A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.

A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.
Feeling or emotion of dread, apprehension, and impending disaster but not disabling as with ANXIETY DISORDERS.
Persons including soldiers involved with the armed forces.
Recurrent seizures causally related to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Seizure onset may be immediate but is typically delayed for several days after the injury and may not occur for up to two years. The majority of seizures have a focal onset that correlates clinically with the site of brain injury. Cerebral cortex injuries caused by a penetrating foreign object (CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, PENETRATING) are more likely than closed head injuries (HEAD INJURIES, CLOSED) to be associated with epilepsy. Concussive convulsions are nonepileptic phenomena that occur immediately after head injury and are characterized by tonic and clonic movements.

Anxiety disorders manifested by the development of characteristic symptoms following a psychologically traumatic event that is outside the normal range of usual human experience. Symptoms include re-experiencing the traumatic event, increased arousal, and numbing of responsiveness to or reduced involvement with the external world. Traumatic stress disorders can be further classified by the time of onset and the duration of these symptoms.

Health status of Persian Gulf War veterans: self-reported symptoms, environmental exposures and the effect of stress. (1/2495)

BACKGROUND: Most US troops returned home from the Persian Gulf War (PGW) by Spring 1991 and many began reporting increased health symptoms and medical problems soon after. This investigation examines the relationships between several Gulf-service environmental exposures and health symptom reporting, and the role of traumatic psychological stress on the exposure-health symptom relationships. METHODS: Stratified, random samples of two cohorts of PGW veterans, from the New England area (n = 220) and from the New Orleans area (n = 71), were selected from larger cohorts being followed longitudinally since arrival home from the Gulf. A group of PGW-era veterans deployed to Germany (n = 50) served as a comparison group. The study protocol included questionnaires, a neuropsychological test battery, an environmental interview, and psychological diagnostic interviews. This report focuses on self-reported health symptoms and exposures of participants who completed a 52-item health symptom checklist and a checklist of environmental exposures. RESULTS: The prevalence of reported symptoms was greater in both Persian Gulf-deployed cohorts compared to the Germany cohort. Analyses of the body-system symptom scores (BSS), weighted to account for sampling design, and adjusted by age, sex, and education, indicated that Persian Gulf-deployed veterans were more likely to report neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiac, dermatological, musculoskeletal, psychological and neuropsychological system symptoms than Germany veterans. Using a priori hypotheses about the toxicant effects of exposure to specific toxicants, the relationships between self-reported exposures and body-system symptom groupings were examined through multiple regression analyses, controlling for war-zone exposure and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Self-reported exposures to pesticides, debris from Scuds, chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents, and smoke from tent heaters each were significantly related to increased reporting of specific predicted BSS groupings. CONCLUSIONS: Veterans deployed to the Persian Gulf have higher self-reported prevalence of health symptoms compared to PGW veterans who were deployed only as far as Germany. Several Gulf-service environmental exposures are associated with increased health symptom reporting involving predicted body-systems, after adjusting for war-zone stressor exposures and PTSD.  (+info)

Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of cardinal posttraumatic stress symptoms in school-age children. (2/2495)

OBJECTIVES: This report examines the reliability and validity of Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of the cardinal symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHODS: We measured exposure to community violence through the reports of children and their parents and then administered Darryl to a sample of 110 children aged 7 to 9 residing in urban neighborhoods with high crime rates. RESULTS: Darryl's reliability is excellent overall and is acceptable for the reexperiencing, avoidance, and arousal subscales, considered separately. Child reports of exposure to community violence were significantly associated with child reports of PTSD symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Darryl possesses acceptable psychometric properties in a sample of children with frequent exposure to community violence.  (+info)

Increased postwar symptoms and psychological morbidity among U.S. Navy Gulf War veterans. (3/2495)

To investigate reports on war-related morbidity, 527 active-duty Gulf War veterans and 970 nondeployed veterans from 14 Seabee commands were studied in 1994 with a questionnaire, sera collection, handgrip strength, and pulmonary function testing. The questionnaire assessed postwar symptoms, war exposures, and screened for chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychological symptoms suggesting neurosis (Hopkins Symptom Checklist). Sera were tested with four nonspecific reactant assays: C-reactive protein, transferrin, ferritin, and haptoglobin. Gulf War veterans reported a higher prevalence for 35 of 41 symptoms, scored higher on psychological symptom scales, were more likely to screen for post-traumatic stress disorder, had lower handgrip strength, and had higher serum ferritin assay results. Numerous comparisons of these morbidity outcomes with 30 self-reported exposures demonstrated many associations, but no unique exposure or group of exposures were implicated. Morbidity data are consistent with other postwar observations, but the etiology for morbidity findings remains uncertain.  (+info)

Neuroendocrine and psychophysiologic responses in PTSD: a symptom provocation study. (4/2495)

Biological research on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has focused on autonomic, sympatho-adrenal, and hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis systems. Interactions among these response modalities have not been well studied and may be illuminating. We examined subjective, autonomic, adrenergic, and HPA axis responses in a trauma-cue paradigm and explored the hypothesis that the ability of linked stress-response systems to mount integrated responses to environmental threat would produce strong correlations across systems. Seventeen veterans with PTSD, 11 veteran controls without PTSD, and 14 nonveteran controls were exposed to white noise and combat sounds on separate days. Subjective distress, heart rate, skin conductance, plasma catecholamines, ACTH, and cortisol, at baseline and in response to the auditory stimuli, were analyzed for group differences and for patterns of interrelationships. PTSD patients exhibited higher skin conductance, heart rate, plasma cortisol, and catecholamines at baseline, and exaggerated responses to combat sounds in skin conductance, heart rate, plasma epinephrine, and norepinephrine, but not ACTH. The control groups did not differ on any measure. In canonical correlation analyses, no significant correlations were found between response systems. Thus, PTSD patients showed heightened responsivity to trauma-related cues in some, but not all, response modalities. The data did not support the integrated, multisystem stress response in PTSD that had been hypothesized. Individual response differences or differing pathophysiological processes may determine which neurobiological system is affected in any given patient.  (+info)

Posttraumatic stress in children following acute physical injury. (5/2495)

OBJECTIVE: To prospectively assess the presence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in children hospitalized following acute physical injury. The focus was identification of the incidence of PTSD, PTSD symptoms, and exploration of factors associated with development of PTSD symptoms and disorder. METHOD: Forty children ages 8-17 were interviewed approximately 1 month following a serious injury and assessed for PTSD, pretrauma behavior problems, levels of peritraumatic fear, and posttraumatic thought suppression. RESULTS: Twenty-two and a half percent of participants met DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for PTSD; 47.5% met criteria for at least two of the three PTSD symptom clusters. Greater thought suppression was associated with increased symptoms of PTSD, as were the child's peritraumatic fear response and pretrauma internalizing behaviors. CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that many children who have been hospitalized for physical trauma may be experiencing clinically significant PTSD symptomatology and may benefit from psychological as well as medical intervention.  (+info)

Post-traumatic stress reactions following motor vehicle accidents. (6/2495)

Despite improvements in road conditions, vehicle safety and driver education, over 3 million persons are injured in motor vehicle accidents each year. Many of these persons develop post-traumatic stress symptoms that can become chronic. Patients with post-traumatic stress disorder experience disabling memories and anxiety related to the traumatic event. Early identification of these patients is critical to allow for intervention and prevent greater impairment and restriction. The family physician is in an ideal position to identify, treat or refer patients with traumatic responses to traffic accidents. The physician's awareness of patient characteristics and pre-accident functioning allows him or her to critically evaluate symptoms that may begin to interfere with the resumption of daily activities.  (+info)

Structural roles of acetylcholinesterase variants in biology and pathology. (7/2495)

Apart from its catalytic function in hydrolyzing acetylcholine, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) affects cell proliferation, differentiation and responses to various insults, including stress. These responses are at least in part specific to the three C-terminal variants of AChE which are produced by alternative splicing of the single ACHE gene. 'Synaptic' AChE-S constitutes the principal multimeric enzyme in brain and muscle; soluble, monomeric 'readthrough' AChE-R appears in embryonic and tumor cells and is induced under psychological, chemical and physical stress; and glypiated dimers of erythrocytic AChE-E associate with red blood cell membranes. We postulate that the homology of AChE to the cell adhesion proteins, gliotactin, glutactin and the neurexins, which have more established functions in nervous system development, is the basis of its morphogenic functions. Competition between AChE variants and their homologs on interactions with the corresponding protein partners would inevitably modify cellular signaling. This can explain why AChE-S exerts process extension from cultured amphibian, avian and mammalian glia and neurons in a manner that is C-terminus-dependent, refractory to several active site inhibitors and, in certain cases, redundant to the function of AChE-like proteins. Structural functions of AChE variants can explain their proliferative and developmental roles in blood, bone, retinal and neuronal cells. Moreover, the association of AChE excess with amyloid plaques in the degenerating human brain and with progressive cognitive and neuromotor deficiencies observed in AChE-transgenic animal models most likely reflects the combined contributions of catalytic and structural roles.  (+info)

Neural correlates of memories of childhood sexual abuse in women with and without posttraumatic stress disorder. (8/2495)

OBJECTIVE: Childhood sexual abuse is very common in our society, but little is known about the long-term effects of abuse on brain function. The purpose of this study was to measure neural correlates of memories of childhood abuse in sexually abused women with and without the diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHOD: Twenty-two women with a history of childhood sexual abuse underwent injection of [15O]H2O, followed by positron emission tomography imaging of the brain while they listened to neutral and traumatic (personalized childhood sexual abuse events) scripts. Brain blood flow during exposure to traumatic and neutral scripts was compared for sexually abused women with and without PTSD. RESULTS: Memories of childhood sexual abuse were associated with greater increases in blood flow in portions of anterior prefrontal cortex (superior and middle frontal gyri-areas 6 and 9), posterior cingulate (area 31), and motor cortex in sexually abused women with PTSD than in sexually abused women without PTSD. Abuse memories were associated with alterations in blood flow in medial prefrontal cortex, with decreased blood flow in subcallosal gyrus (area 25), and a failure of activation in anterior cingulate (area 32). There was also decreased blood flow in right hippocampus, fusiform/inferior temporal gyrus, supramarginal gyrus, and visual association cortex in women with PTSD relative to women without PTSD. CONCLUSIONS: These findings implicate dysfunction of medial prefrontal cortex (subcallosal gyrus and anterior cingulate), hippocampus, and visual association cortex in pathological memories of childhood abuse in women with PTSD. Increased activation in posterior cingulate and motor cortex was seen in women with PTSD. Dysfunction in these brain areas may underlie PTSD symptoms provoked by traumatic reminders in subjects with PTSD.  (+info)

Patients can develop post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, after a traumatizing event, such as war, a natural disaster or a personal attack. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) notes that patients with this anxiety disorder have symptoms from three categories for at least one month. Learn about the three groups of symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder: re-experiencing, avoidance and hyperarousal.
BACKGROUND: Some studies suggest that early psychological treatment is effective in preventing chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but it is as yet unclear how best to identify trauma survivors who need such intervention. This prospective longitudinal study investigated the prognostic validity of acute stress disorder (ASD), of variables derived from a meta-analysis of risk factors for PTSD, and of candidate cognitive and biological variables in predicting chronic PTSD following assault. METHOD: Assault survivors who had been treated for their injuries at a metropolitan Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department were assessed with structured clinical interviews to establish diagnoses of ASD at 2 weeks (n=222) and PTSD at 6 months (n=205) after the assault. Candidate predictors were assessed at 2 weeks. RESULTS: Most predictors significantly predicted PTSD status at follow-up. Multivariate logistic regressions showed that a set of four theory-derived cognitive variables predicted PTSD best
Wars, earthquakes, major traffic accidents, and terrorist attacks may bring about profound spiritual pains, and even cause extreme fear and helplessness for people that have experienced or witnessed these unusual threats or disasters. This persistent and constant mental disorder caused by psychological trauma is termed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Can brain structural damage alter as symptoms improve? As PTSD progresses, brain structure inevitably changes, however, no PTSD symptoms have been clearly described in previous PTSD imaging studies. Understanding the brain areas highly involved in the improvement of PTSD symptoms will assist the judgment of PTSD patient prognosis. Weihui Li and colleagues from the Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, China compared the difference in brain structure in 12 mine disaster survivors with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, 7 cases of improved post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, and 14 controls who experienced the same mine ...

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 5.2 million adult Americans suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). PTSD is an anxiety disorder that is used for severe and ongoing emotional reactions to an extreme psychological trauma. This trauma can include and is not limited to rape, severe physical assault, combat, accidents, witnessing a murder or experiencing a near death experience. Recent literature suggests that suffering from a medical illness such as cancer can also lead to PTSD.. Remember not all people who are exposed to the aforementioned stressors will develop PTSD. In addition, PTSD should not be confused with traumatic stress or acute stress disorder. What differentiates PTSD apart is the severity and duration of the adverse symptoms. Symptoms include the following. 1. nightmares. 2. flashbacks. 3. emotional detachment,. 4. difficulty in sleeping. 5. avoidance of reminders of the incident. 6. loss of appetite, 7. hyper-vigilance. 8. memory loss. 9. excessive ...

Trauma can change us. Even small traumas: a car accident, a confrontation, death of a loved one; can alter our hormones and neurotransmitters, our digestion, our pain. We may notice dreams, intrusive thoughts, headaches, stomach aches, have trouble thinking clearly after such an event. But usually, in time, thoughts of the event fade and our bodies release hormones for restoration and recovery and we return to normal.. But what happens if that trauma is severe or prolonged or repeated such as in war, rape, domestic violence or a natural disaster? It alters our brains. Switches us into survival mode. Stress hormones are released that change our hormones and our neurotransmitters. These hormones affect our relationships, sleep, moods and cause physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, fatigue and increased risks of infection. This is known as Post traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.. The main symptoms of PTSD are intrusive thoughts, mood alterations, exaggerated startle response and ...
The post traumatic stress disorder PTSD arises when the physiological response to stress does not come to its term. This study aims to explore the cognitive, psycho physiological and cerebral mechanisms involved in PTSD, in fear conditioning and face matching tasks, before and after treatment.PTSD patients will be recruited by Pr Jean-Claude Samuelian in his service at the Conception Hospital and by Pr Jean-Michel Azorin in his service at the Sainte Marguerite Hospital (Marseille) and will undergo either CBT or EMDR within those same services. The tasks they will be asked to perform will study the psycho physiological, cognitive and central mechanisms involved in PTSD and its treatment. All in all, 17 healthy controls will be recruited as well as 17 PTSD patients for each of the two treatment group.In terms of perspectives, this study would help isolate neural systems functionally involved in PTSD and its treatment. A better knowledge of those mechanisms would set room for the optimization of ...

Since focusing on the causes, should always be the first step in any discussion about prevention, the relationship between suicide and trauma must be recognized. In light of this relationship, prevention strategies for suicide must be aimed at preventing traumas (such as is caused by childhood abuse and domestic violence), and when trauma does happen, the focus of suicide prevention must be on healing the effects of trauma on the body, mind, emotions and soul.. While many traumatized people experience most or all of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), there is more to PTSD than is usually discussed. I have worked as a trauma specialists since 1999 and now recognize that trauma can wound the soul.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that follows exposure to a traumatic event. Research shows that 10.4% of women and 5.0% of men develop Posttraumatic stress disorder at some point in their lives. The precise reason for the twice greater prevalence of Posttraumatic stress disorder in women is not known, though a combination of biological causes (e.g., hormones) and environmental causes (e.g., gender socialization) are most likely responsible.. A traumatic event is the experiencing or witnessing of actual or threatened death or serious injury. In women the most frequent traumas are childhood sexual abuse, rape, domestic violence, and traumatic labor and delivery.. The symptoms of Posttraumatic stress disorder are divided into three categories. The first is the persistent reexperiencing of the traumatic event. This reexperiencing can take the form of intrusive recollections, recurrent dreams, reliving of the experience, hallucinations, flashbacks, and intense ...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a chronic and debilitating condition that affects up to 6.8% of the United States general population.1-4 This disorder is characterized by specific symptoms that may develop after an individual suffers a traumatic event.3 The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) groups these symptoms into four clusters: intrusion/re-experiencing, avoidance, negative alterations in cognition and mood, and alterations in arousal or activity (hyperarousal).5 Depending on the source, sleep disturbances such as nightmares may be considered either an intrusive or hyperarousal symptom. Sleep disturbances are common in patients suffering from PTSD4-7 and up to 70% of veterans report trauma related sleep disturbances.3 Sleep disturbances can manifest in a variety of ways. Commonly reported sleep disturbances in patients with PTSD include nightmares, anxiety provoking dreams, frequent awakenings, difficulty falling asleep (sleep ...

NIMH. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal in which grave physical harm occurred or was threatened. Traumatic events that can trigger PTSD include violent personal assaults such as rape or mugging, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, or military combat. PTSD can be extremely disabling. Military troops who served in the Vietnam and Gulf Wars; rescue workers involved in the aftermath of disasters like the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.; survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing; survivors of accidents, rape, physical and sexual abuse, and other crimes; immigrants fleeing violence in their countries; survivors of the 1994 California earthquake, the 1997 North and South Dakota floods, and hurricanes Hugo and Andrew; and people who witness traumatic events are among those at risk for developing PTSD. Families of victims can also develop the disorder. Fortunately, through research ...
Note: To use this subtype, the dissociative symptoms must not be attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., blackouts) or another medical condition (e.g., complex partial seizures).. Specify if:. With delayed expression: If the full diagnostic criteria are not met until at least 6 months after the event (although the onset and expression of some symptoms may be immedicate).. To diagnose PTSD within children is extremely difficult for any trained professional, as there are psychological boundaries, maturity and associated factors against the diagnostician. Children will rarely meet all the criteria, as depending upon age, will depend upon the type of behavioral response they may have. An example in young girls, 11+ years of age and promiscuous with sex. An overwhelming majority are found to have endured sexual abuse / assault, thus a behavioral response is promiscuity, usually unknown to the parents.. It has been found within studies that when the assessment of a child take ...

N2 - The neurobiological basis of cancer-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has never been studied. We investigated brain structural alterations and the longitudinal courses in patients with cancer-related PTSD. Baseline scans using magnetic resonance imaging were performed in 14 cancer survivors with PTSD, 100 without PTSD, and 70 healthy subjects. Follow-up scans were performed 2 years later in 76 cancer survivors (PTSD, n = 9; non-PTSD, n = 67). Using voxel-based morphometry, the gray matter volume (GMV) of the cancer survivors with PTSD was compared with the GMVs of those without PTSD and of the healthy subjects. The effects of the ...
The 11(th) edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11; World Health Organization, 2017) proposes a model of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that includes 6 symptoms. This study assessed the ability of a classification-independent measure of posttraumatic stress symptoms, the Impact of Event Scale-Revised (Weiss & Marmar, 1996), to capture the ICD-11 model of PTSD. The current study also provided the first assessment of the predictive validity of ICD-11 PTSD. Former East German political prisoners were assessed in 1994 (N = 144) and in 2008-2009 (N = 88) on numerous psychological variables using self-report measures. Of the participants, 48.2% and 36.8% met probable diagnosis for ICD-11 PTSD at the first and second assessments, respectively. Confirmatory factor analysis supported the factorial validity of the 3-factor ICD-11 model of PTSD, as represented by items selected from the Impact of Event Scale-Revised. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis demonstrated that, ...
Methods: Fifteen subjects with chronic PTSD following occupational health hazards were treated with five sessions of EMDR. They were assessed by psychometric scales and diagnostic interviews before and directly after treatment. SPECT during administration of an individualised trauma script, was performed pre- and post-treatment using 99mTc-HMPAO. After EMDR, the subjects were subdivided into responders (R, n=10) and non-responders (NS, n=5), based on the absence or presence, respectively, of full PTSD diagnosis as assessed by DSM-IV criteria. SPECT and volumetric data (MRI, pre-treatment) analyses were carried out by Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM2) and data were covaried by age and by time elapsed from trauma to SPECT. SPECT data were further covaried by the amount of grey matter normalised by the total intracranial volume ...

This guideline is concerned with the diagnosis, early identification and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as defined in ICD-10 (World Health Organization, 1992), code number F43.1. This disorder is one that people may develop in response to one or more traumatic events such as deliberate acts of interpersonal violence, severe accidents, disasters or military action. The guideline is concerned with the care of people for whom PTSD is the main problem after experiencing a traumatic event. The disorder can occur at any age, including childhood.
A new study appears to show that post-traumatic stress disorder might be prevented by staying awake after exposure to trauma.. A new scientific study by Israeli researchers appears to show that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) might be prevented by staying awake longer after trauma has occurred.. The study, led by Tel Aviv University Professor Joseph Zohar and Ben-Gurion University Professor Hagit Cohen, found that sleep deprivation for a period of six hours after exposure to a traumatic event dramatically reduced the risk of development of PTSD. Four other scientists were involved with the research as well.. The findings of the study were written up in an article entitled Post-Exposure Sleep Deprivation Facilitates Correctly Timed Interactions Between Glucocorticoid and Adrenergic Systems, which Attenuate Traumatic Stress Responses and published in the June 20 issue of the journal Neuropsychopharmacology.. Using experimental rats in a laboratory, the two scientists compared the results ...

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is highly prevalent in substance use disorder (SUD) populations. Because resources for extensive and thorough diagnostic assessment are often limited, reliable screening instruments for PTSD are needed. The aim of the current study was to test two short PTSD measures for diagnostic efficiency in predicting PTSD compared to the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS). The sample consisted of 197 SUD patients receiving residential substance use treatment who completed questionnaires regarding substance use and trauma-related symptoms, all abstinent from substance for 4weeks. The PTSD section of the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview plus (MINIplus) and the Self-Report Inventory for PTSD (SRIP) are compared to the CAPS. Results showed low sensitivity (.58) and high specificity (.91) for the PTSD section of the MINIplus. The SRIP showed high sensitivity (.80) and moderately high specificity (.73) at a cut-off score of 48. The prevalence of PTSD as ...

PTSD is associated with a number of distinctive neurobiological and physiological changes. PTSD may be associated with stable neurobiological alterations in both the central and autonomic nervous systems, such as altered brainwave activity, decreased volume of the hippocampus, and abnormal activation of the amygdala. Both the hippocampus and the amygdala are involved in the processing and integration of memory. The amygdala has also been found to be involved in coordinating the bodys fear response.. Psychophysiological alterations associated with PTSD include hyper-arousal of the sympathetic nervous system, increased sensitivity of the startle reflex, and sleep abnormalities.. People with PTSD tend to have abnormal levels of key hormones involved in the body s response to stress. Thyroid function also seems to be enhanced in people with PTSD. Some studies have shown that cortisol levels in those with PTSD are lower than normal and epinephrine and norepinephrine levels are higher than normal. ...

The aim of this study was to develop guidelines to assist the South African Police Service (SAPS) organisation to provide appropriate interventions for workers diagnosed with work and non-work-related PTSD in the Mahikeng area of the North West Province in South Africa. The study further sought to assist the workers immediate family members to cope with living with a member diagnosed with PTSD. A qualitative research method was used. Data was collected using self-administered in-depth interviews. The study sample comprised of 19 SAPS workers and 23 family members. Data was analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20.0. The Excel computer program was used to identify and analyse common themes.

Adult research suggests that the dissociation criterion of acute stress disorder has limited validity in predicting post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We addressed this issue in child and adolescent survivors (n=367) of road accidents. Dissociation accounted for no significant unique variance in later PTSD, over and above other acute stress disorder criteria. Furthermore, thresholds of either three or more re-experiencing symptoms, or six or more re-experiencing/hyperarousal symptoms, were as effective at predicting PTSD as the full acute stress disorder diagnosis.

During this process your therapist helps you cope with any distress you feel, while identifying any unhelpful thoughts or misrepresentations you have about the experience.. Your therapist can help you gain control of your fear and distress by changing the negative way you think about your experience. For example, feeling youre to blame for what happened or fear that it may happen again.. Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) ...

SEATTLE-August 25, 2009-Researchers working with Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans have found that post-traumatic stress disorder, the current most common mental disorder among veterans returning from service in the Middle East, is associated with an increased risk for thoughts of suicide.. Results of the study indicated that veterans who screened positive for PTSD were four times more likely to report suicide-related thoughts relative to veterans without the disorder. The research, published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress, establishes PTSD as a risk factor for thoughts of suicide in Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. This holds true, even after accounting for other psychiatric disorder diagnoses, such as substance abuse and depression. Veterans who screened positive for PTSD and two or more comorbid mental disorders were significantly more likely to experience thoughts of suicide relative to veterans with PTSD alone.. As many as forty-six percent of veterans in the study experienced ...
Almost 12% of the American soldiers posted in Afghanistan have had suicidal thoughts at least once in their lives.

Study Purpose: The goal of this study was to evaluate the initial efficacy, feasibility, and acceptability of Seeking Safety (SS) treatment in a sample of incarcerated women with comorbid substance use disorder (SUD) and comorbid post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Seeking Safety, a cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy treatment, is a psychosocial treatment for women with comorbid PTSD and SUD and, at the time this study was conducted, it was the treatment with the most efficacy data for this population. SS treatment appears to be a promising intervention for incarcerated women with PTSD and SUD because (1) the treatment targets many of the deficits found in this population that may interfere with their recovery and place these women at risk for reoffending (such as impulsiveness, anger dyscontrol, and maladaptive lifestyle activities), and (2) it teaches skills to manage these problematic behaviors. This study aimed to conduct an open feasibility trial of Seeking Safety treatment in a sample ...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by poor adaptation to a traumatic experience. This disorder affects approximately 10% of people at some point in life. Current pharmacological therapies for PTSD have been shown to be inefficient and produce considerable side effects. Since the discovery of the involvement of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in emotional memory processing, pharmacological manipulation of eCB signaling has become a therapeutic possibility for the treatment of PTSD. Cannabidiol (CBD), a phytocannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa without the psychoactive effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, has gained particular attention. Preclinical studies in different rodent behavioral models have shown that CBD can both facilitate the extinction of aversive memories and block their reconsolidation, possibly through potentialization of the eCB system. These results, combined with the currently available pharmacological treatments for PTSD being limited, necessitated testing
Posttraumatic stress disorder (commonly known as PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder characterized by adverse anxiety-related experiences, behaviors, and physiological responses that results from exposure to an event that causes psychological trauma. Examples of events that could lead to PTSD include the threat of harm or death to oneself or to someone else, or witnessing an event that overwhelms the individuals ability to cope. Diagnostic symptoms for PTSD include flashbacks or nightmares, avoidance of associated stimuli, insomnia, extreme anger or sadness, and hyper-vigilance. These symptoms must last longer than one month and cause significant impairment in the individuals everyday life to distinguish it from an acute stress disorder.. The first reports of PTSD were in the early 19th century when military medical doctors started diagnosing soldiers with exhaustion after the stress of battle. The only treatment for this exhaustion was to remove these soldiers from active duty until ...
Post-traumatic stress disorder (childbirth onset) is a debilitating condition affecting between 1 - 6% of women in developed countries (Ayers, 2008; as cited in Stramrood et al, 2012). It is important for women of childbearing years to receive treatment in a timely manner to reduce current suffering and to avoid a cycle of pain that might carry over into the next generation.. A traumatic experience during a previous birth can set up a womans subsequent pregnancy as a trigger for recurring symptoms. During the subsequent pregnancy, women may experience intrusive flashbacks, high anxiety about the upcoming birth, have an over-riding desire to schedule a cesarean section, have an increased risk for developing a perinatal mood disorder, and experience ambivalence about her unborn baby thus interfering with bonding and attachment before and after the birth (Stramrood et al, 2012)..
