Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Project

Since 1999, the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Project has provided training and support to professionals with adolescents in the state of Pennsylvania. The education of professionals working with juveniles is a very high priority of the project. By educating police, probation officers, teachers, residential treatment facilities, juvenile court masters and judges in the knowledge of PTSD, appropriate placements can occur and early detection of the diagnosis certainly can assist the youth in treatment.
