This preview shows page 1 out of 1 page.

A very upset 25-year-ld woman comes to you. Her husband has threatened to kill her four-year-old son. Her son is not the child of her husband. Last night her husband was drinking, and her son was bothering him. He hit the boy and gave him a black eye. It is the first time he has hit her son. Usually, he takes his frustrations out on her. She tells you not to tell anyone because she is afraid of what her husband would do if he found out that he had been reported. Trauma-and Stressor-Related Disorders include disorders in which exposure to a traumatic or stressful event is listed explicitly as a diagnostic criterion. These include reactive attachment disorder, disinhibited social engagement disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), acute stress disorder, and adjustment disorders. Placement of this chapter reflect the close relationship between these diagnoses and disorders in the surrounding chapters on anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, and dissociative disorders.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
