About PTSD: Some Sources

In a month or so, I’ll be teaching students in my English 1A courses about medical humanities and sharing my blog with them. Then in my colleague Dylan Eret’s Humanities class, I’ll lead a writing exercise about scars and discuss my experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. At classes and presentations, I give out a list of resources that I’ve compiled. In thinking about all this, I realize that I’ve never shared this list on my blog. I’ve mentioned many of these sources in my previous posts but thought it might be a good idea to present them all to you in one place. So here goes:

  1. Dear Wendy,

    I’ve been reading your blog with interest. Our son, now 28, was treated 2 years ago for PTSD caused by invasive medical procedures as an infant and toddler. He had 7 surgeries and countless procedures by age 5.

    His life was completely changed after one week of outpatient PTSD treatment at the Intensive Trauma Therapy Institute in Morgantown, WV. You might be interested in their website, http://www.traumatherapy.com. They are amazing!

    Thank you for the list of resources above. They will be helpful as I continue to research PTSD in kids.
