This CE test is based on the book “Assessment-Based Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorders” (2011, 70 pages), which fills a unique need for clinicians. In less than 55 pages, unburdened by excessive verbiage or examples, it provides assessment measures and clear decision trees for empirically-based practice. It includes the thoughts and emotional experiences commonly caught up in processing the memories of traumatic events, and provides approaches for initial assessment, establishing supportive frameworks, exploring meanings, and improving coping skills.
