Chapter 39 discusses post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a complicated condition involving dysregulation of multiple neurobiological systems, as well as cognitive, affective, and behavioral domains of functioning, and how applications of the diagnostic criteria to child and adolescent populations in epidemiological studies indicate that it is a common disorder, with symptoms affecting an estimated 8%, and how trauma exposure occurs in approximately two-thirds of all children, and approximately 13 % of those exposed to trauma will develop some post-traumatic stress symptoms.
