Dr. Julian Ford has a program and a grant targeted to help veterans deal with post traumatic stress syndrome. Dr. Ford's research, clinical work, and teaching focuses on assessment and psychotherapy of posttraumatic stress disorder, emotion regulation, healthcare utilization, and ethnocultural factors. Dr. Ford developed and conducts research on the TARGET psychosocial intervention model for adult, adolescent, and child traumatic stress disorders. Dr. Ford Chairs the Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences Scientific Review Subcommittee for the Department of Veterans Affairs. For a simplistic way to understand what happens in post traumatic disorder Dr. Ford explains what happens to people is that part of their brain triggers the alarm center which is there to protect us, but it goes off without a real threat. Dr. Ford's TARGET program is a formal training program that helps people take control over their emotions and that is EXACTLY the goal of our radio show, i.e., to "Take the Wheel and Control How We Feel!" Read the full description.

Courage_small While we teach listeners how to use The Emotion Roadmap for managing their own emotions and their emotional relationships with others, Dr. Ford's TARGET program provides a user manual and formal training for emotional control. It is targeted to work with people from all backgrounds. He does specialize in helping veterans. Dr. Ford introduces an acronym, FREEDOM which ultimately frees us from stressful reactions that are not grounded or based on reality. Each letter represents a step in the TARGET Program: Focus: Recognize triggers; Emotions you are experiencing both those that trigger alarm as well as those strengths that exist but may be in the background; Evaluate your thoughts, Define your goals, defining what is really important to you helps you to lessen the stress and become more calm; Options, choose the thoughtful, mindful choices that recognize and reinforce emotional intelligence, Make appropriate choices and manage and regulate emotions.
