Disorder: Every year, millions of Americans are affected by both natural and human-caused
disasters. Such stressors place survivors at risk of behavioral and emotional readjustment
problems. PTSD is one of the enduring consequences of traumatic experiences. Such experiences
are quite common and have been identified throughout recorded history.
Most disaster survivors
only experience mild, normal stress reactions, and disaster experiences may even promote
personal growth and strengthen relationships. However, as many as one in three disaster
survivors experience some severe stress symptoms, which may lead to lasting PTSD, anxiety
disorders, or depression.
Those who assist survivors
of traumatic events often ask themselves such questions as, What symptoms should
I look for? What can I do to help? and, How should I answer the questions
of children? If youve asked yourself these and other questions, this discussion
is for you.
