Week 9 Assignment NRNP 6645

To prepare:

· Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide about diagnosing and treating PTSD.

· View the media  Presentation Example: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and assess the client in the case study. 

· For guidance on assessing the client, refer to Chapter 3 of the Wheeler text.

Note:  To complete this Assignment, you must assess the client, but you are not required to submit a formal comprehensive client assessment.

1–2 pages, address the following:

· Briefly explain the neurobiological basis for PTSD illness.

· Discuss the  DSM-5-TR diagnostic criteria for PTSD and relate these criteria to the symptomology presented in the case study. Does the video case presentation provide sufficient information to derive a PTSD diagnosis? Justify your reasoning. Do you agree with the other diagnoses in the case presentation? Why or why not?

· Discuss one other psychotherapy treatment option for the client in this case study. Explain whether your treatment option is considered a “gold standard treatment” from a clinical practice guideline perspective, and why using gold standard, evidence-based treatments from clinical practice guidelines is important for psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners.

Support your Assignment with specific examples from this week’s media and at least three peer-reviewed, evidence-based sources. Explain why each of your supporting sources is considered scholarly. Attach the PDFs of your sources.
