FREE ONLINE COMMUNITY CHAT - PTSD: Signs, Symptoms, & Treatment
Research estimates that 65-90% (or more) of people experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Not everyone who experiences a traumatic event will develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but everyone who experiences a traumatic event does have some post-traumatic reactions that typically disappear within months of the trauma. In this community chat, Hannah Baczynski, PhD, and Lucas Mitzel, LCSW, will define “traumatic event,” share common symptoms of PTSD, and help you determine if you or a loved one may be struggling with a reaction to trauma. In addition, they will discuss effective treatment options for adults and children with PTSD, as well as the pros and cons of each so you and your loved ones can be better informed when seeking help.
