Diagnosing and Treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Diagnosing and Treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder 

A study of 69,000 people across 24 countries found that more than 70% reported exposure to a traumatic event (Benjet et al., 2016). Most overcome their trauma responses without formal intervention. Others, however, experience persistent symptoms that need formal intervention. The two most common trauma-related disorders are acute stress disorder (ASD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The goal of this educational program is to provide nurses, social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and psychologists in health and human services settings with information on the diagnostic criteria for acute stress disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder, steps in the diagnostic process, and psychological and pharmacological interventions to treat PTSD.
