1. Classmate (N.Jon)
Stress is not an uncommon experience for humans. However, how one exhibits or manifests symptoms of stress can vary wildly, even when two individuals experience the same stressor (Flamez & Sheperis, 2015). The Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) recently created a new section titled trauma and stress-related disorders to address such issues. As such, post-traumatic stress disorder was moved from anxiety disorders to the new section. Taking a look at post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in children, I will explain the ways in which gender influences the manifestation of PTSD and provide an example of how that might look. Then I will describe the factor related to PTSD that would be most difficult for me to address as a professional counselor and why.
Post-traumatic stress disorder has undergone many revisions in the DSM-5 and currently can be used to diagnose individuals ages six and up (DSM-5 Bridge Document). There are three criterion that break down into three categories: stress-inducing experiences, symptoms present, and the varying reactions to stimuli (DSM-5 Bridge Document). In order for a diagnosis of PTSD to be given, the individual must have experienced violation, serious injury, or threatened or actual death (Flamez & Sheperis, 2015). In addition, the individual must be experiencing distressing symptoms that cause significant impairment that lasts for at least six months (Flamez & Sheperis, 2015).
