Build your understanding of the treatment of post-traumatic stress in returning veterans. With online activities to guide your learning, get an overview of biochemical treatments, evidence based therapies and treatments that show promise. Learn to identify the factors that may affect treatment of post-traumatic stress, such as the impact of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and addictions. Also discover the support options for military families, and the spiritual aspects of treatment.


This is an online course. Students will be required to have routine access to a computer that is connected to the Internet (we recommend a high speed connection such as DSL or cable modem). You are also required to have a recent version of Microsoft Office Suite or comparable program to include Microsoft Word (word processing), Excel (spreadsheets), and PowerPoint (presentations) in order to both view and create documents needed to participate in this course.

Some activities in this course may also require you to download current plug-ins such as Adobe Reader or Flash for viewing certain content. Most computers may already have some version of these installed, but it’s important to have the most current version.
