It was once considered unique to military victims. But now it is known to be a problem that can afflict all segments of society.
It could be caused by bullying, a workplace trauma, being the victim of a crime, or childhood experiences like hearing your parents fight.

It is more treatable and with better outcomes than it was ten to 20 years ago.
In his words, we understand more about the way it occurs and what to do about it.
