What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
Many individuals are often unable to cope with traumatic life-threatening experiences. These may include sexual abuse, disasters, accidents, physical assault, death of a loved one, and combat events.
It’s difficult to deal with such events as they can be emotionally overwhelming, mentally disturbing, and inherently frightening. They may set-off reactions that change the body’s normal physical & psychological defense mechanism against stress and anxiety. These changes in the biological responses may last for months and sometimes even years, if left untreated. This condition is what we call Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
PTSD can happen to anyone at any age. However, studies show that women are more susceptible to it. In the United States, 1 in 10 women suffer from PTSD. If your trauma is interfering in your every day life, call us today for a complimentary consultation and assessment.
