Sarah Hautzinger: A Better Way to Deal with PTSD

Sarah Hautzinger: A Better Way to Deal with PTSD

CC Associate Anthropology Professor Sarah Hautzinger recently co-authored “Beyond Post-Traumatic Stress: Homefront Struggles with the Wars on Terror” with Jean Scandlyn, research associate professor of health and behavioral sciences and anthropology at the University of Colorado Denver.

Their research forms the basis of an article titled “A better way for us to deal with PTSD” in The Denver Post’s Perspective section, in which they tell a tale of two cultures, tracing the contours of what some call the military-civilian cultural gap.

The authors call for expanded efforts to confront war’s costs for combat veterans and their communities alike, arguing that medical treatment for the effects of deployment-based stress and trauma is a necessary but, in itself, insufficient response.
