Differential diagnosis for clients presenting with trauma histories can be a complex and difficult task requiring a full evaluation of the clinical picture and an understanding of frequently co-occurring disorders for clients who have experienced trauma. Attendees will learn about mental health disorders prevalent in clients with trauma, skills for accurate yet compassionate assessment, common pitfalls in diagnosis, and essential variables to consider when diagnosing this population. Through use of lecture, case studies, and discussion, attendees will learn to diagnose more precisely and ethically, which will enhance the client’s treatment and lead to better psychotherapeutic outcomes.
This course will be held via Zoom and participant numbers will be capped to ensure a personalized learning experience.
