PTSD: Community Health Considerations


Understanding the diagnostic criteria for PTSD can be challenging, especially for people whose trauma affects  them but may not meet a “clinical” level. This presentation focuses on how we can respect various trauma  experiences while providing care that honors the role that trauma may play in our participants’ lives. This presentation supports community health workers in understanding how they can best approach and support  people affected by trauma in achieving their health and life goals.

Registration is through the Delaware Learning portal, which is open to all, although you must create an account.


  • To describe the challenges associated with the diagnosis of PTSD for community health workers
  • To promote deeper understanding of how trauma can affect participants’ access and utilization of  community health services
  • To offer strategies, tips, and scripts re: how to support people in transcending their trauma experience  toward improved socio-emotional and physical health.
