I work in an extremely stressful field in which I make life and death decisions every day. Ive been doing it for a long time, and I have good coping mechanisms, but recently my exposure to death and suffering has gone way up. Id like to connect with a therapist in the Northern Virginia area with experience with traumatic stress, who could help me adapt to the demands this is putting on me. Someone experienced in treating members of the military might be helpful, but is definitely not necessary. Mostly Im looking for somebody who has worked with people who encounter a lot of death and need to build appropriate coping skills ...

This review looks at the evidence for postnatal posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Postnatal traumatic stress responses are divided into: appraisal of birth as traumatic, traumatic stress responses (severe symptoms of intrusions and avoidance that do not fulfil criteria for PTSD), and PTSD. Evidence is examined for the prevalence of these types of responses after birth, and for prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal vulnerability and risk factors. Screening tools that could be used are outlined and possible intervention and treatment approaches considered. Various conceptual and methodological issues are also raised.. It is concluded that up to 10% of women have severe traumatic stress responses to birth although only 1-2% of women actually develop chronic postnatal PTSD. The limited research available suggests that a history of psychiatric problems, mode of delivery, and low support during labour put women at increased risk of postnatal PTSD, although there is unlikely to be a simple ...
The aim of the call is to facilitate multinational, collaborative research projects that will address important questions relating to external insults to the central nervous system. The call will accept proposals ranging from understanding basic mechanisms of disease through proof-of-concept clinical studies in humans to neurorehabilitation. The focus of the call is on primary physical insults to the central nervous system, i.e. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). The call covers acute traumatic events over the entire lifespan.. Excluded from this call are research projects on haemorrhage and hypoxia. Moreover, research on psychological/mental consequences of insults, including stress related disorders (e.g. post-traumatic stress disorder) is not part of the present call. Research on neurodegenerative disorders will not be eligible in the present call.. The ERA-NET NEURON funding organizations particularly wish to promote multi-disciplinary work and to encourage ...
The interactions between neural systems in the brain, made up of billions of interconnected cells have been considered sufficient to explain such complex behavioral phenomena as cognition, motivation and emotions. Yet the recent discovery of an equally complex, and evolutionary ancient gut microbial system (made up of 100 trillion bacterial cells comprised of ,1,000 species) living in symbiosis with the host, and the initial preclinical evidence of communications of the gut microbiota with the brain are beginning to challenge the most fundamental paradigms of neuroscience. Indeed, recent reports have suggested that certain organisms may prove to be useful therapeutic adjuncts in stress related disorders such as anxiety and depression. This proposal aims to test the innovative hypothesis that alterations in gut microbial communities play a causative role in human emotion regulation via long distance, vagally-mediated gut to brain signaling. As a first step toward determining if the microbiota ...

Hartman & Medoff, 2012). Therapists know how to help children work through their fear and food aversions through therapy, but unless we recognize the impact those past experiences have had on the entire family, we will not be able to remove the roadblocks to healthy eating that those experiences have caused. In fact, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network estimates that 20% - 30% of families will experience symptoms of lingering traumatic stress due to prolonged medical treatment or life-threatening circumstances to their child (NCTSN, 2015). We find that number consistent with the number of families we see that experience sensations of panic with any fluctuations in intake or weight, or who resort to forcing food out of fear for their childs survival. Without addressing the stress response directly, these emotions will continue to impact mealtimes and the childs ability to eat independently. Results. The results indicate that all 3 are important. Our clinical data indicate that ...

Unlike other forms of psychological disorders, the core issue in trauma is reality. ~Bessel A. van der Kolk, Traumatic Stress: The Effects of Overwhelming Experience on Mind, Body, and Society. One of the things weve been talking about lately in a few of the groups I facilitate, is learning to differentiate between emotional safeness and physical safety.. In other words, the difference between the potential for our feelings to be hurt in some way and our bodies to be harmed, tortured or murdered.. Reading those words, Im guessing some of you may be wondering why we would need to differentiate these things. In so many ways we are all logically aware of the difference between these two very different types of situations. Most of us can look at different events in our own lives and be able to determine in which ones we were in actual physical danger and in which ones the risk was more about being told no, or being wrong, or not feeling heard or understood.. In our logic brain, we can completely ...

Traumatic Stress Disorders: 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.
Background The interaction of the association of dopamine genes, impulsivity and childhood trauma with substance abuse remains unclear. Objectives To clarify the impacts and the interactions of the Catechol -O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene, impulsivity and childhood trauma on the age of onset of heroin use among heroin dependent patients in China. Methods 202 male and 248 female inpatients who meet DSM-IV criteria of heroin dependence were enrolled. Impulsivity and childhood trauma were measured using BIS-11 (Barratt Impulsiveness Scale-11) and ETISR-SF (Early Trauma Inventory Self Report-Short Form). The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs737866 on the COMT gene-which has previously been associated with heroin abuse, was genotyped using a DNA sequence detection system. Structural equations model was used to assess the interaction paths between these factors and the age of onset of heroin use. Principal Findings Chi-square test indicated the individuals with TT allele have earlier age of onset

AU - Talley, N. J.. AU - Saito, Y. A.. PY - 2014/7. Y1 - 2014/7. N2 - Background: The etiology of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is not been fully elucidated, but childhood trauma may disturb the brain-gut axis and therefore be important. Thus, we conducted a family based case-control study of IBS cases and their relatives with the aims to (i) determine the frequency of childhood trauma among IBS cases and controls as well as their relatives, and (ii) assess childhood trauma among IBS cases with affected relatives (familial IBS). Methods: Outpatients with IBS, matched controls, and their first-degree relatives completed a self-report version of Bremner Early Trauma Inventory. Percent of cases and controls with a family history were compared and odds ratios were computed using chi-squared test; recurrence ...
Work-related moral distress (MD) and secondary traumatic stress syndrome (STSS) may be associated with compromised health status among health professionals, reduced productivity, and inadequate safety of care. We explored the association of MD with the severity of STSS symptoms, along with the mediating role of mental distress symptoms. Associations with emotional exhaustion and professional satisfaction were also assessed. This cross-sectional survey conducted in 206 mental health nurses (MHNs) was employed across public sector community and hospital settings in Cyprus. The analysis revealed that MD (measured by the modified Moral Distress Scale) was positively associated with both STSS (measured by the Secondary Traumatic Stress Scale) and mental distress symptoms (assessed by the General Health Questionnaire-28). The association of MD with STSS symptoms was partially mediated by mental distress symptoms. This association remained largely unchanged after adjusting for gender, age, education, ...
The Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS) was established the psychological impact and health consequences resulting from the traumatic impact of: 1) the possibility, or actual use, of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) during combat, acts of terrorism or hostage events; 2) combat, peacemaking, peacekeeping, and operations other than war; 3) natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, or floods; and, 4) more common stress producing events such as physical assaults and motor vehicle, shipboard, or airplane accidents in both the uniformed and civilian communities.
For instance, following a single traumatic incident such as an assault, or at a more global level, following the terrorist attacks on New York on 9/11, and subsequently on the Transit Systems in London and Madrid, a majority of the nation experienced elevation of stress levels, particularly "apprehension." However, some victims experience persistent fear. There is good clinically based evidence that even the most severe fear symptoms will respond to treatment.. According to Edna B. Foa, a renowned international authority on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), people who have been chronically traumatized victims live their lives in a constant state of fear and dread.. The "fear paradigm" is a useful term to describe victims who constantly experience the world as threatening.. While each school in neuro-behavior has a language to discuss fear as a symptom, the Behavioral school was perhaps the first to support its theory with preclinical and primate research data.. While other articles will ...

The investigators propose a prospective single arm pilot cohort study of 100 youth (ages 15-25) to evaluate the feasibility of this project. A convenience sample of subjects will be enrolled on a voluntary basis from those who come to the day care center located in Nyanza, a district of the Southern province, in Rwanda. UYISENGA NMANZI identified 400 youths in Nyanza region, organized in 4 groups, each of them between 160 to 100 youths. Many of those orphans go to school in any school in the country. This situation will be taken into account for the calendar of activities and for organization of the regular interviews and evaluations.. Random selection of the participant will be ensured by choosing study subjects from a list and attributing them an arbitrary number. The random selection will be weighted by the size of the household group across the 4 groups in the Nyanza region. Selection will also be in proportion of sex and age groups. In this manner 100 youth will be picked with 20 backup ...
Look we all have some of these issues in varying degrees. So my response to traumatic stress of my childhood made it harder for me to deal with issues, but it shouldnt matter. SOmeone who has a mental disorder should never be treated the way that we are. Were not monsters, we just have issues that affect our entire life. Like you dont have any of your own. We may not be able to control our emotions or our moods as easily as others, but that by no means makes us terrifying, scary people. Were the same people you liked before you knew. I tell people about my PTSD and Borderline to let them know that I may act strangely and that it has no bearing on them. Its just how I react to stress and generally Ive been triggered by something in the first place. Im trying to be nice, not freak you out or scare you away. When you do get fresked out and scared because of it it is not my fault but your inability to see past the stigma of mental illness. Shame on you, not me ...

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.

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. Many of the more than 4000 people I have helped heal from the effects of trauma have described how excruciating their soul pain and spiritual disconnection is. Most indicate that the soul pain is the most acute aspect of their suffering.. Many who have experienced trauma intuitively ...
