Trauma related Disorders - DRHC Dubai Psychiatry Clinic

TRAUMA-RELATED DISORDERS are a group of mental health conditions that can occur after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. These disorders can affect individuals differently and may include:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist act, war/combat, rape, or other violent personal assault. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Acute Stress Disorder (ASD):

Similar to PTSD, ASD occurs in response to a traumatic event and is characterized by symptoms such as dissociation, intrusive memories, and avoidance of reminders of the event. However, ASD symptoms occur within one month of the traumatic event and last for a minimum of three days and a maximum of one month.

Adjustment Disorders:

These are emotional or behavioral symptoms that occur in response to a stressful event or change in a person's life, such as divorce, loss of a job, or a serious illness. While not as severe as PTSD or ASD, adjustment disorders can still significantly impact a person's life.

Dissociative Disorders:

These disorders involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity, or perception. They can be triggered by traumatic experiences and may include dissociative amnesia, dissociative identity disorder (formerly known as multiple personality disorder), and depersonalization/derealization disorder.

Other Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders:

This category includes disorders such as reactive attachment disorder, disinhibited social engagement disorder, and acute stress reaction, which can occur in response to trauma or stress.

Treatment for trauma-related disorders often includes psychotherapy (such as cognitive behavioral therapy or EMDR), medications (such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications), and support groups.
