Abstract:

In 2012, the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress continued to demonstrate its unique commitment to improving the psychological health of those people and populations exposed to trauma and traumatic events. While a great deal of our work continues to focus on research and outreach related to the mental health and resilience of our service members and their families, our Center responded to two tragic community shootings in Colorado and Connecticut. We provided expertise in community behavioral health and recovery, and the provision of real time, educational resources to help leadership and families in the aftermath of these events. Our Centers focus on translational research and knowledge - from the laboratory to the bedside, field, clinic and public policy - has enabled us to assist the Department of Defense and the nation in better responding to and preparing for the psychological and behavioral health effects of traumatic exposure.
