PTSD: A Guide to the Basics


How Hypnotherapy Can Help


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a term bandied about, usually focused on wartime experiences of veterans and those in the armed forces. But what about those being flooded out in the Southeast, experiencing earthquakes in California, watching fires race quickly downhill in the Southwest or even reliving the terror of 9/11 through the media? PTSD affects not only those experiencing floods, fires, tornados, earthquakes and hurricanes, but includes victims of car accidents, robberies, fear of nuclear disaster, physical and sexual abuse and much more.
