Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is becoming a more prevalent diagnosis in today’s world. Whether you want to refer to it as PTSD or post-traumatic stress, essentially it involves a set of symptoms that begin after experiencing a trauma
that one is unable to resolve on their own for months or even years after that trauma. The good news is there has been so much growth in the way of treatment for PTSD, and PTSD therapy is shown to be effective in treating symptoms.
