Psychiatrist, alumna looks at post-traumatic stress in children and young adults during April 5 event

On April 5, alumna Lenore Cagen Terr will present “Columbine to Connecticut: Sub-groups, Symptoms, Treatment & Trends,” discussing post-traumatic stress among children and young people. Cagen Terr, a former Clevelander, now teaches at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine.

From Chowchilla, Calif., where 26 school children were kidnapped and buried alive, to Concord, N.H., where hundreds of TV-watching schoolchildren saw their teacher’s space vehicle explode, she has directly observed and then followed how young people manage and survive extreme events.

The event, the Cleveland Medical Library Association’s annual lecture, will begin at 6 p.m. at Ford Auditorium in the Allen Memorial Medical Library.
