National Association for Counselors and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) Webinar (March 2015)
This free webinar is designed to raise awareness of the importance of accurate diagnosis and ethical treatment of patients that experience severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms but may have been treated traditionally across multiple systems for psychotic disorders. These patients may have poor response to anti-psychotic medications and express fear of sedatives. Trauma informed care requires clinicians to be sensitive to such differential diagnoses so that the focus can be on recovery rather than symptom management or subdued central nervous system.
