professional care givers.

    Thank you Doc! I take care of combat veterans everyday and what you shared is profoundly real and true. This is the deep moral injury that many of our combat veterans know and feel.
