Assessing and Treating Post Traumatic Disorder in Survivors of Sexual Assault according to the DSM-5

Jackie Burke

Rape and sexual assault are violent acts and highly traumatic. Survivors often present with a number of physical, psychological and social symptoms which affect their physical and mental health, as well as interpersonal relationships. In the last year, the Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia’s counselling service supported 4000 survivors of sexual assault. The dominant framework through which the mental health field understands trauma is the diagnostic criteria of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) set out on the DSM. In the revised edition of the DSM-V 2013, the criterion of PTSD now includes cognitive and mood distortions as a distinct symptom cluster.
