Take a pill to just fuggetaboutit.

An interesting article about Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (and its poor success rate) as a treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as a discussion of research being done to work on creating a pill to help people forget traumatic events.  I’m not too thrilled about that option.  Sometimes how we deal with trauma defines who we are in a positive way, too.  Not to mention, can you imagine what would happen if a dictator got a hold of it?

Anyway, enjoy the article!
