DSM V: New PTSD Criteria

ProposedPTSDCritDSM5a ProposedPTSDCritDSM5b


Some new changes to the criteria for PTSD in the DSM-V for psychiatric disorders.

  • Note that part of the requirements for the PTSD criteria involve avoidance.
  • Also note that trauma is not acknowledged in individuals that are exposed to violent or horrific media images (video games, etc?) but it is recognized in individuals that are indirectly exposed either through work (paramedic, survivors who are tasked to collect body parts, etc.) or closeness to the victim (family member).
