    The Interpersonal Approach to Working with Veterans

    Wednesday, September 28, 2016
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Andrew S. Berry, Ph.D., Psy.D., ABPP
    Discussant: Capt. Nate Emery, USMC (Ret'd)

    The interpersonal approach in working with veterans with PTSD emphasizes relationships over a collection of psychiatric, biochemically driven symptoms. These symptoms do not exist in a vacuum and are most viscerally experienced in the context of interpersonal relationships. A major part of these relationships, it should be noted, are the patient's dealings with those in positions of authority, traced back to the formative years of childhood, setting a template for current similar relationships with authority figures.
