Ask The Therapist

A family member recently returned from military service in Iraq. We have heard a lot about soldiers experiencing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). What are the warning signs of PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can occur when someone experiences a traumatic or highly stressful event. Even common experiences such as car accidents can trigger PTSD. For our military, PTSD is a particularly troubling condition. On-going exposures to highly stressful and life-threatening events experienced by soldiers are factors in the development of PTSD. The symptoms are complicated and each person’s experiences are unique, but some of the typically signs include nightmares, flashbacks, and frightening thoughts that interfere with daily life. There are several therapies available to help provide relief from the symptoms. Being concerned about your family member is understandable. Support with re-integrating into civilian life can be helpful, even if symptoms of PTSD are not actively present. Contact us for more information about the available treatment options.
