Interpersonal Violence: Using Neuroimaging and Genotyping to Understand PTSD

Featured Speaker: Steven E. Bruce, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, and Clinical Director, Center for Trauma Recovery, University of Missouri - St. Louis

Full title: Interpersonal Violence: Using Neuroimaging and Genotyping to Understand PTSD Risk, Resilience, and Recovery

Dr. Steven Bruce, Director of UMSL's Center for Trauma Recovery, talks about recent findings on the use of leading edge techniques such as neuroimaging and genotyping to examine both the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and functional changes in the brain after successful cognitive behavioral treatment.

Presented in conjunction with the History Museum traveling exhibition The Doll Project, a multimedia photographic exhibit featuring images of makeshift monuments erected throughout the St. Louis area for those who have fallen victim to a crime or untimely and tragic circumstances. The Doll Project opens at the Museum on January 19, 2013.

      In all fairness when I saw you I should have said, "where is the sign?" You were working after all. The responsibility was mine.

      It's pretty amazing. I've done their women's self defense events in the past and they're incredible. Extreme, too--they teach you all day, then have someone in full armor pick you up and put you on a mat, and you have to fight him off the way they taught you. Useful!

      Of course I can. Shoot me a text or give me a call at[masked] and we can chat. :-) Btw, I did get the private message and responded, but since this message is here I'm assuming you didn't receive my response.
