Abstract

This review provides an update on contemporary perspectives on post-traumatic stress disorder and challenges myths about the disorder and its treatment. Post-traumatic stress disorder has recently attracted public attention because of the impact of international terrorism, although the vast majority of post-traumatic stress disorder cases actually relate to civilian events such as car accidents, rape and violent robbery. This disorder requires deeper understanding and consensus among professionals.
