Traumatic experiences happen more often than people think. A traumatic event can range from a minor accident to an assault or military combat. How a person reacts to a traumatic event is the key to diagnosis and treating PTSD. Some people will have a normal short-term response while others may have a longer reaction timespan that can lead to acute stress disorder and PTSD. According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, 7 out of every 100 people experience PTSD in their lives. This percentage is a small portion of those who experience trauma at some point in their lives. This course provides an overview of PTSD and discusses the prevalence, assessment, and management of PTSD.
