Students United for Returning Veterans and Students for Stress Resilience Collaborate on Veterans Day Event

This Veterans Day, Nov. 11, two student organizations, Students United for Returning Veterans (SURV) and Students for Stress Resilience will host a discussion on post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) and stress resilience.  The discussion will be led by Barry Nierenberg, Ph.D., ABPP.

Nierenberg is an associate professor of Psychology at NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies. He is a member of the Executive Board of the American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology and is the current President of the Academy of Rehabilitation Psychology.

Nierenberg currently serves on the Executive Board of the Florida Department of Health’s Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Advisory Council where he previously held the post of Chairman. He is also a past president of the American Psychological Association’s Division of Rehabilitation Psychology. Nierenberg’s research interests are focused on the interplay of biopsychosocial factors in chronic illness, wellness and disease, as well as healthcare disparities, pediatric psychology, and child and family adaptations to acute and chronic medical conditions.

The Veteran’s Day event is open to all students, faculty and staff and will be held from 12-1p.m., at the James and Nan Farquhar Second Floor Lounge in the Don Taft University Center.
