Professor Jamie Hacker Hughes to host special webinar

Join discussion on military mental health
04 November 2013

While the physical rehabilitation of service personnel often features prominently in the headlines, the mental effects of war on serving or veteran soldiers is often less well publicised.

PsychologyOnline is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, 5 November discussing the impact that military conflict can have on the mind and the how online cognitive behavioural therapy can improve access to support both on and off the battlefield.

The webinar - which will take place between 1.30pm and 2.30pm - will be led by prominent military psychologist Professor Jamie Hacker Hughes, who has spent 20 years in the military, first as an army officer and later as a military psychologist. He rose to become head of clinical psychology for the Ministry of Defence.

Prof Hacker Hughes (pictured right) will also explore the type of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder that affect serving personnel, reservists, veterans and their families and how they can be assessed and treated.

He will also outline some of the warning signs to allow the families of service personnel to spot when a mental health problem may be manifesting.

If you would like to book your place at the webinar, which will last for one hour, send your name, company and email address to info@psychologyonline.co.uk with “military webinar” in the subject field.
