Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered when someone has faced a trauma outside of his or her normal experiences. Most commonly, this disorder begins about two months after the event that has caused the distress and consists of realistic flashbacks of the experience. People with experiencing PTSD will repeat their traumatic event over and over in their mind until they finally find some sense of understanding. This can be extremely complicated and cause incredible disorientation. Symptoms of someone with PTSD range from apathy and depression to anger and rage. Unfortunately, it is incredibly rare to prevent PTSD, because everyone runs the risk of experiencing a tragedy and even those who have only witnessed tragic events may still be at risk of developing forms of the disorder. However, researchers and doctors have found that people who are more stressed are more prone to experiencing the effects of this disorder. Watch as Dr. James E. Walton, Ph.D., a counseling therapist in Los Angeles, discusses post traumatic stress disorder and how you can help a loved one by listening and caring about their experience.
