Featuring Frank Guastella Anderson, M.D.

The Trauma Center at JRI is very pleased to present our premier DVD production, featuring TC-JRI faculty member, Dr. Frank Guastella Anderson. This video presentation of one of our most popular workshops discusses medications for PTSD, dissociation, and associated symptoms, for both children and adults.

This presentation also includes an overview of alternatives to traditional treatments as well as medications that are being newly developed for trauma.
