Upcoming Workshop: Living With PTSD

"Living with PTSD: A Conversation with Area Care Providers" will be held at the National Guard Readiness Center in New Milford, PA, on Saturday, October 16. From 9 a.m. to noon, presenters will discuss what PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is, how it's diagnosed, its effects on the individual and family members, and most importantly what resources are available to help. From noon to 1 p.m., attendees will have the option of meeting with counselors and other professionals for more detailed questions. The VA Mobile Unit will be present as well.

The workshop is free and everyone is encouraged to attend: veterans and their families, clergy, health care personnel, and the general public. Speakers will include Karen Burkeiser, Community Relations at the Scranton Vet Center; Dr. Matthew Dooley, Clinical Psychologist for the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center; Judith Herschel, clinical supervisor at Trehab; Captain Louis Kaminsky, Chaplain of the 1st Battalion (Heavy) 109th Infantry Regiment of the Army National Guard; Holly Russell, Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom Program Support; and David Ulkoski, LCSW, team leader at the Scranton Vet Center. This is a remarkable opportunity to hear specialists share their knowledge.

"Living with PTSD" is sponsored by the Susquehanna County Literacy Program and the Susquehanna County Library in conjunction with the Susquehanna County Department of Veteran's Affairs and Trehab. It's part of the community reading program Susquehanna County Reads “The Red Badge of Courage,” a month-long exploration of issues and themes in Stephen Crane's short but powerful Civil War classic. Susquehanna County Reads is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities' We the People initiative on American history. For more information on Susquehanna County Reads, please visit or call 570-278-1881.
