PTSD – Did You Know?


PTSD (Posttraumatic-Stress-Disorder is diagnosed after a person experiences symptoms for at least one month following a traumatic even; however, symptoms may not appear for even years later. This applies to adults, adolescents’ and even children. The disorder is characterized by three main types of symptoms:
++ Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmare.
++Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma.
++Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating, feeling jumpy, and being easily irritated and angered.

(Anxiety and Depression Association of American)

“The inability to get something out of your head is a signal that shouts, “Don’t forget to deal with this!” As long as you experience fear or pain with a memory or flashback, there is a lie attached that needs to be confronted. In each healing step, there is a truth to be gathered and a lie to discard.” » Christina Enevoldsen

Our presenter is Jennifer Hilton, Director of Training and Technology, WestCare Foundation Professional Services. WestCare is a national renowned behavioral healthcare center.
