Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious disorder that impacts clinical practice for a rapidly growing percentage of community-based clinicians as many combat veterans to normal civilian and social environments.

"Soldiers of Peace"

Where: The Peace Abbey • 2 North Main St. ( Rt. 27) • Sherborn

Soldiers of Peace

We are bombarded with images of war. On the TV news, in our newspapers. The pictures pile up, and with them some solid assumptions. We assume that war is human nature. That there's an epidemic of war and it's only getting worse. That it's too profitable for some businesses to be stopped. And too effective for some governments to give up. That war will be with us forever.

"The Untold Stories of War: Surviving Loss and Organizing a Movement"

On this Memorial Day we will discuss the impact of the ongoing wars on families with loved ones in the military.
