About the Course
While most individuals who experience traumatic stressors do not develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the high incidence of trauma exposure in the United States requires routine assessment of exposure to a single traumatic event, ongoing traumatic experiences, and symptoms of PTSD. This intermediate-level course presents an interesting history of the diagnosis, provides current information on assessment approaches, and details effective treatment methods. The role of risk and resiliency factors, as well trauma-informed care are discussed. The course includes a discussion on special considerations for different populations, case examples, and an extensive resource list.
