NDSU Distance and Continuing Education has scheduled a workshop titled “Law, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Justice-Involved Veterans” for Tuesday, March 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The workshop, presented by Terence Barrett, will be held in the SGC Building located at 1919 N. University Drive in Fargo.
The seminar is intended to assist mental health professionals providing services to returning combat veterans, in particular those involved in criminal charges.
Barrett will discuss what life after combat is like and issues related to transitions from combat. He will address such questions as whether Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms obstruct the veteran’s ability to form viable cognitive intent to act in certain ways and whether combat veterans should be held entirely responsible for their actions upon return from a war zone.
Barrett, who earned a doctorate in psychology, served seven years as an aviation officer in the United States Marine Corps. He is a licensed psychologist in a full-time private practice in Fargo.
The one-day presentation is $99, with lunch included. Continuing education units are available to qualified professions. For more information or to register online, go to http://ndsu.me/dcelaw.
