Some time ago, I gave a presentation entitled
“War-Related Traumatic Reactions in Veterans and Their Impact on Families”
at a conference for an audience of directors of nursing homes and directors of social services in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The presentation focused on the impact of war trauma on veterans and their family members, especially as the veterans age and family caretakers suffer from the long-term effects of caretaker burnout, and the stress of living with a trauma-survivor parent, spouse or partner. Much of the information in the presentation is also relevant to those living with long-term effects of other traumatic experiences, and their caretakers.
A pdf version of the slides from the presentation can be downloaded here. I hope you will find it helpful, and pass it along if you know someone who might benefit from it.
