PTSD In The Workplace: How To Systematically Reverse PTSD and Accelerate MMI

PTSD devastates lives. The good news is, with expert treatment, PTSD can be systematically reversed. The lifetime prevalence of PTSD in the general population is approximately 8% and can be higher in some professions (estimated at 37% among firefighters). Additionally, approximately 80% of individuals with PTSD have a comorbid disorder including depression. If left untreated suicidal ideation and behavior can take place as the result. Even when suicide does not occur, untreated PTSD can lead to poor physical health including hypertension, impaired decision-making, problems in the workplace and needless disability. This presentation will demonstrate how in person and telehealth evidence-based treatments are used to systematically reverse PTSD and accelerate MMI.

Dr. Dabdoub began his career with the Los Angeles Police Department in the early 1990s. His last duty assignment was with the Major Crimes Division. Throughout his tenure on the Department, he completed a wide variety of assignments. Dr. Dabdoub's interest in psychology developed during his career in law enforcement when he was first exposed to Crisis Negotiation Training (CNT) and Mental Health Intervention Training (MHIT). MHIT is aimed at helping police officers understand and assist individuals struggling with mental illness.

Dr. Dabdoub completed his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of La Verne. His original research recruited active and retired police officers of all ranks and job specialties. Dr. Dabdoub's research explored the costs associated with serving in law enforcement and looked at several factors including burnout, compassion fatigue, suicidality, and use of force. He worked in several hospital settings, including the Veteran's Health Administration. Before joining the Institutes of Health, Dr Dabdoub served as the Clinical Psychologist for an active duty unit. In addition to his clinical work, he implemented various programs aimed at preventing and mitigating mental health concerns, reducing stigma, increasing resilience, and improving overall mission performance. Dr. Dabdoub continues to focus his clinical skills on PTSD, burnout, moral injury, chronic pain, compassion fatigue, and suicidality.
