Recent military conflicts have been associated with high levels of both post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). These two conditions have overlapping symptoms and can be experienced simultaneously, which sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish between them – and they have profound impacts on one’s life. In this webinar, Dr. Keith Renshaw, a licensed psychologist and Professor of Psychology at George Mason University, will speak with Matthew Hoh, a Marine Corps combat veteran of the Iraq War who is 100% disabled with PTSD, TBI, and other related diagnoses. They will review common symptoms of these conditions and offer resources, and Captain (Ret) Hoh will discuss his own personal experiences, including elements of his own path toward recovery. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A from attendees.
