Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Overview for Physical Therapy, 2nd Ed. is organized by Western Schools and will be held from Apr 12, 2018 - Apr 12, 2021.
This basic level course provides an overview of PTSD for physical therapists working in a variety of roles and settings. This course addresses basic information regarding PTSD, including DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, etiology, incidence, risk factors, interventions, and treatment methods. Though detailed assessment and treatment of PTSD are outside of the physical therapist's scope of practice, PTSD will impact the patient's quality of life. In order to provide holistic care to the patient, physical therapists need to be able to screen and refer patients appropriately and understand the treatments that help them recover.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
