About the Course:
Post-traumatic stress is a common reaction to exposure to trauma in children and adolescents. While some trauma-exposed youth go on to have persistent post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), many children and adolescents who initially have a severe traumatic stress response will undergo a natural recovery. The study presented in this article/course investigated the role of cognitive processes in shaping early reactions of child and adolescents to traumatic stressors and in making the transition to persistent clinically significant post-traumatic stress symptoms (PTSS). Additionally, the clinical and theoretical implications and limitations of the current study will be covered, as well as recommendations for future research.
This course is based on the , A Core Role for Cognitive Processes in the Acute Onset and Maintenance of Post-traumatic Stress in Children and Adolescents created by Richard Meiser-Stedman, PhD, et al. in 2019.
Publication Date:Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry 60:8 (2019), pp 875–884 Mar 2019
