Learn About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the condition, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course teaches students about how it occurs, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and the various treatment techniques available.

This course is also designed to help you on your way towards working within this area.

Separated into 2 distinct sections, the 1st section of this course provides information about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and what those with the condition can do to lessen its effects on their lives. The 2nd section of the course teaches students about the various treatment methods available and the training pathways you can follow to become a therapist working with those who have PTSD.

There is a lot that is misunderstood about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that this course hopes to clarify. Students will be provided with relevant facts that explain who can get the condition and how, a description of the symptoms affiliated with PTSD, and what to expect from a diagnosis.

Thankfully there is now a wide range of treatments available to sufferers of PTSD, with options including clinical, medical, and complementary treatments. This course guides students through a number of treatments, explaining the differences and benefits of each. In addition, there are also a number of self-help activities, which will also be discussed, that have proven to significantly ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Even with the various treatments and self-help practices available to them, it can still be very difficult for someone afflicted by PTSD to engage with the world around them. The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course describes practical steps that can be taken by an individual, to become more involved with friends, family, the workplace, and society as a whole.

As mentioned earlier, students will be exposed to the role of a therapist working with those with PTSD. This includes understanding the process of diagnosis and typical treatment plans, as well as understanding what the role involves, the skills needed, and training pathways. Although there are many different specialists working to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD in their patients, this course goes into detail about 3 specific areas: Trauma-Informed Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to teaching students about the role of therapists and the types of treatments that can be provided, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course also discusses the routes that can be followed to become an expert in the area of PTSD. This also includes how to go about starting your own practice, discussing both the practical aspects and considerations you would need to make before setting up on your own.

Who would benefit from the course?

This course will provide anyone who wants to understand the condition better and the treatments available, with an incredible source of information. This could be to aid yourself in overcoming the effects of PTSD or to help a friend/family member who has the condition.

The course can also be taken by those who are interested in pursuing a career caring for those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and would like more information on how the condition is treated and the pathways they can take to obtain a role in this area.
