Joshua Childrens Foundation



Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD- is an anxiety disorder that is triggered by a person's memories of a traumatic event. This event could be one in which this person was directly affected or an event that is witnessed.

PTSD commonly affects survivors of traumatic events such as sexual child abuse, rape, war, physical assault, torture, a natural disaster. Also could be from an automobile accident, airplane crash, a hostage situation or a death camp. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is common in war veterans. It is also prevalent among those who experienced the death camps in World War II. It also can affect those who witness traumatic events or situations.

Many who have been sexually abused as children experience post traumatic stress disorder.

Post traumatic stress disorder can last for many years after the event(s). And similar events or circumstances can re-trigger the trauma of prior events.
