Best Practices In PTSD Clinical Care: How To Optimize Recovery After Trauma

Erin Romero, PhD & Lisa-Ann Cuccurullo, PsyD

About 7% of people will develop PTSD in their lifetime, and it is projected that this will remain constant as both civilians, veterans, and active duty service members continue to encounter traumatic experiences. Notably, PTSD is a heterogeneous disorder with its hallmark symptom of avoidance making PTSD difficult for providers to effectively assess and treat.  To support providers this talk will focus on  identifying and assessing for Criterion A stressors and the four symptom clusters of PTSD; recognize the key points of the Clinical Practice Guidelines for PTSD; understand how Measurement Based Care can be utilized to optimize clinical outcomes; and provide National Center for PTSD resources and educational products.
