What Is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder? 

As the name suggests, Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a disorder characterized by trauma. Trauma occurs when the body goes through or witnesses a life-threatening situation. When this happens, the brain releases chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol for survival. This will cause the body to go into fight, flight, or freeze mode for safety. Sometimes, the body will process these chemicals during the event. When this happens, the event just becomes an unpleasant memory. When the chemicals don’t process, it becomes a traumatic memory. Most times, traumatic memories can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder. Signs of PTSD can include:

  • Anger
  • Aggression
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Feeling unsafe
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-isolation
  • Confusion
  • Mood swings
  • Paranoia
  • Shaking
  • Flashbacks
  • Panic attacks
  • Nightmares
  • Sound sensitivity
  • Light sensitivity

It can be difficult to understand PTSD. Each person’s triggers, symptoms, and reactions are different. PTSD causes reactionary behavior that does not match a situation. This happens when a traumatic memory is triggered, causing the body to relive the event in an attempt to process it. Prolonged stress can make PTSD worse and make it more difficult for someone to process an event or calm their nervous system. Unfortunately, many people today often live with increased anxiety and stress, which can more easily trigger traumatic memories and episodes. 

PTSD Therapy

Therapy can be one of the safest, most effective approaches to PTSD. Often, those with PTSD feel isolated and alone in their experience. Opening up to a trauma therapist can be the first step toward healing unprocessed trauma. Trauma therapists provide tools, exercises, and support for clients struggling with PTSD. They may use practices like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing {EMDR) or tools from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help clients increase emotional resilience and decrease trauma triggers. This can help increase stress tolerance, reduce aggression, and balance emotions. Therapists often offer group, individual, and family therapy to support those struggling with PTSD. Sometimes it’s hard for loved ones to understand the day-to-day experiences of someone with PTSD. Working with a trauma therapist can help the whole family reconnect and support one another.
