Course description

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 Diploma 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.

NOTE: The information contained within this course does not act a replacement for professional medical care. An individual who suspects they may have PTSD, should immediately go to see their doctor to have a formal assessment. If you suspect that someone you know has PTSD, then encourage them to go see their doctor.
