10 Things Everyone Should Know About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Ptsd)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder used to be called ‘shell shock’. The condition was first recognised in soldiers returning from WW2 who had gone through shocking and overwhelming experiences at war.

Many of these soldiers had strong feelings of grief, Anxiety and anger which wouldn’t go away, had flashbacks of horrific scenes and felt compelled to avoid anything associated with their Traumatic Experiences.

Since then, similar symptoms have been recorded in people who have never seen a battlefield, but who have nevertheless been through traumatic times, and doctors now know to look out for signs of ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder‘ – a severe, ongoing reaction to a psychological trauma.

6. Group Psychotherapy is often used in the treatment of post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and is considered by some experts to be the most beneficial kind of treatment for military personnel and veterans

7. PTSD can be caused by a range of different incidents, including car accidents, violent assault, being taken hostage, military combat, natural or man-made disasters and terrorist attacks

8. Two people could witness the same horrifying event at the same time, one of whom could show no signs of psychological trauma while the other goes on to suffer from full-blown PTSD

9. People suffering from PTSD may be able to make a claim for compensation, which could help with difficulties such as financial concerns due to loss of work
