Evening discusses Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. CPTSD is defined as a psychological stress injury which results from ongoing or repeated diffuse trauma that takes place over a period of time sometimes years, and is often originated in childhood. This makes it different from PTSD which can be caused by a single traumatic event, and the event is always known and validated by others, the news. Even if it is associated to war trauma that spans months or years for a deployment it is still a single known event vs. the kind of ongoing daily trauma that is often forgotten, repressed, denied, or otherwise invalidated by the victim and potential witnesses as well as the abuser. CPTSD is diagnosed by tracking symptoms which can look like other unrelated problems such as drug addiction, depression, anxiety, and emotional flashbacks. There are many cutting edge treatments for trauma disorders and both are highly responsive to treatment and symptoms can be lessened or eliminated completely with the right treatment. EMDR, tapping and other alternatives to straight talk therapy have been highly effective.
