Discussion: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

 

 It is estimated that more than 6% of the U.S. population will experience posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in their lifetime (National Center for PTSD, 2010). This debilitating disorder often interferes with an individual’s ability to function in daily life. Common symptoms of anxiousness and depression frequently lead to substance abuse issues and even physical ailments. For this Discussion, as you examine the Thompson Family Case Study in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat clients presenting with PTSD.

 

· Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide.

 

· View the media Academic Year in Residence: Thompson Family Case Study, and assess the client in the case study.

 

· For guidance on assessing the client, refer to pages 137–142 of the Wheeler text in this week’s Learning Resources.

 

Note: To complete this Discussion, you must assess the client, but you are not required to submit a formal Comprehensive Client Assessment.
