Horowitz Impact of Event Scale – Revised: An assessment of posttraumatic stress in older adults

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect an older adult(s) coping ability and sense of well-being; it is often difficult to discern, and may surface as a physical complaint with no immediately identifiable medical cause. The DVD shows how to apply the revised Horowitz Impact of Events Scale to measure response to trauma so underlying issues can be addressed. The DVD also documents how to identify risk factors, and establish appropriate treatments — including cognitive behavioral, exposure, and solution-focused therapies. (Part of a 28-DVD training series).
