In this episode of Scripps TECH, a Marine veteran opens up about dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder after returning from combat operations overseas.
Dr. Skip Rizzo talked to neuroscientist Dr. Crystal Dilworth about BRAVEMIND, a virtual reality-based exposure therapy for PTSD, and how it is helping veterans such as retired Marine Veteran Christopher Merkle, in partnership with SoldierStrong.
“It’s about getting in the trenches and confronting and reprocessing those difficult emotional memories,” Rizzo said.
