CFR Staff Therapist Ryan McMillian Spoke on Veterans’ Voice Radio
September 30, 2019 | Recently, Ryan McMillian, MDiv, LMFT, shared his expertise in a panel discussion about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on Veterans’ Voice Radio – WFYL.
PTSD is a condition that affects individuals who have experienced, or witnessed, a traumatic event. Symptoms can vary in severity and are separated into four distinct clusters: Intrusive Memories, Avoidance, Negative Thoughts or Mood, and Hyperarousal. Veterans and military service members may experience PTSD as a result of their time in combat and this among other things can cause them difficulties when reintegrating back into civilian life. Often, a Veteran’s spouse or family members are the first to notice the symptoms of PTSD and they are largely the main catalysts in the Veteran’s decision to seek counseling.
