Burn Patients and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment



The William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is one of the largest and busiest burn centers in the nation. About 40% of people who are burned develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The psychiatrists and psychologists of NewYork-Presbyterian are an integral member of the Burn Center team and have worked to develop treatments specifically for burn patients with PTSD.

JoAnn Difede, Ph.D. and Judith Cukor, Ph.D.of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center’s Psychiatry Department discuss how the team helps burn patients cope with anxiety, depression, and other specific symptoms that may arise.
