Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD, may be found present in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event.
According to Psychiatrist Dr Eugene Allers, up to 25% of South Africans could possibly suffer from traumatic stress disorders. This is due to the high crime and vehicle accident rates in South Africa. PTSD is an anxiety and stress disorder that can develop after an individual has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event that is sudden and/or unexpected.
These traumatic experiences can result in the individual undergoing psychological injury, which in return affects their emotions, thoughts and everyday life.
PTSD is treatable through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which focuses on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. CBT-Therapist's Dr. Shane Pienaar du Bruyn will help you set goals for your therapy, teach you coping techniques that you will be able to use even after your therapy has ended.
