NRNP 6640-14 Psychotherapy With Trauma

Disorders resulting from trauma are significantly different from other psychiatric mental
health issues. Unlike disorders such as schizophrenia or major depressive disorder,
trauma-related disorders do not occur randomly in the population. Instead, trauma is
something that occurs as a result of the lived experience of a traumatic event. According to
the National Center for PTSD, more than half of the population will experience trauma
during their lifetime (National Center for PTSD, 2010). Although most people will recover
from the trauma on their own, some require therapeutic interventions. While there are
medications that can help individuals with trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder
(PTSD), the foundation of treatment continues to be psychotherapy.
This week, as you explore psychotherapy with trauma, you assess clients presenting with
posttraumatic stress disorder. You also examine therapies for treating these clients and
consider potential outcomes.
