Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after War.
I will pay for the following article Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after War. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Such individuals include the war veterans, the individuals are exposed to incidences that relate to witnessing the massive loss of lives to incidences of personal injuries.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is categorized as a form of anxiety disorder that results from an emotional trauma that is often associated with threats of death or even a loss of life. PTSD can be as a result of an event or a series of events and it is often associated with symptoms that constantly disturb the patient. Such symptoms include a reminder of the traumatic incidence, an attempt to avoid the memory of the event and sometimes the patient becomes highly aroused. A number of people who experience a traumatizing event have very high chances of developing PTSD (Savoca, 2011). PTSD has an underlying psychological cause that is mainly based on extreme trauma. The situation resulting in the trauma is usually associated with a sense of extreme fear, powerlessness, and horror to the traumatized individual. A fatal, injury, death, or a life-threatening condition to either an individual or others are the most common causes of PTSD especially among individuals engaged in war-like activities such as war veterans (Rosenheck & Fontana, 2007). The proposed research will help in creating awareness of the possible consequences of war-related trauma and how the victims can be helped to prevent the development of PTSD.
War veterans are a group of individuals that have engaged in warfare in various capacities and are likely to have experienced the loss of lives or severe injuries among other frightening incidences. On the other hand, a war veteran may be the only survivor in a war situation hence they develop a certain form of fear that makes it difficult to forget that particular incidence. These traumatizing events make war veterans highly vulnerable to post-traumatic stress disorder (Savoca, 2011). .However, its general prevalence in the population varies in terms of gender. Women are more vulnerable to PTSD after a traumatic event as opposed to men.
