Where's the info about CPTSD in the DSM 5?
« on: October 06, 2017, 01:45:42 AM »
Hi guys,

Earlier in the year when I was here, there was a little banner above the forums sharing the news that CPTSD had officially been included in the DSM-5. I need that info for an essay, can anyone share it again here or point me in the right direction? Initial Google searches haven't been very productive.

Thanks in advance

If I'm not mistaken, CPTSD isn't in the DSM 5.
I believe it's going to be included in the ICD-11 which is still in development. I could be wrong though, I'm just going off my terrible memory here. Haha

Aphotic is correct. ICD-11 is under revision now, and wont be out until earliest January 2018 I'm afraid.
Here is an article about it: http://traumadissociation.com/complexptsd
But check the sources if it's an academic paper.

CPTSD is not in the APA's DSM, but will be included in the World Health Org's ICD-11 that was supposed to come out in 2017 but looks like it will be delayed until 2018 - http://www.who.int/classifications/icd/revision/en/
When it comes to trauma, time does NOT heal all wounds. It is deeply embodied in our mind, body & spirit & requires compassionate, knowledgeable treatment & self-care.

If we want more/better trauma informed treatment & services, we must advocate for ourselves when & where we can.

Bessel van der Kolk writes about the omission of C-PTSD in the DSM-5 in The Body Keeps Score.  There is a recording, video I think, of a talk he gave called Trauma and the DSM-5 on the Pesi website.  It sounds like he has been trying to get it in there for years.
