Course information

CDP Presents: Prevention and Treatment of Remote Combat Stress online via Zoom

16 May, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern

Description: This 90-minute (75-minutes didactics, 15-minutes Q&A) webinar will discuss how growing numbers of “deployed-in-place” Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaisance (ISR) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) personnel are exposed to the stresses of remote combat and graphic media exploitation on a daily basis, the effects of which are not well understood. While qualitatively distinct from ground combat, early research has found that exposure to remote combat and graphic media can be related to increased symptoms of posttraumatic stress, moral injury, and other negative potential psychological outcomes. Topics of this presentation include rates of exposure, responses to measures of PTSD and moral injury, and review of potential treatment and mitigation strategies.
