Trauma and PTSD symptoms

Symptoms of PTSD can differ widely among individuals and are influenced by the nature of the traumatic event. Teens with PTSD may experience a range of symptoms including:

  • Vivid flashbacks of the traumatic event
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Severe distress triggered by memories or reminders of the trauma
  • Physical reactions such as sweating, nausea, or pain when reminded of the trauma
  • Intense nightmares
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia
  • Avoidance of triggers that may induce a trauma response
  • Emotional numbness
  • Irritability or aggression
  • Withdrawal from close relationships
  • Thoughts of suicide

How We Treat

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological condition that can emerge in individuals who have undergone traumatic events or situations. Although commonly associated with adults and combat veterans, PTSD can also occur in young people.

It is essential to understand that while traumatic incidents typically induce stress and anxiety, the symptoms must be extremely severe to warrant a PTSD diagnosis.
Responses to similar events can vary greatly among individuals, and the triggers of PTSD are highly personal. At Los Angeles Outpatient Center, we specialize in mental health care for teens and young adults, providing paths to recovery for those impacted by PTSD.
