Confronting the Shell Shock of War Dr. Annessa Stagner

April 15, 11 a.m InfoZone News Museum

This presentation will look at World War I as a lens into the psychological trauma that occurs among both civilians and soldiers during war. World War I was often perceived as the first modern, industrial war, and with it came destruction and death on a massive scale. It was also the first time many doctors and military officials recognized psychological injuries of war. Their early attempts at treatment not only reveal the destruction of World War I in particular, but also the ways in which psychological war trauma has persisted as a by-product of war.
