Module 16: Guide to Understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

We know PTSD is not limited to emergency responders and military personnel. Teachers, medical care/treatment workers, retail workers and anyone who witnesses a traumatic event may succumb to PTSD. Those that have experienced childhood trauma, sexual assault, and/or domestic violence may also develop PTSD.
