Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Not Just for War Veterans

Jill Stoddard

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  

Many victims of domestic violence will develop post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, as a result of witnessing or experiencing serious physical or sexual assault.  The symptoms of PTSD may include re-experiencing the trauma (through intrusive memories, nightmares, or flashbacks), startling more easily, being hyperaware of surroundings, feeling increased irritability or anger, experiencing anxiety or panic when being reminded of the trauma, and expecting a shorter life span.  People suffering from PTSD often turn to alcohol or drugs, or find themselves withdrawing from family and friends.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of domestic violence and might be suffering from PTSD, effective help is available.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are evidence-based treatments that teach victims how to deal more effectively with their thoughts and feelings, and to reclaim the life they knew prior to the trauma.  

To inquire more about PTSD, CBT, or ACT, or to schedule an appointment for assessment or treatment, contact The Center for Stress and Anxiety Management at 858-354-4077 or csamsandiego@gmail.com
