POST-TRAUMATIC ​STRESS
DISORDER (PTSD)

PTSD IS A DISORDER THAT DEVELOPS IN SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED A SHOCKING, SCARY OR DANGEROUS EVENT.

It is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a typical reaction meant to protect a person from harm.
Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they are not in danger.

SYMPTOMS

​​RE-EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

  • Flashbacks—reliving the trauma over and over, including physical symptoms like a racing heart or sweating
  • Bad dreams
  • Frightening thoughts
  • Re-experiencing symptoms may cause problems in a person’s everyday routine. The symptoms can start from the person’s own thoughts and feelings. Words, objects, or situations that are reminders of the event can also trigger re-experiencing symptoms.

AVOIDANCE SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

  • Staying away from places, events, or objects that are reminders of the traumatic experience
  • Avoiding thoughts or feelings related to the traumatic event
  • Things that remind a person of the traumatic event can trigger avoidance symptoms. These symptoms may cause a person to change his or her personal routine. For example, after a bad car accident, a person who usually drives may avoid driving or riding in a car.

AROUSAL AND REACTIVITY SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

  • Being easily startled
  • Feeling tense or “on edge”
  • Having difficulty sleeping
  • Having angry outbursts
  • Arousal symptoms are usually constant, instead of being triggered by things that remind one of the traumatic events. These symptoms can make the person feel stressed and angry. They may make it hard to do daily tasks, such as sleeping, eating, or concentrating.

COGNITION AND MOOD SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

  • Trouble remembering key features of the traumatic event
  • Negative thoughts about oneself or the world
  • Distorted feelings like guilt or blame
  • Loss of interest in enjoyable activities
  • Cognition and mood symptoms can begin or worsen after the traumatic event, but are not due to injury or substance use. These symptoms can make the person feel alienated or detached from friends or family members. 

It is natural to have some of these symptoms after a dangerous event. Sometimes people have very serious symptoms that go away after a few weeks. This is called acute stress disorder, or ASD. When the symptoms last more than a month, seriously affect one’s ability to function, and are not due to substance use, medical illness, or anything except the event itself, they might be PTSD. Some people with PTSD don’t show any symptoms for weeks or months. PTSD is often accompanied by depression, substance abuse, or one or more of the other anxiety disorders.

LEARN EFFECTIVE SKILLS TO
SELF-REGULATE YOUR EMOTIONS

25+ years of scientific studies prove that unmanaged emotions compromise the quality of your day-to-day life,
limiting mental clarity, productivity, adaptability to life´s challenges and enjoyment of its gifts.

Self-regulation of our emotions during our daily activities and connections produces
measurable benefits to our own health and others’ well-being.

Research and experience show that the emotional system can be regulated. This of course, requires practice of effective skills, in much the same way that it takes techniques and practice to learn and develop mental or athletic skills.
