Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Children and Teens

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a major trauma. Children and teens with PTSD can have a number of symptoms after a trauma that fall into three categories: 1. Reliving the trauma in some way. 2. Attempts to avoid anything that reminds the child or teen of the trauma. 3. Very high anxiety (also called “hyperarousal”) and being easily startled. Children and teens with PTSD usually have some symptoms from each of these categories. Click below to read more… Anxiety BC – anxietybc.com

  1. Guys, kick away your panic attacks doesn’t have to be hard (I used to think it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a panic and anxiety remedy called Zomopanic Eraser (google it). Seriously, that program has changed my life. I probably shouldn’t even be mentioning it cause I don’t want a bunch of other folks out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am in a good mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  2. i think we should make a group up on Facebook for the people like us beacause we all understand each other and got the same problem

  3. I have (PTSD) i saw my friend almost beaten to death and i also saw a kid got beaten almost to death i have horrific nightmares i am on alert 24/7 i cant sleep sometimes and i drink to take the problems away… until now that shit still affects my damn life…i am sorry i could not done anything

  4. Also, I think psychologists should be broken down like doctors with required specialty exams. Just like how you wouldn’t go to a pediatrician for adult gynecology. There should be specialists in each area not in treatments but rather in what they treat. I see way too much experimentation on patients in psychology, and horribly so in psychiatry. Let’s try meds x, y, and z, and if they don’t work for you we can go with a, b or c.

  5. It’s messed up that the media emphasis is on veterans rather than encompassing the whole of PTSD sufferers. Not to mention acting like this is new when it’s happened for thousands of years.
    They really seem to make it look like unless you’ve signed yourself up for war you can’t suffer. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been shunned for telling someone I have PTSD, and them rolling their eyes and saying “You haven’t been to war…” It sucks. At least veterans have support…

  6. Hi! thanks for this helpful video. By the way, I notice many people keep on talking about panic and anxiety treatment known as Zomopanic Eraser (search on google), but I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you thought about Zomopanic Eraser? I have heard several unbelivable things about it and my work buddy finally stop his panic attacks using it, but he refuses to tell me 🙁

  7. I have ptsd although I havent’ been ‘diagnosed’ I know that I have something and this fits the bill.
    When I was twelve my mother forced me to watch as she confronted the homeowner of the house that we were living in. She started yelling at her and things turned ugly to the point that someone pulled out the knife (god I’m getting upset again.)
    now I’m 14 and my mother denies she did such thing and when I tried to talk to her about it she looks at me like I’ve gone crazy.I have no one to talk to.

  8. I have been living with PTSD all my life. They give advice to parents on what they can do, but I’m the actual victim here, what can I do?

    PTSD started happening to me just recently, and im only 16…….I was raped by my babysitter when I was only 4-5 (god I still can’t fully remember but I could feel the emotional pain now) and then my mother became married to an abusive alcoholic that tortured every1. Their intensive fights were just horrific, and back then they didn’t affect me at all, but now I’m always disoriented, feeling in a dreamy state 24/7, like being shot up on Novocaine and NEVER being relieved of the side effects 🙁

    I got PTSD when I was 9 because at that time, my father died in an awful car accident. I didn’t sleep, I got horrific nightmares, I started get distracted over everything, and I started getting really bad nervous breakdowns. I didn’t know what was going on because I was 9, but one day my mom took me to the hospital to see any results, and I remember the doctor saying a bunch of letters, and said it was a stress disorder (post traumatic). And I guess I had to wait a while to feel normal again.

  12. I got PTSD when I was younger from choking on an apple and almost dying. I didn’t know how bad it was until just today. I thank my parents for taking me to a doctor and seeking help for me. I’m now a perfectly teenager. It really has changed my life. I really encourage y’all out there who have this terrible disorder, that I to have went through and had, to seek help to recover from it.

    I got PTSD from being bullied, and it wasn’t even physical. But apparently it was that bad that my brain decided to bury it all. My childhood is a black hole.
    I recommend people who are going through this to seek help. This disorder can become really severe.

  14. Unlike what the others have said, the severity of a traumatic event does not matter for PTSD. All that matters is how it has affected you, personally. Yes, you are perfectly fine. There is nothing wrong with not getting PTSD. In fact, that is better because you can move on with your life. There are many people who experience traumatic events who do not produce PTSD. Like I said, all that matters is how a person has personally responded to an event.

  15. some do and some dont. not to say that what you experianced was not horrible but thats pretty mild compared to what most people go through to get ptsd. they usually lose everyone in there life and get raped or abused with weapons and so on. also its not over one day. it mainly happens when it happens over and over. alot of people with horibble ptsd would have horrible things happen almost everyday for years, also its worse to get it as a kid than an adult. more common when your young to get it

  16. Depends on the conditions in which your father died.

  17. more of a fear of not knowing if the air I am breathing is safe or deadly. I have since then moved out of that house and I have gotten better but still get some minor attacks every once in a while. I never thought I was going crazy, I felt like I was dying.

  18. developed by your beleifs you formed of what was hapening to you perhaps fear of going crazy etc ? due to the gas being unknown

  19. There are way too many children who have seen and experienced trauma. We need to do a better job of protecting our children. Check out traumainchildhood.

  20. I saw my dad pass right in front of me and had to pick him up out of the bed and try and revive him while the EMTs were coming and didn’t get PTSD. I was depressed about it but it’s almost been 3 years and I try not to think about it. I know he is in a good place now and watching down over me and my family. I was 16 when it all happened. Is it normal to not get PTSD over a death? Or am I just diffrent?

    Quite similar. I was dumped and humiliated in front of all my friends, after it being revealed that she had cheated on me on three occassions – and then attacked with a knife by one of her friends who wanted in with her.
    I went undiagnosed for three quarters of a year.

  22. I dealt with an un-detectable natural gas leak that got me to the E.R. twice. Took 3-4 months before it was discovered and by then my health was so bad I couldn’t walk around the block. Now I think/hope I am recovering and am almost positive I got ptsd from it.

  23. @MrCombatveteran i commend you for your service. thank you, and im sorry for your pain.

  24. I got PTSD as an eleven year old child after being violently bullied on a daily basis. It was left undiagnosed and ignored for six years. I stopped speaking much after the second year. I know for a fact that you get sicker as time passes, and it is the worst possible thing you can do to tell someone to get over it.
