Maine Holds Conference to Train Therapists Preparing to Aid Returning Troops
The Maine Army National Guard recently held a two-day conference in Bangor, Maine for about 100 therapists. The intent was to help the therapists understand the risks faced by members of the military that return from combat zones. Some returning Soldiers, over time, may develop serious clinical conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or clinical depression.
