Course Description

New PTSD treatments for mental health professionals

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition triggered by exposure to traumatic events. It involves distressing symptoms like intrusive memories, nightmares, hyperarousal, and avoidance, impacting patients’ well-being significantly. In 2023, significant advancements have emerged in the understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), including new PTSD treatments – bringing new insights and approaches for mental health professionals.

The course begins with a discussion of the staging approach to PTSD, allowing for a more nuanced understanding of PTSD symptoms. We explore stage-based treatment modalities for PTSD so clinicians can manage this disorder in a structured and effective manner. The course will also cover the PTSD algorithm (PTSD Psychopharmacological Algorithm, Bajor et al., 2022), a systematic approach to diagnosing and treating PTSD with greater precision.

The course delves into PTSD comorbidity, examining how PTSD interacts with other mental health conditions like Bipolar Affective Disorder (BPAD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), and Substance Use Disorders. This section underscores the importance of addressing PTSD comorbidities in the context of new PTSD treatments for more comprehensive patient care.

We also tackle the crucial aspect of PTSD and sleep dysfunction, highlighting how disrupted sleep patterns significantly impact PTSD and the potential of new PTSD treatment strategies in this domain.
