Scott Janssen to give NHPCO webinar on how PTSD impacts EOL care

Scott Janseen‘s May 11th webinar “will explore the origins of PTSD and subclinical PTSD, its potential impact on trauma survivors, the ways illness can complicate effective coping, relational harmony and care at end of life, and how hospice and palliative care professionals can help.”

“Scott is a Clinical Social Worker with Hospice and Palliative Care Center of Alamance-Caswell in Burlington, NC and has been a hospice social worker for 25 years. His interest in serving hospice patients and family members struggling with the effects of psychological trauma grew out of his commitment to serving combat veterans (many of whom have some level of unresolved trauma and unprocessed traumatic grief). He has been trained in Somatic Experiencing, a somatic approach to healing trauma as well as other modalities and has written several articles about working with veterans and other survivors of trauma at the end of life.

“Scott is an Editorial Advisor for the magazine Social Work Today and continues to write about PTSD at the end of life as well as many other topics related to hospice and clinical social work practice.”
