Late last year in a progress update, IMCRA detailed an addition to our basic PTSD/TBI program focusing on the mental stresses resulting from the widely-acknowledged current of intolerance, belligerence and polarization now dividing the country.  After numerous reports appeared in the popular and medical press describing how media reporting of outrages in the political, international and domestic spheres have produced an acute exacerbation of underlying psychopathologies, we felt that the program had to be modified to address a root cause of the disturbances we were seeing in our target population.
