PTSD has often been referred to as the new public health crisis. As social workers, we are likely to encounter clients with PTSD in all areas of practice. This course provides a practical overview of the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, risk factors, and evidence-based treatments for PTSD, as well as the importance of screening for PTSD and monitoring of symptom change and treatment outcomes.
