This is a 6-hour presentation designed to assist clinicians with the identification and management of the risks attendant to the diagnosis and treatment of the posttraumatic and dissociative disorders. The program begins with a review of the symptomatology of Acute Stress Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, the Dissociative Disorders and Borderline Personality Disorder.
