This home-study C.E. course includes the book Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans along with the corresponding post-test consisting of a combination of 30 multiple-choice and true/false questions.

C.E. Hours: 10

Synopsis: Since 1990, U.S. Veterans' centers have treated more than 1.6 million PTSD-affected men and women, including an estimated 100,000 from the Gulf War and an untallied total from the Iraq and Afghanistan fronts. Sufferers may experience the traumatic events in flashbacks that may seem as real as when they first occurred. Using first hand accounts, the authors offer insights into the realities of PTSD and combat trauma, and how symptoms may pervade even the most mundane of daily activities and cause sufferers to experience withdrawal, depression, violence, rage, and even suicide.
