Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a disorder that can occur in someone who has directly or indirectly witnessed or been part of a traumatic event. Those events may have been related to war, acts of terrorism, physical assaults, rape, accidents, or natural disasters. Although the term is often used when discussing combat veterans, it can affect men and women from all walks of life.

Symptoms of PTSD may include any of the following:

  • Repeat unwanted memories and flashbacks of the event

  • Fear or difficulty trusting other people

  • Negative feelings about oneself (shame, guilt, anger)

  • Intentionally avoiding things that may remind someone of the event

  • Angry outbursts or self-destructive behavior

  • Exaggerated responses to loud noises or being touched
