Title:  Medical Museum Science Cafe -Confronting "Shell Shock": The American Experience during World War I
Description:  During World War I, war-related psychological trauma was considered a new manifestation of psychiatric breakdown. American military medicine was challenged by establishing an entirely new medical specialty while treating the stricken service member and assuring an anxious public back home. Explore American psychiatrists' understanding of "shell shock" and what lessons they did – or did not – learn from their experience. Presenter: Rachel Levandoski is an historian in the Office of the Secretary of Defense Historical Office and a Ph.D. candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. FREE! Open to the public. No RSVP required. Request ADA accommodations five business days in advance at (301) 319-3303 or by email to:
