Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is characterized by symptoms that include intense fear, helplessness, and/or horror that a person experiences following an exposure to a traumatic event. The traumatic event can include an actual or threatened death or a threat to one’s or another person’s physical integrity. Symptoms of PTSD can also emerge when a person learns about an unexpected or violent death, serious harm, or threatened death that was experienced by a family member or close acquaintance. Individuals who display symptoms of PTSD often re-experience the traumatic event, may experience guilt over surviving, avoid stimuli associated with the event, and are increasingly sensitive to outside stimuli. Though many people who experience a traumatic event often find themselves re-living it or experiencing fear, the symptoms persist for more than one month and cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
