On this episode of The Mind Deconstructed podcast, Dr. Kaz and George walk through the basic elements of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including common questions those with lived experience of trauma and their loved ones may be asking. Why do some people develop PTSD and others do not, even if they have experienced similar types of trauma? Does the timing, intensity and frequency of traumatic events matter? After a traumatic event, how much time passes before someone is considered to have PTSD? This episode will provide you with the basic understanding and future episodes will provide even more details, including treatment approaches.
