    OFJCC Palo Alto JCCPost-Traumatic Stress Disorder goes far beyond the horrors of war and is an inescapable part of all our lives.

    At any given moment, more than six million Americans are suffering with PTSD, a widely misdiagnosed and misunderstood condition. Explore how PTSD cuts to the heart of life, interfering with one's capacity to love, create and work and its tangible imprint on our cultures and societies around the world.

She is a trauma scientist with the National Center for PTSD, a consortium which is widely regarded as the world's leading center of excellence on PTSD, and a Clinical Associate Professor affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Her debut book, The Unspeakable Mind: Stories of Trauma and Healing from the Frontlines of PTSD Science, portrays the crushing condition that affects millions around the world.
