I have found many great sources pertaining to PTSD in veterans. One of the websites I have found has helped me more than any other. The website is http://www.ptsd.va.gov. I have found that this website has a lot of hand outs and information sheets about PTSD. I was able to answer most of my research questions from this one site. Also, I found the article ” 1 in 8 returning soldiers suffers from PTSD.” This article gave me a lot of useful information about the statistics of PTSD in veterans and has been really beneficial to my research project.
Throughout this research project I have gained many valuable research skills. The one skill that I have learned in the past couple of weeks that has helped me a lot is learning how to write a formal email requesting an interview. I think for the most part I represent myself professionally. I think after learning how to write a formal email I am more confident and I know what to say and what not to say. Mrs. Lester has helped me a lot through this process and I think this is a skill I will use for the rest of my life.
