Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is anxiety / fear after a traumatic event such as a serious accident, assault, abuse, terrorist act experienced or witnessed.

Even after a very long time after the incident, there may be difficulties in dealing with thoughts about it. Feelings, thoughts and memories, which are very difficult to control about the incident, can constantly threaten the psychological integrity of the person by reminding themselves. Individuals with PTSD may show symptoms such as avoidance / reluctance to go back to or approach the place where the incident took place. It prevents people from adapting to their daily lives, displaying remembered fragments or remembering memories of this traumatic memory in the past.

Some of PTSD symptoms can be expressed as follows;

  • Nightmares
  • Recurrent traumatic experience
  • High anxiety
  • Feeling of helplessness
  • Isolation / Desire to be alone
  • Unreal thoughts, beliefs
  • Sleep and eating problems

Individuals who have experienced such a way should receive treatment to review their own defense mechanisms and coping skills and restore their psychological health. You can contact MOL Academy for support in this regard.
