What is PTSD?

For years, society referred to the disorder as “shell shock” in those returning home from war or other combat. When discussing PTSD, it was only in terms of war. Today, we know that the disorder isn’t limited to combat. Almost anyone could find themselves in need of PTSD Therapy should they experience or have someone recount details of a traumatic event. In fact, an estimated one in 11 people receives a diagnosis of PTSD within their lifetime.

 

PTSD often develops after someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. While the cause is different for everyone, common reasons include:

  • War or combat
  • Physical attack
  • Severe accident
  • Natural disaster
  • The death of a family member or loved one.
