Course Description:  Research in the area of PTSD has noticed a increase in recognition of a subtype of PTSD that includes symptomology consistent with dissociation. There is limited knowledge of how the symptoms, characterized by depersonalization (DP) and derealization (DR) and other PTSD symptoms are associated. This advance one hour course aims to explore the association of depersonalization, derealization and PTSD utilizing a network perspective.
