Transcript of Post Tramatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD develops differently from person to person. While the symptoms of PTSD most commonly develop in the hours or days following the traumatic event, it can sometimes take weeks, months, or even years before they appear.

- Sleep disturbances

- aggressive, reckless, or self-destructive behavior

- hallucinations, illusions, and flashbacks.
Therapy- gradually exposing yourself to thoughts, feelings, and situations that remind you of the trauma

Medication- relieve secondary symptoms of depression or anxiety but do not treat the causes of PTSD.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing- Eye movements and other forms of stimulation are thought to work by “unfreezing” the brain’s information processing system, which is interrupted in times of extreme stress.
