Often Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is associated with war veterans, police officers or others who've experienced acute violence. However, there are many types of trauma that can cause PTSD: witnessing a violent act, surviving a fire or a car crash, even losing a loved one. On a Science Café edition of the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with a local psychology professor about how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs, who commonly suffers from it, and why so many people don't get the treatment that may work best for them.

Guests

Dr. Norah Feeney, Associate Professor of Psychology, Case Western Reserve University
Loren Post, Graduate Student and PTSD Researcher, Department of Psychology, Case Western Reserve University
