Childhood presentations of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be difficult to identify and treat. Watch this seminar and learn cutting-edge strategies for children who present in your practice with symptoms of PTSD. You will learn interventions for both immediate post-trauma and long-term treatment. In the new DSM-5®, there is a new feature in the diagnosis of PTSD – a preschool subtype for children ages six and younger. You will learn the new criteria as this change will impact how you diagnose and treat children with PTSD.
Discover why some children develop PTSD symptoms, while others do not – even after being exposed to the same traumatic event. You will learn what psychotropic medications are prescribed for PTSD in the pediatric population, along with benefits and side effects. Find out what you can do as a clinician to reduce your client’s symptoms and protect your client from future recurrences of PTSD.
