Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Photo Credit: Getty Images/iStockphoto
It is estimated that more almost 7% of
the U.S. population will experience posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in
their lifetime (National Institute of Mental Health, 2017). This debilitating
disorder often interferes with an individual’s ability to function in daily
life. Common symptoms of anxiousness and depression frequently lead to
behavioral issues, adolescent substance abuse issues, and even physical
ailments. For this Assignment, you examine a PTSD video case study and consider
how you might assess and treat clients presenting with PTSD.
To prepare:
Review this week’s Learning
Resources and reflect on the insights they provide about diagnosing and
treating PTSD.
View the media Presentation
Example: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and assess the
client in the case study.
For guidance on assessing
the client, refer to Chapter 3 of the Wheeler text.
Note: To complete
this Assignment, you must assess the client, but you are not required to submit
a formal comprehensive client assessment.
The Assignment
Succinctly, in 1–2
pages, address the following:
Briefly explain the
neurobiological basis for PTSD illness.
Discuss the DSM-5 diagnostic
criteria for PTSD and relate these criteria to the symptomology presented
in the case study. Does the video case presentation provide sufficient
information to derive a PTSD diagnosis? Justify your reasoning. Do you
agree with the other diagnoses in the case presentation? Why or why not?
Discuss one other
psychotherapy treatment option for the client in this case study. Explain
whether your treatment option is considered a “gold standard treatment”
from a clinical practice guideline perspective and why using gold
standard, evidence-based treatments from clinical practice guidelines is
important for psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners.
Support your
Assignment with specific examples from this week’s media and at least three
peer-reviewed, evidence-based sources. Explain why each of your supporting
sources is considered scholarly. Attach the PDFs of your sources.
By Day 7
Submit your
Assignment. Also, attach and submit PDFs of the sources you used.
