Training Title:
Veterans and PTSD

This course provides a brief and general introduction to PTSD in veterans, especially those of the more recent U.S. wars, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan). Information for this course comes primarily from the Iraq War Clinician Guide, an excellent source of guidance for civilian (and military) clinicians working with veterans from those and other more recent wars. There is a brief review of military-related stressors, diagnostic criteria for PTSD and ASD, the military’s multi-phasic model of traumatic stress response, and recommended assessment and treatment approaches. ] Keywords: Trauma, harm, injury, trauma-informed care, care, PTSD, dissociative, acute stress, DSM, Post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, ASD, veterans, military, addictions, substance abuse, mental health, behavioral health, diagnosis, Genie Skypek
