Complex PTSD and PTSD

Complex PTSD is specific to prolonged  repetitive trauma that typically happens in childhood – most often abuse. Also it can happen in any phase of your life. The symptoms of complex PTSD can be more enduring and extreme than those of PTSD.

Most frequently, this trauma involves long-term physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.

The following are some examples of trauma that can cause complex PTSD:

  • experiencing childhood neglect, including verbal, emotional abuse
  • experiencing other types of abuse early in life
  • experiencing domestic abuse
  • experiencing human trafficking
  • living in a region affected by war
