Five questions about PTSD

We recently published PTSD: What Everyone Needs to Know®, a scientifically-supported yet accessible resource on trauma aimed at a general audience. Post-traumatic stress disorder is an often discussed, and often misunderstood, mental health condition, that affects up to 7% of adults during their lifetime. Utilizing a reader-friendly Q&A format, the book demystifies and defines post-traumatic stress disorder, describes its effects, reveals how treatment works, and explains why everyone should know more about the role traumatic experiences play in our lives and in culture and society.

The authors, Sheila A.M. Rauch (a professor of psychology in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine) and Barbara O. Rothbaum (a professor in psychiatry and associate vice chair of clinical research at the Emory University School of Medicine) answer five questions related to misconceptions that often prevent people from seeking care in their recent post on OUPblog.
