Post by Day 4 a brief comparison of similarities and differences between acute stress disorder (ASD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources including the “Acute Stress Disorder and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder” handout. Reflect on the similarities and differences between ASD and PTSD. Then consider that you have been asked to prepare a pre-deployment PTSD prevention workshop for military health service workers. Consider intervention techniques you might recommend to prevent the development of PTSD in this population.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief comparison of similarities and differences between acute stress disorder (ASD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Then explain two potential PTSD symptoms that could develop for a military health service worker. Finally, describe two intervention techniques you might recommend to prevent PTSD and explain why each might be effective. Be specific.
