The Limits of Adaptive Coping: Neurobiology of Extreme Stress

Arlington, VA US
June 26, 2014


 

DCoE Webinar Series (Psychological Health):  June 2014
 

Date/Time: June 26, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Despite unprecedented efforts over the course of the longest war in American history, existing programs in the Defense Department and Veterans Affairs to prevent, identify and treat stress disorders among military service members, veterans, and their families remain hampered by factors that limit their effectiveness.  Research studies indicate that stigma, as a barrier to care, remains high in military communities.  One limitation of existing psychological health programs, including those designed to reduce stigma, may be their exclusion of emerging scientific perspectives on the role of the central nervous system (CNS) in extreme stress.  This webinar will examine the evidence that stress disorders are fundamentally neurobiological as well as psychosocial, and will provide an overview of select CNS neurotransmitter systems and neuronal pathways implicated in normal and pathological stress states.  Discussion will include biologically informed approaches for psychoeducation to reduce stigma and for prevention and treatment in both clinical and non-clinical settings.

You are invited to the DCoE May 2014 webinar titled, The Limits of Adaptive Coping: Neurobiology of Extreme Stress.  We look forward to your participation on Thursday, June 26, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT).  Below are the event details and instructions for participating.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify CNS neurotransmitter systems and pathways implicated in persistent adverse stress outcomes such as PTSD
  • Correlate acute and chronic stress-induced changes in the functioning of CNS neurotransmitter systems with persistent changes in cognition, emotions and behavior
  • Summarize clinical and non-clinical approaches to addressing stress-induced neurobiological dysfunction
