WW1 Series: Nurses and psychological trauma in the First World War

Denise Poynter looks at nurses who experienced war neuroses during the First World War.

The notion of war-induced traumatic neurosis being the preserve of men is essentially pretence. It was not only soldiers who experienced ‘shell-shock’ during the First World War, but the previous focus on male sufferers means the history of the condition is incomplete. Dr. Denise Poynter fills this gap in the research by outlining the experiences, symptoms and treatment of war trauma experienced by nurses in the First World War. Refreshments will be provided.
This event is co-ordinated by the RCN History of Nursing Society [link to www.rcn.org.uk/hons]
