BraveHeart: Welcome Back Veterans Southeast Initiative
Emory University and the Atlanta Braves have teamed up to offer Veterans of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and their family members a variety of expert support resources through BraveHeart: Welcome Back Veterans Southeast Initiative. Our mission is focused on education, outreach, and helping people in the Southeastern United States get help for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Introducing the initiative and giving background on PTSD is Emory University's Dr. Barbara Rothbaum, professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and director of the Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program at Emory University School of Medicine. Rothbaum is a clinical psychologist who specializes in research on the treatment of individuals with anxiety disorders, focusing in particular on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She is a pioneer in the application of virtual reality exposure therapy to the treatment of psychological disorders.
