3.6 out of 4.0, Based on: 6,154 reviews
Post-traumatic stress consists of a spectrum of traumatic stress disorders. These disorders can be arranged along a continuum, from Acute Stress Reaction, to Acute Stress Disorder, Acute PTSD, and Chronic PTSD.
Each of these may be associated with serious mental and physical co-morbidities. Some survivors will experience only a part of this spectrum, while others will progress through the entire range. This course will examine evidence-based practices used to prevent and treat PTSD including screening, cognitive behavioral and other therapies, and medications.
