PTSD Trama


Post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, is an anxiety disorder associated with the experience of a serious traumatic event. Diagnostic symptoms include re-experiencing the original trauma through flashbacks or nightmares, avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma, and increased arousal such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, anger, and hypervigilance.

Formal diagnosis requires the symptoms to last more than one month and cause significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. See the research here:
