On Monday 16 November, the University of Bristol will host the 2015 Colston Research Society Public Lecture, which this year addresses innovations in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The lecture will be delivered by Professor Barbara Rothbaum of Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, USA, who specialises in research on the treatment of individuals with anxiety disorders, focusing particularly on PTSD. The event is open to all those with an interest in PTSD and mental health. Attendance is free, but places must be booked in advance. More information is available on our public events web pages.

The lecture complements the 2015 Annual Colston Research Society Symposium, a two-day academic symposium devoted to new development in PTSD research and treatment. Professors Astrid Linthorst and Hans Reul of the School of Clinical Sciences have led the University’s collaboration in the symposium. Their research groups investigate neurobiological and cognitive mechanisms in the brain that support coping with stress.
