AboutFace aims to help Veterans and their families recognize PTSD symptoms and motivate them to seek treatment. Through personal video testimonial, viewers meet Veterans and hear how PTSD has affected them and their loved ones.
AboutFace testimonials give clinicians insight into the experiences of their patients. Clinicians and providers can share AboutFace with:
Finally, regarding Veteran perceptions of barriers to care and the therapeutic experience, AboutFace should help clinicians achieve a better understanding regarding the ambivalence that characterizes most treatment-seeking behavior and, most importantly, help them engage their Veteran clients with empathy, authenticity and humility."
