Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other Post Trauma Responses may manifest after witnessing a very stressful event. Events that lead to PTSD and other related stress disorders tend to include those typified by illness, serious injury, or threat of death personally or to those who you know or have contact with.

Traumatic events are characterized by something that is terribly frightening that leaves you feeling hopeless, helpless and out-of-control of the unfolding incidents.

Approximately 60% of men and 50% of women will encounter at least one trauma or traumatic event in the course of their lifetime. Women are more at risk of exposure to childhood sexual abuse or a sexual assault later in life; while men are more inclined to experience war combat, physical violence, natural disaster, accident or to witness another person’s death or serious injury.

Although exposure to a traumatic event is relatively common only 7-8% of the general population is diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder throughout their life-time.
