Are you familiar with APA’s Clinical Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Adults? Released earlier this year, the PTSD guideline recommends evidence-based treatments for PTSD and is supported by a comprehensive website of resources. Learn more about the guideline and consider how to apply it to their clinical work.
APA staff psychologist Lynn Bufka, PhD reviews various website features including:
• Information for clinicians on recommended interventions,
• PTSD assessment instruments used in the studies that informed the clinical practice guideline,
• Case examples of treatment interventions, and
• Resources for patients and families to help them understand PTSD, its causes, and its effects and treatment options.
