All DVDs featuring Dr van der Kolk quickly enter our best-sellers list.

Today you can buy another one:


Every year, there are ten times as many children reported to be victims of domestic violence, neglect and abuse than combat soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan diagnosed with PTSD. However, these children live in a diagnostic void because the current DSM-IV® conceptualization of PTSD does not reflect the symptoms experienced by the vast majority of these children. The lack of proper diagnosis also has profound implications on insurance reimbursement, treatment development and clinical research.
In response to this neglect the National Child Traumatic Stress Network’s DSM-5® Task Force has proposed a new clinical syndrome, DEVELOPMENTAL TRAUMA DISORDER (DTD).
This diagnosis describes the five clusters of symptoms that characterize many children who have suffered repeated trauma in an interpersonal context:
Affect and impulse dysregulation
Disturbances of attention, cognition, and consciousness
Distortions in self-perception and systems of meaning
Interpersonal difficulties
Somatization and biological dysregulation.

This presentation by Dr Bessel A. van der Kolk, the world’s leading expert in the field of traumatic stress,  reviews the development of DTD as a diagnosis and its implications for assessment, diagnosis and treatment.

This is our first attempt to join the exciting world of blogging and bring to you all the fresh and hot news about the world of psychology and, of course, about your favourite training company. This is our new enterprise and we are finding our way in this mysterious world of blogging cautiously (but surely...) :-)
We are hoping to move our popular SDS Delegate Debate into this blogging format in the future and looking forward to lively discussions here with you. We are planning to start with publishing already existing SDS Delegate Debates — with comments received from you. Then we'll move to the current news as well as will run new delegate debates there.
Feel free to leave comments to any of the posts — whether they are old debates, the news or new debates. As you can guess — every blogger loves his readers and LIVES for the comments. :-) We are just the same. You don’t need to register in order to be able to comment. You can leave your feedback as “Anonymous”, however, may we ask you to sign you name (or nick) at the end of your comment (even if you are commenting without logging in) so that we know how to address you.
Another useful tool that SDS Blog provides us with is availability of Polls that enable us to find out your views about various subjects. Polls are located on the left panel of the page and updated regularly. Please feel free to vote. You can see the results of each poll by clicking the button "Results".
If you wish to register — nothing can be easier — you just open a Google account — most of you, surely, already use one.
Your comments are read by SDS Consultants regularly and — in many cases — replied to.
The blog is moderated — mainly to protect you and other readers from spam and irrelevant comments.
All posts are tagged — hopefully it'll help you to find your way around there.
