As today is Veterans Day in the U.S., we feel this is a good opportunity to remind everyone of the work that still needs to be done to help veterans with PTSD.
Today’s Boston University article, Reaching Vets Falling Through the Cracks, talks about a program called Vet Change, which is a collaborative effort between the Boston University School of Medicine and Public Health and the VA in Boston. It was a web-based program designed to help veterans who might not have been able to get treatment otherwise. The program was a success and we feel it’s important to bring attention to “different” kinds of programs bringing relief and healing to this population.
We know from various research studies that EP has worked well in helping vets with PTSD. We hope that someday this will no longer be seen as a “different” way of helping veterans, and instead seen for what it is: one of the best ways to help veterans heal from their trauma. Here are two case studies from the Vets Stress Project using energy psychology techniques with veterans suffering from PTSD: http://www.energymed.org/ep/ep_2-vet-case-histories.htm
