Understanding Psychological disorders: Trauma and its After Effects

Most people experience some sort of trauma throughout their lives and commonly there is associated with this some kind of stress related behavior being exhibited. These stress reactions usually fade over a short period of time but some can linger, causing disruption to the lives of those suffering and the people around them. This can end in serious psychological disorders (such as post traumatic stress syndrome) they can manifest into addiction, or they can be handled and as in the case of JRR Tolkein, we can get some killer books from it.

Previously known as Shellshock, Post traumatic stress disorder can manifest in many different ways and psychologists have been studying patients for decades in order to better understand the ways in which people may be affected by trauma, and how to treat the variety of manifestations.
