NRNP 6640-14 Discussion Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

It is estimated that more than 6% of the U.S. population will experience posttraumatic
stress disorder (PTSD) in their lifetime (National Center for PTSD, 2010). This debilitating
disorder often interferes with an individual’s ability to function in daily life. Common
symptoms of anxiousness and depression frequently lead to substance abuse issues and
even physical ailments. For this Discussion, as you examine the Thompson Family Case
Study in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat clients
presenting with PTSD.
