VESTAL (WBNG) — Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was the main topic during the lecture in clinical psychology at Binghamton University Monday evening.

BU Psychology professor, Stephen Lisman, was the host of the lecture. Binghamton University alumnus, Terrence Keane, was on hand as well to deliver the lecture.

The two discussed the current status of treatment for PTSD, as well as new directions future studies may take. Keane says the onset of PTSD can come from a variety of events that may happen in a person’s life.

“It’s secondary to war as we discussed, but it’s also secondary to community violence, to these mass shootings in this country, to automobile and traffic accidents, to industrial accidents, to sexual assaults and to child abuse,” said Keane.

Keane says 20 to 25 million Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives.
