Post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD) is a mental health condition that is as a result of experiencing or witnessing terrifying events. Many people who go through traumatic events develop difficulties in copying or adjusting for a while, but it doesn’t necessary mean that they are suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder. However, if the symptoms worsen or last for months or years and interfere with a person’s normal functioning, chances are that it is Post-traumatic stress. (Wilson, 2012, p. 12). The paper seeks to focus on the symptoms, bio-psychological explanations, and the methods used in treating Post-traumatic stress disorder.
