World Health Organization WHO, (2013)

Objectives and scope of the document This document was developed to provide recommended management strategies for problems and disorders that are specifically related to the occurrence of a major stressful event.

The scope of the problems covered by these guidelines is: symptoms of acute stress in the first month after a potentially traumatic event, with the following subtypes: - symptoms of acute traumatic stress (intrusion, avoidance and hyperarousal) in the first month after a potentially traumatic event; - symptoms of dissociative (conversion) disorders in the first month after a potentially traumatic event; - non-organic (secondary) enuresis in the first month after a potentially traumatic event (in children); - hyperventilation in the first month after a potentially traumatic event; - insomnia in the first month after a potentially traumatic event; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); bereavement in the absence of a mental disorder.
