Recognizing and Understanding Complex PTSD


Jeff talks to Patricia Mangones, a nurse practitioner at McLean’s partial hospital trauma program, about complex PTSD. They discuss the ways in which it differs from PTSD, and what clinicians, patients, and loved ones should be aware of both in diagnosing the illness and in the treatment process.

Patricia Mangones, PMHNP-BC, started at McLean Hospital in 2013 as a staff nurse for the Dissociative Disorders and Trauma Inpatient Program. She is a member of the Interdisciplinary Recovery Oriented Practices Committee and has been a preceptor for psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner students.
