It is estimated that more than 6% of the U.S. population will experience post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in their lifetime (National Center for PTSD, 2010). This debilitating disorder often interferes with an individual’s ability to function in daily life. Common symptoms of  anxiousness and depression frequently lead to substance abuse issues and  even physical ailments. For this Discussion, as you examine the Thompson Family Case Study in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat clients presenting with PTSD.  
 Post on or before Day 3 an explanation of your observations of the client William in Thompson Family Case Study,  including behaviors that align to the PTSD criteria in DSM-5. Then,  explain therapeutic approaches you might use with this client, including  psychotropic medications if appropriate. Finally, explain expected outcomes for the client based on these therapeutic approaches. Support  your approach with evidence-based literature.
