Overthinking on trauma makes kids prone to developing PTSD



New Delhi, Oct 20 (ANI): While trauma in itself can pose risk to a child’s healthy development, overthinking on such events makes the kid more prone to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), says a recent study.If they think their reaction to traumatic events is not normal, they become more likely to develop PTSD, the study published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, has found. Children begin down this route when they have trouble processing their trauma and perceive their symptoms as being a sign that something is seriously wrong. While most children recover well after a traumatic event, some go on to develop PTSD that may stay with them for months, years, or even into adulthood. Researchers worked with over 200 children aged between eight and 17 who had attended a hospital emergency department following a one-off traumatic incident. These included events such as car crashes, assaults, dog attacks, and other medical emergencies.
