Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, serious injury, or the threat of death. Post-traumatic stress disorder develops differently from person to person. Individuals diagnosed with PTSD respond more strongly to a dexamethasone suppression test than individuals diagnosed with clinical depression. While the symptoms of Post-traumatic stress disorder most commonly develop in the hours or days following the traumatic event, it can sometimes take weeks, months, or even years before they appear. Post-traumatic stress disorder causes biochemical changes in the brain and body that differ from other psychiatric disorders such as major depression.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health and Human Resilience is one of the best scholarly journals in Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The journal follows a stringent peer-review process that aims to improve the overall quality of the published content and attracting more number of citations. In collaborative efforts, the journal is focusing on Psychological trauma, Resilience, Psychotherapy, Dissociation, related psychological, social and medical research.
