PTSD in clients is the gift that keeps on giving. We as clinicians do not always know the factors that trigger specific behaviors in our clients. Particularly when we are first getting to know them. These client responses can be devastating and prohibit good therapeutic intervention if we are not sensitive to each situation that a client presents. When we do not recognize that they are in a traumatic state, it can impede the interventional services that are being provided.
