Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to create a workshop for service providers who work with veterans who suffer from complex trauma post-traumatic stress disorder (CT-PTSD) and locate a funding source. Since 2001, there has been an expansion as veterans have left the military. An issue facing veterans is how complex trauma interacts with PTSD. The agency chosen for the workshop is Veterans First in Santa Ana. The funding source is the Wounded Warrior Project. The project was designed to measure the skills and knowledge of service providers working with CT-PTSD. The workshop utilized pre and post surveys to monitor workshop effectiveness, provider understanding, and knowledge implementation. Currently, CT-PTSD is an under developed diagnosis that it is not recognized in the latest version of the DSM-5. With the help of workshops such as this, it is hoped that this will become a recognized veteran issue. Keywords: Veteran, Complex, PTSD, Grant Actual submission of and/or funding of the grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
