Training Title:
PTSD and Veterans: The Invisible Wound

Clock Hours: 2

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • Recognize the impact PTSD has on the veteran population, • Identify symptoms of PTSD, • Evaluate patients for alcohol use disorder, • Name primary medications used in treatment of PTSD, • Describe PTSD symptoms, and • Name the main type of therapy used for treatment of PTSD

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) defines PTSD as “a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event.” While 7 – 8% of the general US population will develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at some point in their lifetime, US military veterans are at a higher risk due to circumstances of their profession. This course for mental health professionals will review the impact of PTSD on veterans, aid the professional in recognizing symptoms and eliciting information, and review best practices for treatment. Keywords: PTSD, posttraumatic stress disorder, veteran, substance abuse, cognitive behavioral therapy
