Ruth Myles, a flight nurse at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team (DHART) delivers her talk at #CAMPECHO regarding PTSD and the relationship between it and video gaming and what recent research has shown.
"We did not do enough”, this statement was made by a Dispatcher in the AfterAction Report following the mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub, Orlando, Fl. It is an expression of psychological trauma that is echoed in us all at one time or another. Intrusive memories of the traumatic event or flashbacks are hallmark signs of PTSD, and preventive strategies are lacking. This presentation will examine recent studies that indicate the therapeutic value of video games as a cognitive vaccine.
