Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Assessment
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects about 8% of men, and 20% of women following a traumatic event. Traumatic events can include things like car accidents, natural disasters, industrial accidents, combat, sexual assault, or being the victim of a crime.
Providers at STLCCH are skilled diagnosticians and can identify when PTSD is present or if other symptoms may be overlapping.
We are also equipped to identify cases of symptom exagerration or magnification; our focus is on accurate and valid diagnosis.
