Description: Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur after a traumatic event. Approximately 7-8% of people in the U.S. will likely develop PTSD in their lifetime. The effects of PTSD can be devastating and can have emotional, physical and financial effects on the individual and even their loved ones. At the conclusion of this in-service, the aide will understand how PTSD affects the individual and treatment options available. The aide will also learn some strategies for dealing with clients suffering from PTSD.
Convenience: Enjoy the convenience and cost-efficiency of a telephone workshop. There is no travel time involved and no limit to the number of attendees from your agency who may participate at your site through one phone line. All you need to participate is a speaker telephone and a room large enough for your staff. It is a controlled, radio-like environment where you will gather your staff, dial an 800 number, state your verbal password, and you’re connected. You will also be able to participate in a Q&A portion. The teleconference will take place from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. EST., 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST.
