Product Information

When individuals experience a traumatic, terrifying, life-changing event or series of events, with a real or threatened risk of death, they may develop a variety of symptoms known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although this condition has been described throughout history, veterans groups and healthcare providers have been slow to acknowledge its existence or explore the many dimensions of the disorder. Fortunately, this is changing as more individuals begin to discuss the personal and health-related issues concerning PTSD.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the nature and extent of PTSD. Potential causes of the disorder, risk factors associated with PTSD, symptoms and diagnostic criteria for individuals with PTSD, and current treatment options for individuals with PTSD are examined.


Course Objectives:

  1. Describe the nature and extent of PTSD.
  2. Identify proposed causes of PTSD.
  3. Explain risk factors for PTSD.
  4. Discuss the symptoms and diagnostic criteria for individuals with PTSD, including the two subtypes of PTSD.
  5. Describe current treatment modalities for individuals with PTSD.
