Diagnosis of Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
by Jan Gysi
People with complex post-traumatic stress disorder often find themselves in a pattern of loss of control, helplessness, and dependency. A therapy that focuses on individual symptoms such as depression or a “simple” post-traumatic stress disorder often does not do them justice. Even more so when the wrong diagnosis is made due to false assumptions or a lack of information.
What all must be ensured for the diagnosis to be made: is there a threat of intrafamilial or external violence? Is existential stability guaranteed during therapy? Are there investigations of legal proceedings in the background? With brilliantly structured overviews, this book helps even experienced diagnosticians to keep track of the variety of diagnostic options to be considered or ruled out and not to overlook anything.
