Workshop title

The magic of treating veterans with PTSD

Workshop times

Saturday 16.30-18.00

Workshop description

To be able to treat veterans effectively we need to understand what motivatess them and what makes them feel safe to entrust us to help them. Veterans are very proud people, dignified and believe in honour and friendship. We as practitioners need to sharpen ourselves, be truly connected to who we are and open our hearts to be effective instruments of healing. Naji will draw on his experience in treating hundreds of veterans, comparing trauma in veterans to trauma in civilians, and talking about the most effective approaches and treatments.

Speaker biography

Naji is an acupuncturist and co-founder of Stand Easy – standeasy.org.uk – a charity treating veterans traumatised by war and struggling with PTSD. In this talk he draws on his experience of over 30 years of treating both soldiers and civilians caught up in the Lebanese civil war and more recently those who've served in the British military.
Born in Beirut, Naji grew up through the chaos of sectarian tensions which eventually erupted into a particularly brutal civil war where civilians were also caught up in the fighting. In 1976 he came to the UK to study acupuncture, gaining his master’s from the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa. He co-founded the London College of Traditional Acupuncture in 1991. Naji now lives in the Norfolk countryside with his wife and a variety of animals. He has a thriving private practice and still returns to Beirut to treat.
