University of Connecticut to study PTSD-seeks volunteers

 The University of Connecticut is seeking veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to conduct studies
of PTSD.

Two different types of treatment will be used in this study of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.

One type of treatment involves the veteran working through the troubling memories of combat, a rather
standard type of treatment.

The other does not involve delving into those memories, but instead helps teach skills to help manage
the emotions associated with painful memories and events.

These is not cost to the individual for the study, and in fact there will be a small stipend for agreeing
to volunteer for the project.

Anyone interested in joining the study is asked to call 860-679-2214 for more information.

So an veteran of Iraq/Afghanistan who is suffering from PTSD please seek help, and this is a very
good way to find that help.
