Description:  This class presents some current issues surrounding problems in response to trauma, neglect, and abuse such as PTSD as well as other related symptoms.  We will consider neurological aspects of the response to trauma, neglect, and abuse by reviewing some current literature on the neurobiological impacts. You will learn some of the current thinking about stress responses of dissociation, somatization, and affect dysregulation. There are remarkable differences in stress response between gender and age as well as risk factors that greatly impact the potentiality of co-morbid disorders and even the onset of PTSD. The DSM5 criteria will be described and discussed. Regarding the impact of violence on children, we will include a discussion about how states become traits, particularly with respect to the hyper-arousal and dissociative responses to trauma. Participants will come away from this presentation with more skill in differentiating between PTSD and other disorders such as phobic or adjustment disorders.

Objectives:
1.  Participants will be able to identify at least five neurological indications of the response to violence.
2.  Participants will be able to describe dissociation, somatization, and affect dysregulation.
3.  Participants will be able to describe gender differences, common co-morbid disorders, and risk factors in survivor response to trauma.
4.  Participants will be able to discuss state to trait theory and the neurobiological role of hyper arousal and dissociative responses to trauma.
5.  Participants will be able to discuss the DSM5 criteria for a diagnosis of PTSD.
6.  Participants will be able to contrast phobic problems, adjustment disorders, and PTSD.
