The symptoms of complex post traumatic stress injury (C-PTSD) vary, however; the healthcare industry does not provide treatment for most of these symptoms.  The treatment plan for post traumatic stress disorder is often provided for the diagnosed, but what is interesting is that the treatment designed to help manage symptoms of PTSD, could potentially cause more harm to those who deal with symptoms of complex post traumatic stress injury.  The DSM V currently does not feature a diagnosis criteria for complex post traumatic stress disorder.  However, the DSM V does provide the diagnosis criteria for post traumatic stress disorder, which all healthcare professionals must abide by.  When a treatment plan is conducted by a healthcare provider and their clients who have been diagnosed with PTSD, some of those clients do not receive treatment for complex PTSD due to symptoms which may not be as apparent.  Symptoms for complex PTSD periodically may become obvious to the healthcare professional, however; will not be treated due to the fact that healthcare professionals must adhere to the DSM V diagnosis criteria for PTSD.  Technically, healthcare professionals are doing what they are under oath to do, which is to only notice and treat for symptoms of the diagnosed based from the DSM V.
