This workshop reviews what mental health professionals need to know about working with traumatized individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Kara Fowler, LPC-S, RD, LD, will review issues around etiology, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment approaches. Author Jenni Schaefer, a recovered patient with a history of PTSD, will share her story of seeking professional help, an experience that encompasses misdiagnosis, uninformed treatment methods, and, ultimately, the importance of evidence-based as well as alternative approaches. Combining clinical and personal perspectives, this unique presentation addresses the critical issues involved in recognizing and treating individuals with PTSD.

 Objectives: As a result of this lecture, participants will be able to:

 1. Describe risk factors, etiology, and assessment for PTSD.

2. Explain a phase-based approach for treating PTSD, including both evidence-based as well as alternative methods.

3. Assess the positive and negative experiences of a patient who sought treatment from a succession of providers for symptoms indicative of trauma and PTSD.

This event provides 2 free CEU’s.
