Trauma-Informed Care to Support Tobacco Cessation in Individuals Diagnosed with PTSD (Webinar)

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

PTSD & Tobacco Cessation: Trauma-Informed Care to Support Tobacco Cessation in Individuals Diagnosed with PTSD
Date: Wednesday, November 13, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET

Individuals diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are nearly twice as likely to smoke – research shows 45 percent of Americans diagnosed with PTSD smoke, more than double the rate of the general population. In addition, individuals diagnosed with PTSD who use tobacco are less successful in their attempts to quit, and resume smoking at a higher rate following cessation efforts. Applying the principles of trauma-informed care can improve the rate of tobacco cessation among individuals diagnosed with PTSD and enhance overall behavioral health treatment outcomes.

Join the National Behavioral Health Network on Wednesday, November 13, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET for PTSD & Tobacco Cessation: Trauma-Informed Care to Support Tobacco Cessation in Individuals Diagnosed with PTSD, a webinar to support practitioners in enhancing their treatment approaches for individuals diagnosed with PTSD.
