Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a chronic condition comprising a range of psychological and physiological symptoms that can affect people of any age.

The pathologic development of PTSD only occurs if the response leading to resolution of the trauma is disrupted in some way.

The main conclusion of biologic research is that exposure to one or more traumatic events in earlier life triggers a chain of mental and biologic events that ultimately lead to prolonged PTSD.

The treatment protocols include both psychotherapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral and exposure therapy.
