Graduate Student Kenneth Pitts of the Psychology department gave an amazing tear wrenching talk Thursday night in front of a group of 60 students and faculty at the Rose Art Museum. SCRAM, in partnership with Psychology Club, brought students from many disciplines to the museum that night to talk about trauma, coming home from war, and art. Sitting in the Lower Rose in the exhibit Rose Project 1B: 1914: Magnus Plessen Ken recounted his experiences in combat. Opening up to the students and faculty Ken gave insight into the life of a solider and the emotional trip of returning to every day life after war. He discussed suicide rates, stress and PTSD in the lives of his family and friends post-combat. He shared his personal experiences with an engaged and respectful audience.
Thank you to all those who came!
