This workshop will provide practical guides to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSD. It will initially overview recent changes in diagnostic definitions in the wake of DSM-5. It will then identify practical issues needing to be addressed when assessing trauma-exposed patients, as well as describing current assessment tools for diagnosing PTSD. Current evidence for treatment of PTSD will then be reviewed, with an emphasis on practical applications of exposure therapy and cognitive restructuring. The workshop will also address the issue of Complex PTSD, and the specific assessment and treatment associated with this new variant of PTSD. Obstacles to treatment will be identified, and possible means to deal with difficult cases discussed.
