Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious, frequently chronic, and disabling mental illness that affects children and adolescents. PTSD develops in some children (but not all) following exposure to traumatic experiences involving threatened or actual bodily harm or death. Physical abuse, accidents, natural catastrophes, and injuries are all examples of traumatic situations that can result in PTSD.
Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (complex PTSD or C-PTSD) is a disorder of anxiety that shares many of the symptoms of PTSD but also includes additional symptoms. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which was initially recognized as a condition affecting war veterans, could be caused by a variety of traumatic events, including a natural disaster, car accident, near-death experience, physical and mental abuse, or other isolated acts of violence. However, when the primary trauma is recurrent and ongoing, some professionals mental healthcare providers distinguish PTSD from its more severe sibling, complex PTSD (C-PTSD).
Ever since it was defined in the late 1980s, complex PTSD has received widespread attention. It is critical to note that it is not identified as a separate condition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), the diagnostic tool used by mental health professionals. However, in the 11th version of the “International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems”, (ICD-11) the World Health Organization (WHO) decided to incorporate C-PTSD as a distinct diagnosis in 2018.
