Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Stress Management Treatment in Nashik

  • If someone went through the traumatic experience. It’s normal to feel lots of different emotions, like distress, fear, helplessness, guilt, shame or anger. Happiness seems inappropriate in traumatic situations, but its pretty common. A person feels happy because he/she survived that disaster. That person might feel better after days or weeks, but sometimes these feelings don’t go away. When the symptoms last more than a month, We have to consider Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
  • PTSD occurs after a traumatic event in which the individual believes that he or she is in physical danger. That his or her life is in jeopardy. PTSD can also occur after witnessing a violent or life-threatening event happening to someone else.
  • The symptoms of PTSD usually occur soon after the traumatic event, although, in some cases, the symptoms develop months or even years after the trauma, then it is named as delayed PTSD. ‘Saving Private Ryan’ is a movie based on D Day. So nicely picturized that watching this movie many landed up in having PTSD.
  • PTSD symptoms occur after the traumatic event with fearfulness and re-experiencing symptoms over time again and again or have symptoms of avoidance of all stimuli associated with the trauma that happened and hyperarousal in the form of disturbed sleep, hypervigilance, sudden reactiveness. The symptoms persist for at least 1 month or more and cause clinically significant impairment in functioning or distress.
