Description: This session focuses on the symptoms of dissociation and hyperarousal. Many behavioral health patient populations are affected by problems in response to abuse, trauma, and neglect. Many of these problems had their origins in childhood, most cause significant distress to social and occupational functioning. A discussion of the diagnostic criteria, as well as proposed changes, is included. These two prevailing symptoms and their gender-specific manifestations will be addressed including treatment indications and care issues when substance abuse is present. Several models for understanding these problems will be described and instruments that may be used to evaluate these problems.
