In this episode, Dr. Ron meets and talks with Dr. Pam Hall, who has dedicated her career of 40 years to clinical and forensic psychology, and has met with nearly 7,000 veterans for VA benefits evaluations since 2013. She has just published "PTSD Unplugged: How To Leave The War Behind Us," a book that tells us what PTSD is and what it's not, and is geared for all audiences: veterans, families and clinicians. Pam explains what trauma memory is and how it relates directly to everything from avoidance to recovery and regaining quality of life, and how resetting the mission is possible.
Many thanks for Dr. Pam Hall who has devoted years and her own service to our servicemen and women who’ve experience trauma and stress in their lives.
Check out her new book: PTSD Unplugged and see Dr. Pam’s website to learn more.
