Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the Nature of Trauma | Dr. Rami Nader

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a well-known, but often misunderstood psychological condition. This video is a presentation that highlights the nature and characteristics of different types of trauma, the symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and a model for understanding how PTSD works. There is also a discussion about cognitive behavioral treatment (CBT) of PTSD.

Note: This is a repost of a previous video, because the audio quality of that video was quite poor. I have improved the audio and am reposting the video.
