Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Once referred to as ‘Shell Shock” in the first world war the limited understanding of this complex condition led to some soldiers branded as cowards and shot!

Our understanding has developed greatly and more since the Hillsborough Disaster, when the word trauma was used and we became aware of PTSD.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been around, but never fully recognised or understand.  We are now gaining an understanding of this important condition that seems to dominate those working in the areas it has high prevalence.

As we evolve in science we realise how complex mental health is.  This course will develop your understanding and beyond.  Whether you work in the field of mental health, studying a degree or just interested, you will learn about the complexities of PTSD.
