PTSD Therapy in Florida 

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs in those who have experienced or witnessed an extremely traumatic event like an accident, natural disaster, combat, crime, or terrorist act. It may also arise in individuals who have been threatened with sexual violence, serious injury, or death. 

According to the American Psychiatric Association, PTSD affects about 3.5% of U.S adults every year. Also, one in 11 individuals will be diagnosed with PTSD sometime in their life. Those diagnosed with PTSD may relive the traumatic event through flashbacks and nightmares as well as avoid anything that reminds them of it.

Symptoms of PTSD

In general, there are four types of PTSD symptoms including:

  • Re-experiencing symptoms: These occur when something reminds the individual of trauma and they experience that fear again. The most common examples of re-experiencing symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, and frightening thoughts.
  • Avoidance symptoms: Avoidance symptoms arise when the individual makes a conscious effort to avoid people or situations that remind them of the traumatic event. If they were in a car accident, for example, they might stop driving. 
  • Arousal and reactivity symptoms: These symptoms cause the individual to be on the lookout for danger. They may become easily startled, feel tense, or have trouble sleeping. Angry outbursts also fall into this category. :
  • Mood and cognition symptoms: Mood and cognition symptoms refer to negative changes in feelings and beliefs. An individual may experience memory problems after the traumatic event, feel blame and guilt, have trouble concentrating, or no longer be interested in the activities they used to enjoy.

Causes and Risk Factors of PTSD

PTSD can arise at any age. It’s more common in women than men. Those who have had a troubling childhood experienced feelings of horror or helplessness, and undergone a traumatic event are at risk for it. In addition, individuals who have had minimal support after the event or dealt with extra stress after it may develop PTSD. A history of substance use or mental illness may also increase the risk of this condition.
