Among mental health professionals, complex PTSD is fast becoming a condition demanding understanding and attention. It's symptoms are similar to PTSD, yet far more pervasive.
For those who may have struggled to get traction in life despite the greatest effort, this may well be a factor worth exploring.

Very often the source of C-PTSD is Narcissistic abuse however it can also result from any prolonged exposure to negative psychological conditions from which an individual is unable to escape.
If you think C-PTSD may be something that applies to you or someone you love, a more comprehensive discussion can be found at the Australian Counselling website.
