What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Therapy:
PTSD is a very real and damaging condition.
It has a far-reaching impact on those who experience it and although many people associate it with military personnel and the horrors of war. PTSD can be experienced by people from all walks of life.
Often these are individuals who feel terribly isolated and who re-live the scenario of their personal traumas over and over as if a waking nightmare. Their emotions may be extreme – deep sadness, depression or extreme anger.
The individual may suddenly find their mind whipped away from the present and dragged unwittingly back into the trauma.
PTSD causes the individual’s nervous system to be constantly on the alert, and by contrast, they may feel totally detached from real life. Often sufferers face conditions such as depression and may even develop substance abuse as a coping mechanism.
PTSD occurs as a result of an experience that is horrifying or terrifying. It can be absolutely anything. It affects people on an individual level. One person may become a broken individual while another who experiences similar is able to make a full recovery.
Just consider the number of people who may be affected by PTSD by having experienced:
Natural disasters are huge causes of PTSD because they have an impact on so many people. If you consider that a hurricane can destroy so many people’s homes and leave them without food and water or even, without money, it’s not surprising that a great many of these people will experience some aspect of PTSD.
PTSD doesn’t always occur as a result of a dramatic event. Anyone can do so when facing an event that is traumatic for him or her on a personal level.
Death of a loved one or someone battling a life-threatening condition could still experience some aspect of PTSD.
In addition, anyone who has suffered from abuse or some sort of violence in their lifetime could experience this condition.
The highest risk for traumas often include the following:
- Rape or sexual abuse in adulthood
- Sexual or physical abuse in childhood
- Domestic violence
- Armed robbery or torture
- Violent acts leading to death
