About the Course:
This course reviews a study of the prevalence rates and risk factors for the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in parents following their child’s single-event trauma. Parents of children who experience trauma may develop PTSD which impacts both parent and child functioning. This course reviews a meta-analysis of the literature and discusses the rates of PTSD, as well as the factors related to the development of PTSD, including pre-trauma factors, trauma-related variables, and demographic factors for both parent and child. Additionally, this study discusses the factors relating to the parent’s post-traumatic cognition, psychological functioning, and coping strategies. A discussion of the implications of these findings is also discussed.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Parents Following Their Child’s Single-Event Trauma created by Lucy A. Wilcoxon, PhD., Richard Meiser-Stedman, PhD, and Aaron Burgess , PhD. in 2021.
