Posttraumatic stress disorder is a form of anxiety disorder. It occurs after an individual has suffered or witnessed a traumatic event, such as war, physical violence, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster. The individual will suffer from persistent symptoms that include depression, anger, nervousness, distraction, flashbacks, and night terrors. They may also suffer from an inability to feel or express emotions that is related to dissociative disorders used as a coping mechanism. PTSD can be categorized as acute or chronic. Acute posttraumatic stress disorder occurs within the first month after experiencing the traumatic event. Complex PTSD is caused by chronic exposure to a traumatic event, such as sexual or emotional abuse, in which the victim cannot escape or has no control over the situation.

Finding the correct therapist to treat posttraumatic stress disorder begins by finding a licensed behavioral health or medical professional. Often a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist or physician will have advanced training in hypnosis. By going to a certified and trained professional for hypnotherapy clients can be more assured of receiving ethical and safe treatment.
