PTSD and the Wounded Soul

PTSD and the wounded soul

What human experience is the most potent trigger for post-traumatic stress disorder? Ask 100 people this question, even doctors and psychiatrists, and you would receive a list of various traumatic experiences: car crashes, house fires, sexual assaults, shootings, stabbings, kidnappings, earthquakes and so on. The experiences would be varied but the essential theme the same: the future PTSD patient is the victim of some horrible, life-threatening event.
