PTSD

Noun

PTSD also known as post traumatic stress disorder is a disorder caused due to a serious trauma that the person might have faced in his life. This can include sexual assaults, major accidents or abuse. This leaves the person in a long-lasting state of shock in which the person might feel uncomfortable, irritated or scared while remembering the event or visiting familiar places where the trauma took place. Hence, they would desperately try to avoid the things that would remind them of the ill-fated event. PTSD elevates the feelings of shock, fear, guilt and anger and can socially cut the person off from surrounding people. Symptoms are same in young and adult alike and can be treated in teens by procedures such as EMDR, TF-EAP or TF-CBT.
