Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with Dr. Jeffrey Sonis

Listen to the show!

Jeffrey Sonis

Dr. Jeffrey Sonis joins YOUR HEALTH™ to discuss Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following war and disaster and to explore the question of whether or not justice is good for mental health.

Dr. Sonis is an assistant professor of Social Medicine and Family Medicine at UNC-Chapel Hill. He conducts research on the psychosocial consequences of human rights violations, and has worked with survivors from Bosnia, South Africa, United States (9/11),  Vietnamese prison camps and Cambodia. He is interested in helping people move forward following traumatic events through the use of social mechanisms, such as trials and truth commissions.

On a lighter note, we’ll be also introducing Weekend Warriors , a new segment looking at  the treatment and prevention  of common (and not so common) sports and recreation injuries with guest contributor  Dr. Ronnie Laney.
