Help for children

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Children

There is a growing awareness that traumatic events in childhood are a strong predictor of the likelihood of developing PTSD sometime during the lifetime of the individual.

Without treatment, many people experience symptoms for decades after the traumatic event itself. PTSD may affect individuals of all ages who have experienced terror, threat (or perceived threat) to physical and/or psychological safety, i.e. when their ability to cope was overwhelmed.

Experts estimate that 9 or 10 percent of the population suffer from P.T.S.D.

When victims suffer from a specific traumatic event, for example, child abuse, rape, violent assault etc., the incidence of P.T.S.D. increases to between 60 to 80 percent.
