In this program we'll learn the symptoms of PTSD, how PTSD is diagnosed and the recovery process of PTSD. Disturbing dreams, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, mental or physical distress, and feeling emotionally numb are some of the symptoms people experience when they have lived through a traumatic event such as combat, terrorist attacks, child sexual or physical assault, harassment, serious accidents, or natural disasters. After the event, a person may feel scared, confused, or angry; such as in combat, a veteran could have experienced or witnessed an event that made them fear for their life and feel helpless, perhaps even feel survivor's guilt. These strong emotions caused by the horrific event create changes in the brain that may result in PTSD. If not addressed, it will affects one's life in painful ways.
