Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Taught by clinical psychologist and combat Veteran Dr. Heidi Kraft, this course discusses the difference between PTSD and PTS. The new DSM-V criteria is described in detail, including a discussion of the expanded definition of Criterion A, the traumatic event. It details the categories of PTSD symptoms and specifics regarding how they might present clinically in the Veteran population. In addition, Dr. Kraft reviews several traumatic events specific to the Veteran experience, which might present in a clinical encounter. Video clips from "Make the Connection" feature case examples from Veterans themselves, discussing their personal experiences with PTSD. For Continuing Education information click HERE.
