PTSD is no longer an Anxiety Disorder in DSM-5
PTSD was moved from Anxiety Disorders in the DSM-IV to Trauma and Stressor Related Disorders in DSM-5. (http://www.dsm5.org/Documents/PTSD%20Fact%20Sheet.pdf) or (http://www.ptsd.va.gov/PTSD/professional/PTSD-overview/diagnostic_criteria_dsm-5.asp ). The opening sentence on the Wiki page defines PTSD as an anxiety disorder, then references the DSM-5. PTSD does not exist in the Anxiety Disorders chapter in the DSM-5. This reference is incorrect. PTSD is now a Trauma and Stressor Related Disorder. Doozer0311 (talk) 07:30, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Argue: that it's not a disorder but a symptom
Info about use of mobile apps and internet sites for treatment
I added a small sub-section beneath "management" about the emerging usefulness of smartphone apps and mobile web apps in treating PTSD symptoms. I used the following sources:
Brief, D., Rubin, A., Keane, T., Helmuth, E., Hermos, J., Lachowitz, M., Rybin, D., & Rosenbloom, D. (2013). Web intervention for oef/oif veterans with problem drinking and PTSD symptoms: A randomized clinical trial. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 81(5), 890-900.
Kuhn, E., Greene, C., Hoffman, J., Nguyen, T., Wald, L., Schmidt, J., Ramsey, K., & Ruzek, J. (2014). Preliminary evaluation of ptsd coach, a smartphone app for post-traumatic stress symptoms. Military Medicine, 179(1), 12-18.
- I liked your addition as this is an important new adjunct to treatment (or a treatment in itself). What you wrote needed to be tightened up, e.g., more succinct, remove editorial comment, but I am not sure why it was removed. You might want to converse with the editor who removed it and see what would be needed to add it back, albeit in a refined format. - Mark D Worthen PsyD 23:39, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Post traumatic stress injury
There is a movement to rename PTSD to posttraumatic stress injury. The name change would reduce stigma and acknowledge changed thinking about the nature of PTSD. See http://www.posttraumaticstressinjury.org/ and http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/new-name-for-ptsd-could-mean-less-stigma/2012/05/05/gIQAlV8M4T_story.html.
I wouldn't suggest that the article be renamed, but shouldn't there be a section that acknowledges a debate in the nomenclature and the underlying reasons animating that debate?
- I agree that it is a legitimate topic to include, although I suggest weaving it into the article, rather than creating a separate section. See WP:CRITS. - Mark D Worthen PsyD 23:28, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Non-English addition okay?
I could not find an answer to this question searching through Help. A recent edit (diff) added something in another language, although I can't find exactly where the addition is in the article--it's in a Category list. Is this okay? I am asking primarily for my own edification and so that I do not revert an edit that is actually acceptable. Thanks - Mark D Worthen PsyD 23:22, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Fear, horror, and powerlessness are no longer described in the DSM, but are in the opening sentence of the article. Should this be removed?
Feelings associated with the trauma were part of DSM-IV criteria (Criterion A2), but are excluded from the DSM-5. Perhaps this should be redacted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:16, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Please change "most people don't" to "some people will"
PTSD can be linked to intense feelings of shame and the belief that "something is wrong with me". I request that the "most people don't develop PTSD" wording, which seems to me easy to interpret as implying a social norm that people with PTSD are violating, shaming, be changed to "some people will". PTSD is not a voluntary choice they made and are continuing to make. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:26, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
