Neural correlates of exposure to traumatic pictures and sound in Vietnam combat veterans with and without posttraumatic stress disorder: a positron emission tomography study. (1/187)

BACKGROUND: Patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) show a reliable increase in PTSD symptoms and physiological reactivity following exposure to traumatic pictures and sounds. In this study neural correlates of exposure to traumatic pictures and sounds were measured in PTSD. METHODS: Positron emission tomography and H2[15O] were used to measure cerebral blood flow during exposure to combat-related and neutral pictures and sounds in Vietnam combat veterans with and without PTSD. RESULTS: Exposure to traumatic material in PTSD (but not non-PTSD) subjects resulted in a decrease in blood flow in medial prefrontal cortex (area 25), an area postulated to play a role in emotion through inhibition of amygdala responsiveness. Non-PTSD subjects activated anterior cingulate (area 24) to a greater degree than PTSD patients. There were also differences in cerebral blood flow response in areas involved in memory and visuospatial processing (and by extension response to threat), including posterior cingulate (area 23), precentral (motor) and inferior parietal cortex, and lingual gyrus. There was a pattern of increases in PTSD and decreases in non-PTSD subjects in these areas. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that functional alternations in specific cortical and subcortical brain areas involved in memory, visuospatial processing, and emotion underlie the symptoms of patients with PTSD.  (+info)

Countertransference and limits of therapy in war situation. (2/187)

Psychotherapy of war traumas and their specific emotional and psychological experiences is a challenge for the therapist. The two partners of the therapeutic dyad may undergo the same difficulties and suffer from the same anxieties, and be affected by the transference and countertransference processes. The conditions of neutrality that should be maintained in the treatment are thus prone to changes. The therapist may protect himself/herself from unconscious guilt, omnipotent fantasies and feelings of being overwhelmed by different modes of defenses. The historical and social context of the trauma have to be taken into account. A chronology to be introduced in the narrative is the first step in the process of reindividuation as the victim's identity has been attacked by the trauma as well as his/her physical integrity. The therapist may find in this intervention a reflection of his/her own needs. The aims of psychotherapy in war situations may be close to those of crisis intervention and at the same time deal with the reactivation of previous infantile traumas. The past plays a significant part in the readaptative process as much as it is relevant to the present. The therapeutic intervention is in essence a message of hope as it implies a potential future to be created.  (+info)

Complexity of therapist's feelings in the work with war-traumatized patients. (3/187)

AIM: To present the complexity of therapist's feelings and emotions in the work with war-traumatized persons and the importance of psychological mechanisms taking place in such circumstances. METHODS: The method of psychoanalytical psychotherapy was used, adapted to the work with war-traumatized persons. The therapy sessions were held once a week and lasted for 50 minutes. The patients were given transference interpretations differing from customary transference interpretations. They were modified to provide support, aiming at overcoming of the feelings overwhelming each patient. RESULTS: The diversity of the therapist's feelings amalgamated into countertransference was one of the most important psychological mechanisms in the therapy procedures, and served as an indicator of the patient's feelings in the procedure. It was related to the processes of projective identification as a framework of the complex patient-therapist relationship CONCLUSION: + In the work with a war-traumatized patient, it is inevitable that the patient's feelings are partly shared by the therapist through projective identification. This can lead to the "burnout" syndrome and threaten the boundaries of the therapist's psychological system. The role of the therapist includes not only knowledge but also the personal experience of work on himself. Through the process of therapy and by using interpretations as the powerful tool, the therapist is capable to accept such traumatic feelings and help the patient overcome them, but also to remain within the framework of his role.  (+info)

Psychiatric battle casualties: an intra- and interwar comparison. (4/187)

BACKGROUND: Psychiatric casualties are recognised as an important and inevitable feature of modern warfare. At the beginning of the 20th century they were scarcely acknowledged and still less treated. Today, as a result of lessons learned in the First and Second World Wars, numbers can be predicted on the basis of battle intensity and effective clinical interventions applied. AIMS: To discover more about the factors that cause psychiatric casualties and their relationship to total battle casualties. METHOD: A survey of historical War Office reports and the papers of Royal Army Medical Corps psychiatrists has provided both statistics and treatment strategies. RESULTS: Reported psychiatric casualties were low in the Boer War, influenced, in part, by the misdiagnosis of psychosomatic disorders. Their incidence rose appreciably in the First World War with the identification of shell-shock and neurasthenia. The Second World War saw the collection of accurate data, and combat stress was treated efficiently, although few soldiers returned to fighting units. CONCLUSIONS: A constant relationship exists between the incidence of the total killed and wounded and the number of psychiatric casualties, mediated by the nature of the fighting and quality of the troops involved.  (+info)

Population attributable fractions of psychiatric disorders and behavioral outcomes associated with combat exposure among US men. (5/187)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the percentage of adverse outcomes in US men attributable to combat exposure. METHODS: Standardized psychiatric interviews (modified Diagnostic Interview Schedule and Composite International Diagnostic Interview assessments) were administered to a representative national sample of 2583 men aged 18 to 54 in the National Comorbidity Survey part II subsample. RESULTS: Adjusted attributable fraction estimates indicated that the following were significantly attributable to combat exposure: 27.8% of 12-month posttraumatic stress disorder, 7.4% of 12-month major depressive disorder, 8% of 12-month substance abuse disorder, 11.7% of 12-month job loss, 8.9% of current unemployment, 7.8% of current divorce or separation, and 21% of current spouse or partner abuse. CONCLUSIONS: Combat exposure results in substantial morbidity lasting decades and accounts for significant and multifarious forms of dysfunction at the national level.  (+info)

War pensions (1900-1945): changing models of psychological understanding. (6/187)

BACKGROUND: War pensions are used to examine different models of psychological understanding. The First World War is said to have been the first conflict for which pensions were widely granted for psychological disorders as distinct from functional, somatic syndromes. In 1939 official attitudes hardened and it is commonly stated that few pensions were awarded for post-combat syndromes. AIMS: To re-evaluate the recognition of psychiatric disorders by the war pension authorities. METHOD: Official statistics were compared with samples of war pension files from the Boer War and the First and Second World Wars. RESULTS: Official reports tended to overestimate the number of awards. Although government figures suggested that the proportion of neurological and psychiatric pensions was higher after the Second World War, our analysis suggests that the rates may not have been significantly different. CONCLUSIONS: The acceptance of psychological disorders was a response to cultural shifts, advances in psychiatric knowledge and the exigencies of war. Changing explanations were both a consequence of these forces and themselves agents of change.  (+info)

Smaller hippocampal volume predicts pathologic vulnerability to psychological trauma. (7/187)

In animals, exposure to severe stress can damage the hippocampus. Recent human studies show smaller hippocampal volume in individuals with the stress-related psychiatric condition posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Does this represent the neurotoxic effect of trauma, or is smaller hippocampal volume a pre-existing condition that renders the brain more vulnerable to the development of pathological stress responses? In monozygotic twins discordant for trauma exposure, we found evidence that smaller hippocampi indeed constitute a risk factor for the development of stress-related psychopathology. Disorder severity in PTSD patients who were exposed to trauma was negatively correlated with the hippocampal volume of both the patients and the patients' trauma-unexposed identical co-twin. Furthermore, severe PTSD twin pairs-both the trauma-exposed and unexposed members-had significantly smaller hippocampi than non-PTSD pairs.  (+info)

Elevated serum lipids in veterans with combat-related chronic posttraumatic stress disorder. (8/187)

AIM: To assess possible differences in serum cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), triglycerides, arteriosclerosis index, established risk factor (ERF) of arteriosclerosis, and 10-year risk for coronary disease according to the Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP-III) between veterans with combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a control group consisting of patients with major depressive disorder. METHOD: We determined serum cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C, and triglycerides in the patients with PTSD (n = 103) and patients with major depressive disorder (n = 92), using the enzyme-assay method. AI, ERF, and ATP-III were calculated from cholesterol, LDL-C, and HDL-C levels. The groups were matched in age and body mass index (BMI). Patients with major depressive disorder were chosen as a control group because they do not have changes in serum lipids. RESULTS: Patients with combat-related PTSD had higher mean concentration of cholesterol (6.2+/-1.1 mmol/L vs 5.3+/-0.9 mmol/L; p<0.001), LDL-C (3.9+/-0.7 mmol/L vs 3.5+/-1.0 mmol/L; p = 0.005), and triglycerides (2.9+/-2.3 mmol/L vs 1.5+/-0.5 mmol/L; p<0.001), and lower HDL-C (1.0+/-0.3 mmol/L vs 1.3+/-0.2 mmol/L; p<0.001) than the control group. Arteriosclerosis index (4.2+/-1.2 vs 3.7+/-1.7; p = 0.050), ERF (6.4+/-1.9 vs 5.5+/-2.4; p = 0.010), and ATP-III (12.1+/-3.3 vs 10.2+/-3.8; p<0.001) were higher in PTSD than in the control group. CONCLUSION: Elevated concentrations of serum lipids are associated with combat-related PTSD. This may imply that patients with combat-related PTSD are under a higher risk for arteriosclerosis.  (+info)

One of the key lessons of the war in Chechnya for the study of military operations other than war (M00TW) is that the psychological climate of small-scale operations may be more complicated and stressful than large scale operations such as Desert Storm. Correspondingly, there may be a much larger role for mental health professionals to play, at or near the front. War always invokes fear in man. But the psychological climate for Russian forces in Chechnya was exacerbated by specific conditions. For example, the Russian armed forces, over the preceding 3 years leading up to the conflict, had been poorly trained. Worse, the intervention into Chechnya was poorly planned and initiated under horrible weather conditions. The fighting pitted poorly trained Russian forces fighting primarily in cities where combat stress is significantly higher than in the countryside against guerillas who knew the city layouts like the back of their hands. Many of the local noncombatants resented the Russians presence as ...

A substantial number of females reported being injured, wounded, assaulted, or hurt (17% of AD and 29% of NG/Rs). Over 14 percent reported encountering dead bodies/seeing people killed, 1 percent fired a weapon, and 19 percent were in danger of being killed. Approximately 12 percent had a combat score of 2+. In all models, female members with combat exposure had increased odds of behavioral problems. There was a dose-response relationship, such that as combat score increased, the odds of each behavioral problem increased. The risk was most striking for PTSD. Among AD females, those with a combat score of 1 had 4.4 times the odds of having PTSD compared to those with a combat score of 0 (95% confidence interval: 3.82-4.98). The odds increased to 20.6 for those with a combat score of 3. Results were similar for NG/R women. ...

Diabetics typically have high blood pressure, excess body weight, side effects from diabetes, and many other disease conditions. The body fights degeneration and disease with antioxidants and ORACs. Antioxidants help repair the body and ORACs help donate electrons to the body (which helps stop damage from occurring - see article in this blog on ORACs). Vitamin C can act as an antioxidant and ORAC, repairing the body and donating its electrons to vitamin E to help vitamin E work better and longer in the body. Vitamin C can also be an electron donor in conjunction with other substances in the body. Donating electrons is a powerful way for the body to combat stress. The stress of diabetes requires more repair and support for the body than non-diabetics, which is why we chose 1 gram of vitamin C, 20 minutes before meals, 3 times each day. We felt that the combination of high blood pressure, greater blood sugar levels and other diabetic side effects demanded a higher dose of vitamin C to regulate ...

Vitamin C can act as an antioxidant and ORAC, repairing the body and donating its electrons to vitamin E to help vitamin E work better and longer in the body. Vitamin C can also be an electron donor in conjunction with other substances in the body. Donating electrons is a powerful way for the body to combat stress. The stress of diabetes requires more repair and support for the body than non-diabetics, which is why we chose 1 gram of vitamin C, 20 minutes before meals, 3 times each day. We felt that the combination of high blood pressure, greater blood sugar levels and other diabetic side effects demanded a higher dose of vitamin C to regulate ...
As stated previously, the goal of the device manufacturer is not only to reduce wear but to do so with a design that addresses additional issues such as stress shielding. The strength of CFR PEEK allows thin, bone conserving parts to be produced. These thinner parts combat stress shielding, a problem that occurs with materials that have a higher density than bone. When stress is shielded, the natural strength of the bone is depleted according to Wolffs Law and the supporting bone is therefore prone to fracture. Thinner parts allow the natural stresses of the joint to travel through the prosthesis, permitting the natural bone to take on the normal load and, because no bone loss occurs, reducing the tendency of the bone to fracture. It also reduces the tendency for radiolucency (a fibrous tissue that separates the prosthesis or cement from the bone; resulting from either biological reaction to PMMA or mechanical loosening) around the backside of the prosthesis ...

Trauma-related nightmares and sleep disruption that follow combat exposure are distressing and frequently treatment resistant symptoms that impair quality of life and overall function. These symptoms closely resemble core nighttime symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and are increasingly recognized in returnees from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). Prazosin, a generically available brain active alpha-1 adrenergic receptor antagonist, markedly reduced or eliminated combat trauma-related nightmares and sleep disruption in 23 of 25 combat-exposed returnees from OIF at Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC). The use of prazosin in OIF returnees was based on clinical efficacy of prazosin for trauma-related nightmares, sleep disturbance, and overall function in Vietnam combat veterans with chronic PTSD. The only drugs FDA approved for PTSD are the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) sertraline and paroxetine. However, SSRI effectiveness in ...

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that follows exposure to a traumatic event. Research shows that 10.4% of women and 5.0% of men develop Posttraumatic stress disorder at some point in their lives. The precise reason for the twice greater prevalence of Posttraumatic stress disorder in women is not known, though a combination of biological causes (e.g., hormones) and environmental causes (e.g., gender socialization) are most likely responsible.. A traumatic event is the experiencing or witnessing of actual or threatened death or serious injury. In women the most frequent traumas are childhood sexual abuse, rape, domestic violence, and traumatic labor and delivery.. The symptoms of Posttraumatic stress disorder are divided into three categories. The first is the persistent reexperiencing of the traumatic event. This reexperiencing can take the form of intrusive recollections, recurrent dreams, reliving of the experience, hallucinations, flashbacks, and intense ...
Wars, earthquakes, major traffic accidents, and terrorist attacks may bring about profound spiritual pains, and even cause extreme fear and helplessness for people that have experienced or witnessed these unusual threats or disasters. This persistent and constant mental disorder caused by psychological trauma is termed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Can brain structural damage alter as symptoms improve? As PTSD progresses, brain structure inevitably changes, however, no PTSD symptoms have been clearly described in previous PTSD imaging studies. Understanding the brain areas highly involved in the improvement of PTSD symptoms will assist the judgment of PTSD patient prognosis. Weihui Li and colleagues from the Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, China compared the difference in brain structure in 12 mine disaster survivors with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, 7 cases of improved post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, and 14 controls who experienced the same mine ...

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders: A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.
The paper suggests that the negative idiosyncratic meaning of posttraumatic intrusions (e.g., I am going crazy) and cognitive strategies intended to control the intrusions play a major role in maintaining posttraumatic stress disorder. Two studies of 159 and 138 motor vehicle accidents survivors showed that the dysfunctional meaning of intrusions explained a proportion of the variance of the intrusion-related distress, strategies used to end the intrusions, and PTSD severity that was not explained by intrusion frequency, accident severity, or by general catastrophic thoughts when anxious. Rumination, thought suppression, and distraction when having intrusions showed substantial correlations with PTSD severity, as did avoidance of reminders of the accident. The results have implications for the treatment of chronic PTSD.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after exposure to a traumatic event.[1] Many individuals with PTSD repeatedly re-experience the ordeal as flashback episodes, memories, nightmares, or frightening thoughts, especially when exposed to events that remind them of the trauma. Other symptoms of PTSD include persistent avoidance of stimuli, negative alterations in cognitions and mood, and marked alterations in arousal and reactivity all associated with the traumatic event.[2] PTSD is often comorbid with and shares symptoms common to other conditions, such as substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, chronic health conditions, and sleep difficulties.. Symptoms usually develop following a traumatic event, though "delayed expression" PTSD can occur where full diagnosis is not met until at least six months after the trauma.[3] In DoD, eight to 20 percent of the more than 2.6 million service members who deployed in support of Operation Enduring ...
The study investigated changes in intrusive memories associated with imaginal reliving of traumatic events in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The study population comprised 44 patients treated with imaginal reliving in the context of cognitive therapy for PTSD [Behav. Res. Ther. 38 (2000) 319-345]. For most patients, imaginal reliving did not lead to exacerbations in intrusion frequency. The decrease in intrusion frequency after reliving was gradual, as was the decrease in their distress, vividness, and perceived nowness. Poorer outcome, i.e., a smaller reduction in residual gain scores for intrusion frequency with reliving, was associated with greater initial PTSD severity, greater anger, greater perceived nowness of intrusive memories, and more negative interpretations of PTSD symptoms. The patients anxiety, depression, self-blame, and dissociation were not predictive of response to reliving.
may be looking for a drug-free alternative to help combat stress and brighten their mood.. Natrol 5-HTP Fast Dissolve is a drug-free, plant-derived mood enhancement supplement that promotes calmness throughout the body by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is the chemical messenger that affects emotions, mood and behavior.. Stress and anxiety are two primary serotonin disruptors. They can interrupt the bodys normal production of serotonin which can result in a negative mood change. To combat this, the body converts a naturally occurring amino acid called 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) into serotonin to help balance mood levels, but on some days the body might need extra support from a supplement. Natrol 5-HTP works within the brain and the central nervous system to help balance serotonin levels that affect mood.. "Natrol 5-HTP is designed to help consumers live a more balanced lifestyle when life gets hectic. 5-HTP is a great tool to help calm stress and anxiety during the holidays," said ...

The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey19 suggested that 2% of the UK male population screened positive for probable depression, 4% for probable anxiety and 3% for probable PTSD, and one in three of the men reported probable alcohol misuse. In the current study, despite the results not being statistically significant at the 0.05 level (p=0.07), a higher level of alcohol misuse was found in combat-related visually impaired ex-service personnel compared with those with a non-combat-related visual impairment. A higher number of younger personnel were included in the former group, and findings from other studies suggest that alcohol misuse is more common among younger men.19 ,20 The European Study on the Epidemiology of Mental Disorders found slightly different levels of mental health disorders; 13% of the men met the criteria for depression and 3% for both anxiety or PTSD.21. In general, our results may indicate higher levels of mental health problems among working-age ex-servicemen compared with ...

When you suffer from stress (as most people do), its too hard to focus and be productive and too easy to have recurring irrational thoughts. It can also cause poor judgment and memory problems, and thats certainly not Bulletproof. A good way to combat stress is to use meditation and breathing exercises.. When you meditate, you practice the art of mindfulness, which allows you to choose which thoughts you want to focus on. It enables you to choose how you respond to your feelings instead of blinding reacting to them. Different ways of meditating include counting, mantras, mindfulness, positive self-talk, and controlled breathing exercises.. With controlled breathing, you want to breathe from your diaphragm, not your chest. Pull the air in through your nose all the way down into your belly, then exhale with your stomach first, using your diaphragm to push the air out of your lungs. Only your stomach should move, not your chest. The inhale should be a long, continuous breath, followed by a pause ...

Posttraumatic stress disorder influences the risk for first-onset major depression and alcohol use disorder. The causal explanation of these temporally secondary disorders is unclear and might involve the effect of PTSD or underlying vulnerabilities exposed by the traumatic experience.
Objectives:. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of an intensive integrated treatment for Veterans with comorbid chronic pain and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A secondary objective is to examine potential mechanisms of action that might account for improvements in pain or PTSD. Third, exploratory analyses will be conducted to assess the relationship between participation in treatment and cognitive functioning. It is hypothesized that 1) participants receiving the intensive treatment (PT) will report significantly greater decreases in symptoms of pain and PTSD from pre-treatment to post-treatment when compared to participants randomized to a standard care (SC) condition, and 2) participants receiving PT will show greater maintenance of change on measures of pain and PTSD at 3 months following the completion of treatment when compared to participants randomized to the SC condition. ...

If youve returned home from a combat zone, you have likely experienced trauma, and almost all people who have experienced a trauma have some posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms as a result; however, this does not necessarily mean that you have combat PTSD. In order to be diagnosed with combat PTSD, a formal assessment must be made by a healthcare professional and you must have a set number of symptoms that raise to a certain level of severity. You cannot determine, yourself, if you have a diagnosis of PTSD. There are changes in the brain in someone with combat PTSD and the symptoms they have fall into the categories of: Re-experiencing - a reliving of the past event Avoidance - avoidance of situations that remind you of the traumatic event Arousal - a feeling of being "keyed up" and always on the lookout for danger Negative changes in beliefs and feelings ...

INTRODUCTION: Exposure to a traumatic event may not only lead to a large variety of mental disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) but also respiratory symptoms and/or respiratory diseases, as asthma. OBJECTIVES: Systematic literature review of data on the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder on asthma. DOCUMENTARY SOURCES: Medline, on the period 1980-2018 with the following keywords: "PTSD" or "post-traumatic stress disorder" or "post-traumatic stress disorder" and "asthma", limits "title/abstract"; the selected languages were English or French. Among 141 articles, 23 abstracts have given use to a dual reading to select 14 studies. RESULTS: While PTSD may develop 4 weeks after being exposed to a traumatic event during which the physical integrity of the person has been threatened, it might also develop several months or years later. PTSD has been reported to be a risk factor for asthma and also a factor that might enhance a preexisting asthma. It is also important to note ...

Stress. Its something that everyone deals with in their lives, but too much of it can be very unhealthy. It can lead to heart disease, insomnia, high blood pressure, and more.. "The stress response, in and of itself, is not a bad thing," explained Dr. Darshan Mehta, Medical Director at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. "It was important for our survival as the human species. If there was an imminent danger in front of us, we were able to muster up resources in a short amount of time. This became known as the fight or flight response.". "Over the past 40 years, weve learned that when that response is chronically activated, the consequences are contributing factors to a whole host of conditions, such as hypertension, respiratory conditions like asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease," he stipulated. Patients managing chronic illnesses, such as blood clots, are especially at risk for being stressed and anxious. They are often balancing the ...
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the neuropsychological functioning of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) combat veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). More specifically, this study sought to examine whether the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and a comorbid mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) significantly differed from those with uncomplicated PTSD across multiple tests of cognitive functioning. To accomplish this objective, the medical records and neuropsychological assessment data of 59 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and 66 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and comorbid mild TBI were examined and included for statistical analysis. Results of this study yielded three main conclusions. First, neither group of OEF/OIF combat veterans demonstrated notable performance deficits across the battery of cognitive tests examined in this study. Second the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat ...
Risk and Resilience Factors for Combat-Related Posttraumatic Psychopathology and Post Combat Adjustment. The Ohio Army National Guard Mental Health Initiative (OHARNG-MHI) began in 2008 to evaluate the relationships between resilience and risk factors of developing PTSD and other mental illness, and follows soldiers in the Ohio National Guard longitudinally, before, during, and after deployment. The "Risk and Resilience" project is designed to study the relationships between 1) pre-existing mental illness/substance use disorders, 2) deployment to Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and 3) post-deployment related mental health and overall psychosocial adjustment.. The study is led by Dr. Joseph Calabrese and recently completed its eighth year of data collection. During that year, 1,140 service members completed their annual follow-up interviews. Since the project began in 2008, over 10,800 interviews have been completed with 3,841 Ohio National Guard members. Thus ...
Pets for Vets is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States dedicated to providing a second chance to shelter dogs by rescuing, training, and matching them with American veterans who need a companion pet. Pets for Vets was founded on October 21, 2009, by animal behaviorist and trainer, Clarissa Black, who was looking for a way to help American veterans who were suffering from combat stress and other emotional issues related to their service. Many Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans suffer physical and emotional injuries making it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Pets for Vets helps military veterans reclaim normalcy in their lives through companion dogs. Each companion dog is rescued in connection with local animal rescue groups. They are then given basic obedience training and any additional training that will help them assimilate into their new lives and then finally placed in their "forever" home. Estimates that anywhere from one in ...
lawsuit in 1984, with the consequent funding of compensation and services, five years later, for a limited number of veterans. Toward the end of the decade, two other sources of information lent further strength to the concerns about inherited effects of herbicide exposure among children of Vietnam veterans. The first was a literature survey by the Agent Orange Scientific Task Force, jointly sponsored by Vietnam Veterans of America, the American Legion, and the National Veterans Legal Services Project. Its 1990 report found evidence of a link between Agent Orange exposure and several birth defects, including Spina Bifida, oral clefts, cardiovascular defects, hip dislocations, and malformations of the urinary tract. In the same year, the National Birth Defect Registry, maintained by the nonprofit Association for Birth Defect Children, began collecting data on the children of Vietnam veterans. Two years later, the Association reported to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs that "a pattern of ...

Last Stand? The Criminal Responsibility of War Veterans Returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder THOMAS L. HAFEMEISTER * & NICOLE A. STOCKEY ** INTRODUCTION I. OVERVIEW
Morgan M, Lockwood A, Steinke D, Schleenbaker R, Botts S.. Psychiatr Serv. 2012 Feb 1;63(2):182-5.. OBJECTIVE:. The purpose of this study was to determine if veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) are treated differently pharmacologically than patients with PTSD alone.. METHODS:. A retrospective evaluation of PTSD pharmacotherapy of Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans with PTSD (N=707) was conducted between April 1, 2007, and March 31, 2009. A total of 45 veterans had suffered a mild TBI.. RESULTS:. Compared with the patients with PTSD alone, the patients with PTSD and TBI were more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant (p,.001), a sedative-hypnotic (p,.001), or an antipsychotic (p=.024). The patients with TBI were also significantly more likely to receive psychotropic polypharmacy (p=.001) and to receive higher doses of psychiatric medications (p=.03).. CONCLUSIONS:.
