Supernatural & PTSD
Transcript of Supernatural & PTSD
Supernatural is a show about two brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, who hunt creatures of the supernatural. They were raised into it through their father John Winchester after their mother was murdered by a demon. Sam and Dean go through life saving people's lives from these encounters with the supernatural. They have stopped the apocalypse, been to Hell and back, and stopped Lucifer from rising. After Dean returns from Hell he shows signs of post traumatic stress. This is the same as when Sam returns from sharing a cage with Lucifer in Hell for a year. Through their journeys these two brothers have seen a lot of blood shed and have lost every family member and friend they've had.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly known as PTSD, is a mental illness that can develop after a person experiences a terrifying event, either to themselves or a loved one. This event usually includes physical harm or the threat of physical harm to the person. Symptoms of PTSD include re-experiencing, avoidance, and hyper-arousal. For a person to be diagnosed with PTSD they have to experience at least six different symptoms for more than a month. Most treatments for PTSD include "Talk Therapy", Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Restructuring, and Stress Inoculation Training. Another treatment that some doctors suggest for adult patients, along with these, is a prescribed antidepressant.
