Post Traumatic Stress Disorder pdf 2020

PTSD is a disorder that can occur after a trauma has occurred. That is, a person who has experienced a situation as traumatic can develop this disorder. For example, Marco has been involved in a traffic accident in which his physical integrity has been at risk and since then he frequently re-experiences the accident in the form of memories, images, etc.
